    i've read a lot of your message.. and every one of you seems to prefer cabs of 12" with the thunderfunk..
    is someone try it with a 4x10?
    i'm looking for an Aguilar GS410?
    is the thunderfunk gonna have enough power? what are you thinking about that??

    i would reccomend going with a 4 ohm 410 with the t-funk. reports from guys who know better than me say that the t-funk is a bit louder than the eden or swr 400 watt amps. even an 8 ohm 410 would be loud enough for a lot but i'd probably go with a 4 ohm model just to use all the watts. And yeah, it's gotta sound good. The t-funk sounds similar (but not the same so no rock throwing :bag: )
    as swr/edn amps, and those are great with a 410.

    The most popular cab with the Thunderfunk is the AccuGroove Tri 210L. Don't think of this as half a 4x10. It's a full-range loud cab. The El Whappo is the only cab anyone would ever need, but starting with a Tri 210L and then adding a Whappo Jr. would be a better choice. Remember, the AccuGroove's have the AccuSwitch that changes the impedance form 4 to 8 ohms so you can always match impedances for full power.

    Scotty Simpson, bass and bandleader for Travis Tritt uses a 400-watt Thunderfunk with an Ampeg 8x10 and says it's loud enough for arenas.

    I use it with an Ampeg SVT6x10-HLF. Sounds killer! That deep "concert bass" tone, yet it is warm and has a nice presence that mixes perfectly with my two guitar band.

    I use my TFB-420 with an 8 ohm SWR Goliath III 410 and it sounds great. Plenty loud enough for most gigs I play. If you always play with the 410 only I'd agree that you'd be better to get a 4 ohm cabinet. In my situation when I require the extra volume I always use either my Berg 8 ohm HT210 or SWR Goliath Jr. III 210 with the Goliath 410 which brings the impedance down to 4 ohms. IMO 6 10's sound even better than the 410 cabinet alone.
