    In your opinion, what do you consider to be the best 4x10 cabinet for the money? Also, what amp would you consider for this 4x10 and why?

    For the money, I'd say MAG300H driving the MAG410T cab. $300 bucks each new, and of course they can be got for less.
     
  3. Avatar B410 and GK 400RB-IV

    Avatar B410 $339.00
    GK 400RB-IV $395.00 (I got mine for that much at least)

    Smokin rig for $735.00

    Though my rig is the Avatar B210 Kappa Pro w/ 400RB

    Schroeder.

    If I had a choice I'd go for a Walter Woods, TF, etc. Otherwise my Mesa 400+ would be just fine.

    My 1212 sounds great with almost any head. It makes my Hartke 3500 sound like a million bucks.

    You really need to specify new or used, and a price range. Otherwise it's just too wide open to comment for me.

    i have an svt-350 and an ampeg 410he. i like it. i think i want to switch to vox however. i still love ampeg but i have no way of transporting this monster.
     
  9. I used that very same rig for years and liked it very much. I never had any reliability issues and it sounded great.

    Used Eden 410T or SWR goliath II with a used Eden WT-400 or SWR SM-400S. Either rig would be under 800 bucks (potentially way under if you get deals), and will sound great.

    since you are located in windsor, i STRONGLY recommend that you cross the bridge over to detroit and go to low down sound. you can check out alot of nice gear there, and you could have them build you a custom 4x10 right in your price range. here's an example of a custom LDS neo 4x10 cab, and its $599...

    there's also alot in that price range new for heads. there is the gk1001rb or 700rb, the eden nemisis heads, the kustom groovebass, ashdown mag series, etc.
