    I recently scored a 410TVX along with a Kustom Groove Bass head on ebay. The kicker was that it was a local pickup sale only, so I had to have a friend of mine in Dayton pick them up. Hopefully, I can get down there soon to pick these up. My guess is that I will end up reselling the cab and possibly the head, too, but I am looking forward to hearing them both. Peavey makes very good cabs in their price range. I played a 210TX for years, and I still think highly of it. However, I am trying to stick to cabs slightly smaller than a 4x10, as they get wide to carry up and down steps.

    I A/Bed a 410TX against and SWR Goliath 2 for about 2 hours one time with a full band using an SWR SM-400S for the head. We all gave a slight sound edge to the SWR, but it was very very close. I ended up taking the SWR back to the shop and stuck with my TX (then I added a second one).

    I also used to have that same head you're running. At some point you can upgrade your head and you'll be pumping! The MkIII isn't a real powerhouse.

    I just sold my two year old Peavey Pro 410 and replaced it with a Genz Benz 610T-XB2. Killer cabinet !


    It was shipping from the Genz Benz factory in Scottsdale Arizona yesterday. Gonna take 10-15 days to get here. That kind of sucks, but it'll be well worth the wait. :hyper:

  18. I have one of these Peaveys, and although it's not my main cab anymore, it's a good one. As I understand it, its design was based on the Goliath II (rear ported, compact, yadda, yadda, yadda). I altered the crossover on mine to make the tens full range, and help alleviate the pretty noticeable mid range dip the cab has. It's interesting that Peavey followed other cab makers around the same time by changing to a larger box (TXF then TVX), with front porting (like SWR Goliath III and Eden 410T to XLT). Seems everyone wanted bigger bottom, but the cabs got even heavier, obviously. But the TX still has a place.
  19. ah right, well, i like the 15's cab ive got, that cost £75 (~$180 Aus) [www.xe.com], that sounds great, no tweeter, 2x15" BW's ;)

    Wonder why the lower cones on your 410 are a different colour, well, the center bit

    Looks to me like the top ones were re-coned. That's not a drama. It's still essentially 4 of the same speaker.

    If it were my cab, I'd be opening it up and making sure they aren't mis-matched replacement speakers. If you've gt say 2 BW's and 2 Eminence speakers in there, you're up for problems down the track.
