    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.
