    Well i managed to blow my cheap 210 last night at a gig. Seems as though the power rating of 150 watts was no joke. I had it running crossed over at 500hz with my 15" below it, but it made a big crackle at the beginning of covering sober by tool. :crying:

    Looking at the agular s 410 as a replacement, but i would like to get some owners opinions on the cabinet before i blow my money on it.

    Will it do top 40's covers, as well as be able to play anything im looking to play.

    Head : Hartke 7000
    Bottom Cab: Custom 15" speaker in Hartke 115XL Cab
    Bass: 87' MM Sterling 4

    Did you see my thread from last night? Sterling + S410 = heaven.

    I was too busy with a lady last night, although this forum is just as addicting as bass playing and women.

    Sounds good man! I dont love SWR Electronics, but im sure the burpy voice of my hartke head with a touch of distortion off the sansamp will definatly make for a killer rig.

    SOLD! (Still would appreciate any body elses opinions on this cabnet)

    I think the 410 would work well for top 40s and many applications. Great cabinet. I'm currently running an AG 500SC through a 4ohm S 410. Not quite as full in the low end as two GS112s, but I prefer the 410 at the moment because it cuts through a mix so wonderfully. I'm really impressed with the tweeter. It's smooth and the overall sound of the cab is well balanced. Another plus is that the S 410 is rugged and quite portable.
     
  5. I have played an AG500 through the S410 by itself and stacked with an S210 on several occasions. It's nice to have the backline supplied by a music shop owner with great taste. The S series cabs emphasize the mids which means it cuts through well. They are definitely not mid scooped like I experience the GS series cabs. I think it would meet your needs very well and the current prices are ridiculously low.

    I wouldn't want to own one personally because it is short, compact and relatively heavy (83 lbs). It rolls fine on casters if you live and gig in a paved urban environment, but I live out in a rural area and I'm getting old enough that I want that much weight in a taller cab so I can get some leverage on it for lifting into the back of my pickup.

    I'm running the S410 stacked on top of a GS212. I occasionally unplug either cab to A-B them. It's definitely more mid oriented than the 212 when PLAYING in the mids of the bass, and you expect it to be a bit weak when going for the lower registers. I'm always pleasantly surprised when that does not happen. It stays clean at moderate to loud volumes on the B. I just haven't tested it louder than that.
    It's a great cab. Get one while you still can.

    The S410 would put out even more bass if you put it on the ground next to the GS212 for your A/B tests. To me, the S410 sounds deeper and bassier than the GS410.

    I'm tempted to order another one so I can leave one at my buddy's house and have one for my own use.

    I'm sure the bass response would improve if it was on the floor. I even (necessarily) have the cabs 8 inches from the wall, so maybe I don't even know what they really sound like.:)
