    The title kind of says it all. I'm looking for the smallest 4x10 "4ohm" cab I can get. Of course I want a quality product, but for this thread, weight, Neo or ceramic doesn't matter. Just let me know whats out there in a small form factor....Thanks.

    Subbed. This should be interesting. I know a couple decades ago Peavey had a small 410 cab but I'll bet it wasn't very light. Very portable though. They all seem to require a certain amount of internal volume thus the extra size. I think a lot of TB'ers are starting to opt for the 2 x 210 configuration....

    I'd imagine most 410's will be at least 24" square.

    IME the Barefaced 410 might be the a good choice to checkout because, while it will equal the size of the smallest regular 410's, it will be much lighter and much louder. Don't worry about the 8 ohms. It will still be much louder.
     
  5. My pair of SVT201AVs are 27lbs each. Chain em for 400W @ 4 Ohms.

    Strictly in terms of cubic inchage, the Barefaced Four10 suggested above is hard to beat (unusually shallow with its 13" depth) but, as also mentioned, not 4 ohms: it can be had in either a 8- or 2-ohm version (not sure if they plan to offer it in a switchable version in the future, as they have with the new Two10S), which might or might not be of interest to you depending on your reason(s) for wanting a 4-ohm cab (half of your amps, per your profile, can go down to 2 ohms, but not e.g. the GK 400RB, in case you wanted a sensitive cab for the lowest-powered amp in your stable).
    Barefaced Bass - Four 10

    If a sleeker form factor trumps literal volume (as in room occupied, not loudness) in your book, these two would (...amply) deliver, even if(/precisely because) they're not what you'd expect as 410s go:
    HG410 Loudspeaker – check with your local dealer
    RS410V/RS410VT | RevSound
    The Bergantino HG410 (it has three woofers in the front and a fourth one in the back that even outdoors, with no back wall reflecting sound, still contributes lows, which are omnidirectional); and the RevSound RS410V (a vertical 4x10, available in either 8 and 4 ohm config).

    Bergantino HG410. Same size as a 212, less than 2-square-foot footprint. 48 pounds.
