    Need a recommendation. I have a friend looking for a 410 cab that is voiced for deep bass. I have been told that an Ampeg SVT410HLF would be a good choice.

    I have no idea what all the suffix letters mean in the Ampeg cabinet lines, and they seem to have had a LOT of different models of 410 cabs over the years, I guess they're all voiced a little differently?

    Or, any other recommendations for a good, DEEP sounding model of any other manufacture 410 cab? We're open to suggestions, high-end or true-fidelity is not a specific requirement.

    D410XST - David Eden.. extremely low frequency range and projects well

    They are, but any of Ampeg's cabs with the designation LF or HLF mean they go quite low. The SVT410hlf, the PF410hlf...etc.
     
  4. I had the SVT410HLF with an SVT 4-Pro head and now have an Eden D410XLT with a WT-800 and I think that the Eden digs deeper, but to me sounds best with an Eden head. Also, the Eden 410XST is suppose to have deeper lows than the XLT line.

    I've heard that the DNA DNS-410 cab can play extremely low as well.

    I can't comment on any of the boutique designs - but I do absolutely love when there's one of those ampeg or eden cabs in the backline. I've been using an SWR Goliath III for over ten years and recently replaced all the drivers with Eminence Legend BP 102s - I think these are the same as the stock ampegs - and they sound huge (to me).

    Genz Benz Uber Bass or the older XB's. Haven't heard anything go lower or deeper, IMHO!

    They're not...the stock Ampegs have a custom deeper back plate that allows them to get deeper lows without pinging early. But if they're working for you, no big whoop if they're not identical.
     
  8. There is only one in my mind and that's the ACME B4. :)

    Read my mind, Paul. +1.
     
  10. If you can find one, and you're not afraid of a little weight, the old Ampeg PR410 HLF is the deepest of them all.

    Aguilar GS 410, Markbass 410 HF, Eden 410 XLT Immediately come to mind.

    I'd go with the SVT410HLF. Definitely my favorite cab of all time to date.

    The original SWR Goliath 4x10 made by Eden...

    And the Bag End loaded SWR Big Ben.
     
  14. G-K's 410RBH! 96lbs worth of tone though.

    Yep, if I wanted a 410 with a good deal of low end (without losing the mids), this would be my choice as well.

    If you can find one indeed. Great cab, best Peavey cab ever by far, harder to find than a PR410HLF with perfect tolex.

    + whatever on the Acme B4.
     
  17. Totally agree. If not the 410 RBH, I'd still make sure it's ported well.
     
  18. So, 18 posts in and ACME, Aguilar, Ampeg, GK, Peavey, Eden, Bag End, SWR, Markbass, Genz Benz are all the deepest :-\

    The list could get pretty long...
     
  19. I would bet on Acme being the deepest, granted you have the power to push it.
