    Hi,

    does anyone here own or have experience of a bxr 410 bass enclosure? I'm thinking of bying such a closure used, but I won't be able to test the thing before bying it :( So, any help would be appreciated!

    I have one that I bought brand new in 1989. It's a pretty underrated cabinet. They sound really good, with a whole lotta ass end for a 4x10. My amp guy intown also has one & he won't part with it either. He uses it in his recording studio as well.
    I have banged this thing around for over 15 years & it's a road warrior. It developed a slight rattle about a year ago, but all it took was a couple of wood screws in the baffle/speaker enclosure & it's good as new.

    A bit bulky by a lot of today's 4x10 cab standards, but a steal if you can get it cheap.

    I'd hesitate about buying any piece of gear w/o playing it first, but if it's in good shape you're in luck.

    First of all thanks for the opinion!

    I got two answers (another one in another forum) and they were both positive, so I bought the damm' thing. Sorry to say that it costed ~ $245, so it wasn't sooo cheap, but I think it's ok. Should be in mint.

    Perhaps I should have got the 410 - I bought the 1x15 version in the late 80's. I've still got it but I was never really all that pleased with it.

    Oh well. You can't win em all.

    Let us know how the 410 goes ilarisaari.
