    Hey Guy's
    It's probably been asked before, but I'm trying to decide
    between the Marcus SWR and the Berg.
    I'm currently playing the original Berg mini stack of two HT 1-12's but want something that sounds a little more full
    and is still easy to move.
    It's a priority for me to be able to hear myself in a dense mix, and I've read some things that say a sealed cab is
    easier to hear when you're close to it.
    My other thought was to get a third Ht 1-12, but that would require getting a 2 ohm stable amp.
    I would appreciate the the input from anyone who has played both.
  2. I've not compared the two, nor even PLAYED the Golight, But, the AE410 is a BEAST!!!! HIGHLY reccomend. I Dunno about sealed cabs being easier to hear close etc... I've had many sealed cabs- Bergs & others, currently a NV412 which I love & is closing the gap to being my fave NV cab - the NV215 was my fave, but this NV412 is a ripper.
    I always found the AE410 to cut thru really well, it's a fairly 'present' 410- not scooped at all, but can EASILY get bassy & handle it with ease if U turn up the lows.
    It's a phenominal cab, I would've kept it if I didn';t have a NV cab already- I didn't need two big(ish) cabs.
    I do like the sealed cab flavour myself, & probly went FOR that sound even with the AE410. The slightly rolled off lows suit me well. But the AE is certainly a 'tight' 410 & could easily fool me into thinking it was a sealed cab, but the lows are surely there if you want 'em.
    I apologise for my rambling. I'm shocking at describing sounds & generally ramble on to cover my flaws. hope it helps some

    Thanks for the reply, Yeah I figured the Berg was a great cab, I just wondered if anyone had been able to A/B the Berg and the Marcus.
    It's been so long since I played through a sealed cab I can't remember if there was any real difference.
