    Hey guys, can I have your thoughts about Peavey Scorpion 410 cabs?

    I have never played thru one, but have some experience with the Scorpion 10 drivers. They used the same ones in the 1810 and 1820 cabs, crossed over at 250hz.

    They don't do a lot of lows. "Honk City' is probably a pretty accurate statement. I would expect it would be heavy, and pretty loud, but not very low. I don't think they made that one very long.
     
  6. Near as I can recollect, there was no Peavey cab for bass that used the 10" Scorpion for its low end. There was a 4x10 cab in the late '80s/early '90s that had kind of a "flight case" look to it, but it wasn't a bass cab. I think the first Peavey 4x10 for bass was the 410T or maybe 410B, which used some sort of stamped frame speakers (pre-Sheffield), which was then replaced by the TX series, carpet covered cabs.

    hmmm, he said it's scorpion, so it may be aftermarket speakers. I'm going to see it later, I just wanted to get an idea on how much it's worth. It's MINT he used it at 2 gigs...a drummer friend of mine played with him and he said it's mint.

    the shefields are ok to me, they go deep, but the horn in those cabs are "ear bleeders". I hope the horn has an attenuator. If it does, turn it all the way down. I don't know how you feel about 15s but the black widows have more growl than the shefields. I guess it depends on the sound you want.
