    I am an older player and I need a good 4X10 cab! I am playing blues/rock right now so I want a solid bottom with some punch. I can drive the cab with an Eden 550 Head or an old Acoustic head.

    I used to run a WT-550 into a Fender Rumble 410 (before they changed the design)
    I loved that setup! Very impressive amount of attack and low end for a cab that fit into the front seat of my Honda. I do think it weighed about 50 or so pounds but it was designed in such a way that made it easy to carry.

    Quite honestly thinking about getting the very same cab again (you can find the orig. version for about $300)

    Take a look at Ampegs PF-410HLF cab. Surprisingly light weight with 800w handling power. Great tone. And comes with removable casters.

    Consider getting 2 2x10s and stacking them vertically or horizontally. Much easier to carry, and you'll have the option of using just one of them in smaller venues. Advantages of stacking them vertically are discussed here.

    Just bought a Rumble 410 (V 3) last month, ~63 lbs, 8 ohms, 500 watts, comes with removable casters, sounds good. If you're worried about weight, as others have said, maybe consider two 210 cabs.

    EDIT: Eden makes a 210 about which I've heard much praise.

    BareFaced 2-10 is 4 ohms, weighs 28lbs and is as loud as most 410's. Monster mini cab. Rated to 800 watts if run clean..

    I'm 54 years old and I play blues/rock. I bought a Markbass 104HF 4-Ohm cab. It weighs 69 pounds, rated at 700 watts and has a giant/huge sound. I love this MB 104HF cab. If I had to choose again yes two 210 cabs are probably best.
  10. Bergantino CN410. 49lbs. Go with the best!

    When I first started loking for a new cab I wanted a lightweight 4x10, now within the next month or so I'm set to buy a bergantino CN212.

    If you're willing to make a slight compromise, consider an Epifani 3 X 10. Rated at 700 watts and will go head-to-head with any 4 X 10 IMO. Weight is right under 50 lbs...I can carry with one hand.

  14. Amen, brother. Check out Barefaced, Greenboy, Bergantino, and Schroeder for light weight power house rigs. I imagine two of the Greenboy F112 cabinets will kill many 410's.

    You want solid bottom with some punch:

    Gallien Krueger NEO212-II (51 lbs)

  17. Very happy with my Markbass 410, maybe not the best but it's light, tuff and sound good to my ears.

    Hartke Hydrive 410. Light for a 410, solid tone and easy to move since they have a "thin" profile. Pretty budget friendly too.

    2 vertical 2x10s or 2x12s are my preferred way to go.

    Here is 2 GK 210sbxII cabs (400 watts rms X 8Ω each) powered by a LittleMark II that I used for years:


    I upgraded about a year ago to 2 GK 212MBE Neo cabs (600 watts rms X 8Ω each) and a GK MB800

    The cabs a lightweight 34 lbs each versus an Eden D410XLT (I had before the 2x210 GKs) which sounded great but weighed 98 lbs and awkward to carry & lift. And hard to hear it blasting past my knees. :smug:

  20. I have a SWR Golight 410 the ported version weighs roughly 54 lbs. Sounds great it's just been sitting cause it's too loud for most the places I play in.
