    I would have to say the Peavey Black Widow 2x15 has to be the punchiest cab i've ever played, though I didn't buy it because it sounded like ass with my bassman (especially with overdrive).

    Both of my cabs sound darn punchy. I have an Eden and a hartke. I love them both, but man, that hartke weighs a ton. I wish it could unbolt into 2 210's.

  3. Hartke 410 XL (Aluminum Cone Speakers) but I've always wondered what their 810 would sound like.

    SVT 8x10 - hands down the punchiest. Not necessarily the best sounding or easiets to move. But punch it has ... Next down the list would be a pair of JBL 1x15 Cabaret bins. Still have those.

    Yeah, my vertically loaded eden 4x10 is extremely punchy. I think it's probably because of eden's high sensitivity ratings.

    Sealed arrays of 10" speakers sound punchiest to me. Examples: Ampeg 8x10, Bergantino NV610

  8. NV-610 for me. It's even punchier than the Ampeg 810, the new ones anyway....

    Without a doubt, these are the punchiest cabs I've ever played through.

  14. Peavey 410TVX, it seems faster than the Trace one and faster than my 4x8 combo.

    Can I cast two different votes?

    ...

    No one answered; I'll take that as a yes.

    --------

    [Partial 3rd vote for the Berg HT310.]
    The most beautiful sounding punchy cab I've ever heard:
    Bergantino HT310; I still JONES big time for one of these with the newer drivers that Jim B puts in his current cabs that have 10" drivers (for the past year or so); an HT410 would be even sweeter.

    All-Out punchiest I've heard:
    Schroeder 410, VERY BIG, VERY BOLD, jackhammer solid sound.
