    I own a Hartke 410XL cab with serial number H410X70189.

    I bought it used back in 1999 and was told that it was made in the USA, but is that true? I've heard that these cabs are now made in China. Does anybody know how to date and identify where it is manufactured?:confused:

    Have you tried to contact Hartke/Samson? That's the obvious place to start, especially since Larry Hartke is so open about contacting him.

    I had a 1993 XL cab, and each of the speakers had a date sticker on them. That's how I knew 2 of the speakers were replaced on my 1987 XL, too. :D

    Your Hartke cabinet was made in the USA in either the Carlstadt, NJ factory, or the Fairfield, NJ factory. If it was purchased in 1999 then it has to be. If you want to know more, there are date stickers on the drivers.

    Anyway, donĀ“t trust Larry Hartke, what would he know about Hartke amps? ;)

    Does it say 240watts?

    If yes, it is made in the US!
