    Any suggestions on a good light weight 410, that won’t break the bank

    I have the GK neo 410, 8 ohms, with wheels. Maybe 8 years old or so now. It doesn't hurt my aging back, and sounds great outdoors. Indoors, I have to work a bit to keep it from being boomy, but I've had complements on the sound from strangers and bandmates. A musician friend of mine bought one after borrowing it for a few gigs. I've gigged it steadily, and it has held up well. You can get them used for $400 or so these days, and it's worth the money...

    Ok this is what I play R&B, Jazz, Shagg, and Pop. This is what i have but will sell something to save my back. Hartke HX210 on HX115. They are light weight but not enough balls thought about getting a HX 410 to go with the 115. I also have a Epifani PS410. I love this cabinet but I’m 62 soon to be 63, I put wheels on it but I still have lift it from time to time and I’m not too proud to say it’s getting hard to lift. I would like something like the Epifani but lighter. The hartke isn’t bad, but I need that little extra
  5. Hartke HD410.

    Good combination of tone, volume, financial value and weight.

    Not tops in any category, but very strong overall.

    If you want deep lows and excellent mid/hi dispersion...look elsewhere (not 4x10s) and double your budget.

    Just a few weeks ago I was in a local shop. The sales guy was commenting on how he spent a couple hours re-arranging the bass area and asked if I was familiar with Epiphani. In truth, just by name. He told me to pick it up. Holy smokes that thing is full of helium or something! I darn near threw it across the room because I totally expected it to be a boat anchor. IDK what model, or actual weight but jeez for as big of a cab as it is it's ridiculously light. Seek one out if you're dead-set on a 410 cube. If its voice is your flavor I'd be amazed if there's a lighter 410 to be had.

    I have a GK NEO 410 as well (4 ohms). I don't use it much anymore, but loved it when I did. Light and loud.

    Rumble 500v 4x10 (with an HPF on your head or pedal..) cheap, not real heavy, and nice at low or high vol's.

    No I don’t need really deep lows because that really doesn’t work well with my style of playing. I would put the hartke 410 on top of the hartke 115. I think the 15 would give it that added low end without being muddy.

    You should go out, get a list of 4x10s that are within your budget. Line them up by weight. Then decide where your weight limit is. Then ask for opinions about those cabs. Weight and quality will both affect cost, and what you consider light might be way too heavy for some. And if you narrow it down to a few first, you'll then get folks who will add "if you like that, try this..."

    Carvin Neo 4x10s usually go pretty cheap on the used market. Built very durable out of weight saving Baltic Birch ply.

    I agree with Mexicant. A GOOD, lightweight 410 is not cheap. When you say "won't break the bank" I don't know what that means. Yes, of course I know the saying, but do you mean $100 or $600 ? A good, lightweight 410 with tax will cost you between $400-$550, but more towards the $550 mark.
