    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and I'm wondering if anyone on here has any real experience of Marshalls MBC 810 cabinet.
    There's not a whole lot of information about this cab online.
    I have the opportunity to pick one up relatively cheap locally, but I'm just not sure.
    I would be using the cab with an Orange terror bass 500, has anyone else used this configuration?
    I'm currently using it with a Behringer BB410, which I know seems to be the ultimate crime on here, but I've been using this Behringer cab for about 4 or 5 years with no problems whatsoever. It is simply time for an upgrade.
    I was looking at an Ampeg 410 HLF as well, but they're a bit pricy for me at the moment.

    I never played the Marshall 810, heard them once or twice pretty generic sounding cab, kinda like the Peavey TVX 810, the Ampeg 410HLF is a very dark, boomy sounding cabinet, your Behringer is a better sounding cabinet, than the HLF .. IMHO ....with any 810 cabinet, make sure you have the transportation issue figured out

    Thanks for the input. I would have thought it was heresy to admit such things on here, but I have to agree that the Behringer 410 actually sounds pretty damn good with the bass terror head. I just fancy a change more than anything else I suppose.
    The only other cab I've used with the terror is an ampeg 410HE, and it sounded quite weak and tinny to me, which is why I was considering the HLF, but dark and boomy doesn't sound particularly tempting to me either.
    I know nothing about the marshall mbc810 really, I had assumed it wouldn't be anything special considering the price price though.

    Ended up getting a USA Ampeg SVT 810E. What an amazing cabinet...
