    Which 4x10 cabinet would you recommend for a clean, punchy sound? I think I would prefer to avoid ported cabinets in favor of sealed ones. I want to avoid the deep boomy bass that overpowers a room. I wanted an SWR GoLight Marcus Miller 4x10 Cabinet because it is a sealed cabinet, but I can't find one anywhere. I play a Modulus Bass, DR strings, through an SWR Marcus Miller pre-amp and an SWR WorkingPro 400 amp. Thanks for your suggestions.
  2. If you wanted a sealed cab, go find an Ampeg 410he.
  3. Eden 410XLT is ported, but not boomy.

    Hi-fi into an old tube amp
    SWR was what came to mind when I read your thread title. I really like the MM cab.

    Ampeg SVT 410he will do the trick and can be found used for cheap. Only comes in 8ohms though.

    I needed a sealed 4ohm 410 for my SVT cl so I had Fliptops build me one. I'm very happy with it.

    .. what did they use for drivers? .. and where they 4 ohms wired in series/parallel or 16 ohms in parallel
  10. 2 2x10 stacked vertically.
  11. Bergantino AE410 (maybe HD410 also??) is a very tightly voiced 410. Very light, gutsy & tight. A li'l like a sealed cab but does go nice & deep, but definately not boomy.
  12. Bergantino and Epifani.
  13. My Markbass 104HR is sealed and sounds super clean and punchy.

    I own, and enjoy Ampeg gear, but when I just checked the Ampeg web site, I see the 410he is shown to weigh 91 Lbs. Yikes! I do own a fridge, (so it's not like I'm a stranger to back problems), but man, there has got to be a lighter 410. I suppose if you go neo, you have to pay more for the lighter weight though.

    Avoid boominess by using the EQ of your amp and bass. This helps a lot.

    GK SBX plus, sounds exactly like what you are looking for, sealed cab, punchy, and loud. They turn up used fairly often and you can get them for peanuts. I had a pair of them, and I kind of wish I didn't sell them.
