    Polls like these are useless, IMO, since they fail to mention some of the best cabs. Bergantino, Epiphani, EA, Aguilar, EBS . . . . oh my, how the list goes on . . . .

    . . . so, I voted "other". Hope that helps. :rollno:

    Another vote for "Other" as I don't see my particular favorite there.

    I see this all the time about polls like these, but do you like apples or oranges. Its hard to just say one 4x10 is better than another. If you're looking for something in your face, maybe an Ampeg or Peavey, for clean and modern, maybe GK or SWR. Just depends on what sound you're looking for.

    Of the currently available 4x10's, I'd say either pick up an older Diesel or RR Mesa Boogie, or get thee an Epifani. However, EA's new 4x10 is soon to hit the market, and I am sure that it will be a contender for the "top dawg" position.
  9. Check out my line. It'll be a brand new construction and design: www.schroedercabinets.com

    My cabinets will be introduced at the summer NAMM in Nashville.

  10. None of those should be on that list. If you mean best all-around VALUE, then I'd vote for Peavey...but none of those can touch anything along the lines of Aguilar, Accugroove, Bergie, EA, Acme, etc, for best all-around tone/quality/power handling/frequency response/bass goodness.

    I can't BELIEVE you put Fender on that list. :D

    bergantino makes 4x10's, eh?!
  12. Close enough, their 3x10 can probably kick the ass of most 4x10's! :D

    touche! bergies are mad nasty!
  14. That's another problem with these polls. There are some oddball speaker combinations like the Bergie 322, the Accugroove El Whappo, and the Phil Jones line (5" drivers) that should be on any "Best Bass Cabinet" list, but don't happen to be 4x10s.

    They look cool. Could you provide some spec's besides power handling?
    Also....I tried to check out the homepage listed on your profile. Do you know it takes you to a porn site? Something to do with beavers. :ninja:

    I checked out your cabs... where are the other 2 woofers in the 4x10? Are they tucked away inside, in some sort of horn? Interesting...

    high dollar: Epifani Ultralite - the fact it weighs half of most other 4x10's, yet punches bigger tone than any of them, puts it FAR above them all.

    value: Acme B-4 4x10 - slams your low B like no other, weighs 2/3's of most other cabs, and wont cost you an arm and a leg. not to mention, Andy lets you demo the cab for 2 weeks! incredible value.
