Out of these four, which would you choose? Just wondering, thanks.
I like the Bassman 4*10 best. It has a hellatious punch to it like no other I've played on. IMO the Carvin 'RedEye' 4*10 is good for the price but doesn't compare to the bottom end of the Bassman. I haven't tried the Sunn 4*10, but I've played a Sunn 8x10, which was awesome, but very highly priced (used at GC). So, Fender Bassman got my vote .
Depends on what's pushing `em.
If you've got a head that puts out max power at 8 ohms, I'd take the Carvin.
The Bassman, but personally I like my Hartkes...and NO they AREN'T "tinny" quite f'ing punchy to say the least.
I love my Peavey 410TXF.
the 410 TVX is even better
Well, let's say you're pushin it with a hartke 3500 or 4000, and which would you say has the most bottom end while stile retaining the punch and definition that 410's are known for?
No it's not. Tolex rips and is much cheaper, other then that, there's no difference. I'd much rather have carpet then Tolex. That was the silliest statement I've read. The only reason Peavey changed to Tolex is because it's cheaper then the carpet.
the tvx is ported on the bottom, the tx is ported in the rear.
Cat, not to flame you. But do you realize that there's a cab called the TXF? That's ported in the front? It's identical to the 410TVX except uses carpet rather then tolex.
That's what I'm speaking about. Read up on your Peavey equip.
The 410TXF's a better cab then the 410TVX, the TVX has tolex, as I stated before, which will rip, where carpet won't.
Just a side note. A rear ported cab can be a much better cab then a front ported, providing you have it close to a wall. A rear port against a wall will give you a surround sound effect. The downside is that you have to have it next to a wall, for it to sound good.
Ci..cii..civi..civil? Ru..rude? Naaaahh.
I think someone here needs a course in communicating with his fellow humans...
Ports are omnidirectional, so it makes little, if any difference as to where they are placed.
i just got a new peavey tvx with a firebird 700 head....... oh my god....
talk about headroom, i managed about 3 on the volume and that was LOUD and CLEAN.
best bang for the bucks? YOU BETCHA
Which TVX? I run, my Firebass II 700 (I figured i'd spell it right, hehe) with a 410TXF and 115BXBW. It's sweet.
Gimme your opinions on it... I wanna get other firebass opinions.
Yep. It makes NO difference where they are placed, as long as they are not blocked.
I think this guy is about the most honest of all the bass cab makers I've seen so far. His cabinets are rated the most honestly (IMO).
Omnidirectional doesn't mean that it won't make a difference where it's placed. There's no way you're going to tell me that if you're standing behind me, and I whisper something you're gonna hear it just as well as if I whisper it infront of you. Which is exactly what would be happening pretty much, just on a louder scale with the ports. Something will go in all directions it can . Although, as I stated before, having a rear port will be better then having a front port if it's backed against the wall, then it'll create a surround sound effect.
I'm not really arguing because I have lots of tech skills. I'm just trying to use basic logic, and what you're telling me isn't working out, logically.
whispering is nothing like a port...find me a person who can identify where a 20hz (for example) sound is coming from, and I swear to god, I will eat my own arm. bass is pretty much omnidirectional below 500hz, almost entire below 150, and below 120 damn near nooone can tell.
logic is great and all, but only if you have the complete set of factors.
