    Which and why?

    The Hartke is 400 watts at 8ohms

    The Fender is "700 Watts (Program), 350 Watts (Continous) Handling Capability "....what does this mean?

    Also the Hartke has their aluminum cones and the fender has "Fender Special Design Eminence" speakers..not sure if these are alu or paper?

    Also it would be set up with an ampeg solid state head, which is still to be purchased.

    The Harke's 400 watts is the continuous measure, not program (which means 'peak' I think). So it's 50 watts more than the Fender. The Fender speakers are paper, I think; I've never seen an aluminum cone Fender cab.

    ^ Having never played the Fender, I would have to advise you to purchase the Hartke.

    Unlike my other esteemed forum-members, who shall remain nameless, and who have chosen to give you uneducated opinions on this subject, I have reached my conclusions through rigorous psychic channeling of numerous celebrity ghosts...all of who think the Hartke's definitely the way to go.
