    I am looking at bying a 410, either Ampeg or Mesa and I would like to know if anyone has a reason to pick one over the other, I am really impressed with the new mesa line but Ampeg is so proven? Also if there are any other similar cabs that are wicked do share.
     
  2. Of the 4x10's, I think Ampeg has Mesa beat with the BSE-HL4 series. Huge lows and tuned really well as a stand-alone cabinet. I have Mesa cabs, a 4x10 and 2x15, and I use the 2x15 as a standalone 70% of the time.

    Check out Genz Benz cabinets. Between the GB-410-xb2 and the Ampeg BSE-HL4, I think the GB wins out and weighs a bit less...almost 30 lbs. less.
