    The VX and Transporter/XL cabs sound very different, I suggest playing through each of them to see which you like more if you are set on hartke. Also, a 2x15" will sound differant than a 4x10". Are you planning on both the 2x15" and a 4x10"? I suggest starting with one or the other, than adding or changing as you need. The 3500 can be had for $300 used and I really have yet to hear a bad thing about it.

    i was gunna do both the 215 and the 410

    or maybe i should just use a 115 and a 410


    and i dont care what the brand is, the cabs i found all happened to be hartke.
