    I am looking for a new 410. Should I go with the new Neo 410 or a RBX 410. I will be using a 700RB II and then the Fusion 550 once it comes out.

    They're both great cabs, though the Neos are MUCH lighter. What kind of music are you playing? That will affect my recommendation.

    I guess I can classify my music as pop/rock. It can go from something like the killers into a Jimmy Eat World like chorus.

    Not really...
    ...According to the specs that I read on RMC Audio's website, the 410 Neo is 81 lbs., and the 410 RBX is 92.5 lbs. Only an 11.5 lb. difference :meh:.

    But, these are only printed specs, and not real life experience...

    Here is the difference:

    RBX: boomier, punchier

    NEO: Warmer, more even frequency response

    This is going just from memory, but the Neo410 is by far the heaviest of the Neo line. The Neo212 comes in roughly the same size box but weighs substantially less. The Neo410 has individual chambers for each 10, and a lot of extra bracing. I imagine it would be an absolute monster for tone and volume, but not very light in the world of neo cabs.

    TS: Another thing to consider is voicing. Based on what I've read (never done an A/B) the RBX has a "classic rock and blues voicing" (whatever that ACTUALLY means is beyond me) whereas the Neo stuff is supposed to have more of a flat voicing... Good luck!

    Agree about the printed specs. The GK 2007 catalog I have lists the 410 RBX at 91.5 lbs, the 410 Neo at 78 lbs. Again, only a 13.5 lb difference, but it's noticeable imho. Not that 78 lbs is exactly light in any case, but every little bit helps.
