  1. Neighbor called me down because they were cleaning out their garage and wanted me to look at some sled for the kids. Well........this cab was just sitting there with a bunch of other random stuff so I asked about it. They said...."you can just take it; we felt bad about tossing it in the garbage. It works fine as far as we know."

    Needless to say, im pretty happy about getting this thing for ZERO DOLLARS. Also got 2 vintage Coleman steel belted coolers that have me smitten. What a day!!!



    I would be remiss if i didnt plug my EP here as well.

    I have stronger feelings than I probably should for my Coleman steel-belted cooler.

  5. Is it a BSE410 (HLF???) ???
    Congrats! !!

    Funny, I just took a closer look.... looks like a SVT410HE inside a larger 410HLF box :roflmao:
    But still my guess is the BSE410 made in US by SLM either late 90's or early 2000s

  7. Yes, it's a PR-410HLF. It has higher power handling than the svt410hlf. It goes just as low and has cast low frequency driver frames and a better horn. This cab does not suffer from a lack of mids like the svt410hlf does. But it's heavy as hell and ugly as sin.

    The SVT 410hlf's don't have that lack of mids since about 2010 or thereabouts, either.

    I've only used a PR-410hlf once on a fly gig years ago, but my experience with it was pretty positive. Does go super low but like Chris said, it sounds a lot tighter than the SVT 410hlf's made till about 2010.
     
  10. Jimmy, are saying you think the mid-shyness of the SVT-410HLF has been completely fixed since 2010? I wouldn't know if it had. Mine- which does suffer- was bought new in 2010. My understanding is that the mid-range was only somewhat improved since 2010, not fixed entirely - but again- I haven't played through one.

    Well I guess that's in the ear of the beholder whether it's completely fixed or not. I couldn't tell you if the mids are as present as an 810e, and honestly, I doubt they're that level, as there's always some tradeoffs for going super low. But I thought they were quite improved.

    Nice score!
    I toured with a bassist with a late 90s PR410HE, it was a beast to move, but sounded like a beast, too!

  13. Nice score, congrats! I played through one of of those in a Guitar Center last year and loved it. I tried to lift it and fell out of love pretty quickly :wideyed:
