    Can anybody suggest a 4x10 with deep, warm lows? I've tried the eden 410xlt and didn't like it very much. I don't slap and would prefer an old school sounding cabinet. 2x12's interest me but i'm afraid they might not be loud enough for some situations.

    thanks,

    steve

    I've played through mesa 4x10" once, and was amazed how deep and clear it sounded, going through mix like never before, so can anyone tell me, what did I heard? Low end or low mids? Don't laugh 'cause I didn't hear many 4x10" cabs.

    The Aguilar GS410 has huge sounding lows, with a wonderful clarity. Great cab! Though, the Eden 410XST has deep lows too.

    Hmmmm...clarity vs warm. It seems to me that to get more of one you have to give up some of the other. Eden is a good case in point The D410XLT, to my ears, is a "warmer" cab than the XST. Conversely the XST has more "clarity". Go figure!

    want to save a lotta bucks and go low?

    Peavey! I can only speak for the older 410TX(rear-ported), but it gets really low, I think it's tuned to around 32hz. I did the mid-modification on mine and it's not as scooped sounding as before. I love the cab but I'm selling it locally(it's abount 90-95lbs) to buy a 112 and 115. I've been bitten by the Avatar bug!

    Low and smooth? IMO, best bet is the Aguilar GS410. I have one, and it covers both rock and jazz gigs excellently (is "excellently" even a word?).

    thanks for the suggestions everyone. i think i'll pass on the acme's - too power hungry. the aguilar looks like one i should test out. has anyone tried the older, rear ported swr goliaths or the eden 410t? are these any smoother than the front ported cabs? i don't know, i used to own a 410xlt and thought it sounded kind of harsh.

    A year ago or so I auditioned a bunch of 4x10 cabs, including sWR, Eden (XLT), GenzBenz, Ampeg, Aguilar, Peavey. Bass and amp remained the same throughout the process. The Aguilar 4x10 provided the biggest lows under those particular test conditions.

    Pre EB and Alexclaber, you are striking matches too close to my pilot light! My GAS will ignite. I already have one Low B2. Must I get another?
