    i have couple questions about the Hartke 410/4.5XL cabinets.
    does anyone know what type wood is used in making these cabinets? birch?plywood?particle board?
    they are rated at 400watts-but does hartke use the same drivers for these cabinets as they use in their transporter series?the local music store is having a sale on the XL series and wanted more info before considering hartke or should i steer clear of them?..thanks in advance.
  2. The difference between the XL series and the transporter series is simple: quality. The XlL series cabs have thicker wood and are built to last. Also the Hartke 4x10 transporter only handles 300 watss @ 8 ohms. The XL Cabs handle 400 watts@8 ohms. IMO the XL series drivers also sound much cleaner and punchier. Hope this helps!
