    I'm getting a 4X10 with a head and that is that. As for price I'm somewhat but not too much conserned. Basically I want to know anything anyone knows of the two brands, quality, tone, flexibility, color yadda yadda, everything. O and also I was particularly looking at the 4X10 SWRs(not the Goliath 3) and they're about the same price as the more expensive Harke 4X10s so from what I heard is SWRs sound better but do the lower end SWRs sound better that the higher end Harkes.

    Ok to be more specific. Which of these two would you recomend. A SWR workingman 4X10 at 400watts at 8ohms or a Harke 4X10 400watts at 8ohms. Did i spell ohms right.

    Personally I would get the Hartke, assuming it's the XL series model.
