    Hello again,

    I am considering purchasing a friend of mine's Hartke 210TP (2x10) cabinet. I have no experience with this cabinet or any Hartke products for that matter. Can anyone clue me in to the general sonic quality of this cab? I will be using it with my Crate BX2115 Combo. Also, Do aluminum drivers (speakers) have a noticeable different sonic character than let's say paper or polypropylene ones?

    Please, any feedback/info is highly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I'd say, in general, stay away from the Transporter series from Hartke

    Aluminium drivers do sound very transparent - sort of like - what you get from your bass when you play it without an amp. I don't know what the 15" aluminium drivers from Hartke sound like but I wasn't exactly jumping for joy when I played on a 4x10TXF...Also I found that there isn't much you can do with the sound with the EQ/settings on your amp...

    ...But this is only my humble opinion - try the cab out yourself & make up your own mind...

    Hope this helps
