Video Review - Carvin BX500 Head & BR410 Cabinet

August 19, 2009
PG's Dan Berkowitz walks us through a video review of the Carvin BX500 and BR410 cabinet. The amp is a 500 watt, Class D head, which weighs a meager six pounds. The tiny head's dimensions are 3"x9"x14" and the preamp is a 3-stage, Class A, which features one 12AX7 tube. The front panel knobs include Contour, Bass, Compressor, Treble, Master Volume and a 9-band EQ.

The BR410 cabinet is made of a cross grain laminated multi-ply plywood and features internal bracing to eliminate cab resonance. It comes loaded with four heavy-duty, 200w 10" woofers, 1" Titanium HF driver.
