    I´ve seen a used Glock Heart Core cab for sale. It´s rated at 400W RMS and has a 15"+10" configuration.
    How loud can one expect to be with such a cab (with a pre/poweramp setup)?
    Ive used an SWR 2x12 bigfoot in the past and that was loud enough but muddy. And I also tried a EBS 210 alone. That could not handle my lows but was really articulate. I like fat lows but only play 4-strings but my attack is quite hard and that´s why the EBS farted I guess.
    How would the Glock compare. Also what is one of these in good used shape worth?

    I haven't tested that model, but the Glock 2x12 gets plenty loud while still remaining clear. I'm positive the Heartcore will outperform the SWR. Don't know the used price.

    Thanks.
    The one I´ve found is €590 or about $700.
    But I need to sell my EBS 210 first. Seems hard to sell. Strange as its a really good 210. Ive had it for sale in Sweden for a month now. :(
