This listing is for both the 4x10 speaker cabinets from my former bass stack. I am willing to sell individually and am open to offers.
Reason for sale: Technology has marched onward somewhat since I purchased these and I’m upgrading to something smaller to store and easier to carry up stairs.
Description of 410-T: The 540 Watt, 4 Ohm model with four 10 inch drivers and a large circular reflex port on the rear. It was built in the early-mid 2000s and at 37Kgs it is the lighter of the two. In the centre of the woofer array there is a horn tweeter. The overall sound of this cab is based around the low-mids and has a rather neutral tone. Basically your standard ‘Cover Band’ bass guitar sound. Fits in nicely and punches through the bottom end of the guitar mix.
Description of D410XLT: The 700 Watt, 4 Ohm model with four 10 inch drivers and the two front facing reflex slots. This particular one dates from the late 2000s and weighs 46 Kgs. In the centre of the woofer array there is a horn tweeter. The overall sound of this cab is more modern and ‘scooped’ than the other. There’s a lot more low end and clattering highs for that grindy ‘New String’ sound. When using both units together, this is the predominant tone you hear.
I’ve owned both units since mid 2015 and inspected them thoroughly before purchase and regularly during my ownership. Prior to me the 410-T was used for five years in a church band (I actually picked it up at a church.) The D410XLT was (I’m told) used mostly in a private rehearsal room. Both units were kept in aluminium flight cases that were sold separately. While I’ve owned them they’ve been stored in a heated, double glazed conservatory. I’ve been using the 410-T at rehearsals a few times per year and the D410XLT at occasional small gigs. When playing any room of medium size and above I’ve been using both cabinets and rarely go above a moderate volume.
Both cabinets are in excellent condition and have been regularly cleaned, tested and serviced. As far as I can tell from the solder joints, all the drivers are original from the factory. All eight drivers are completely free of those concentric rings that come from over-excursion. The internal wiring and sockets match Edens suppliers at time of manufacture and are in perfect order. Even though I don’t use them, the jack sockets have been tested and work as expected. When originally made, these cabinets had a gold/black makers plate on the upper left of the grilles. These were made of thin sheet metal that had developed sharp edges and were removed when I commissioned them.
The rear of both cabinets have a plastic insert that holds the connection sockets and the mix control for the tweeter. Originally, both units came with standard quarter inch sockets and the now (thankfully) obsolete 4mm ‘Banana Plug’ connectors. I deleted the Banana connectors and replaced them with the more modern Speakon sockets. If you’d like to inspect the quality of my solder joints, just ask!
I’ve priced these for a quick sale and any inspection welcomed prior to purchase. Pickup from North West London or possible delivery in South East England. If you have any questions not answered above, please feel free to drop me a line.
Thanks for reading!
