    Comments about SWR Goliath IV 4X10 Bass Speaker Cabinet:

    My main instrument since the 60 s is guitar. I also started playing drums and bass in the eighties. I did play some bass in the early 70s as well and I always remember thinking there really wasn't a good bass rig anywhere. At least not compared to today's 500 watt and up amps and this cabinet . The SWR Goliath III. The first time I tried the Goliath III I happened to be in a WISCONSIN Pawn shop. Someone pawned off a 4 ohm cabinet. I tried it with some bass amp they had there it was 800 watts. It floored me. Clean rich deep tone yet with that tweeter incredible kids and highs! I ended up getting a second cabinet immediately only it was an 8 ohm cabinet. I use a QSC 1850 HD STEREO POWER AMP. Each channel sets itself to the correct ohms. Since then I have replace the drivers, not because hey we're bad but I discovered these Neo magnet speakers. 300 watts each . They sound every bit as good as the originals and now I have 2 matched 4 ohm cabinets. Still hats off to the original idea now copied by every bass cabinet manufacturer around the world! There was nothing like this in the 70s except like the giant Acoustic 360 and a couple others. I don't believe anyone had designed a good long throw speaker at the time. And as far as power no one had designed anything 500 and up that didn't weigh 2 tons. Even my QRS is heavy. I just pocked up a Carvin BX500 that doesn't weigh more than a cigar box. It's got 2 different banks of EQ and 2 speakon combination output jacks that also use TRS jacks as well. Ot also has this little button in the back that says 2 ohm/4ohm. With both of my 4 ohm cabs I select 2 ohms. Which gives me the 500 watts. This is the second from the smallest in the BX series. I believe they go up to 2000 watts. This 500 watt amp sounds as loud as the QRS which when bridged is supposed to be 1800 watts. there are a lot of great 4-10 cabs out there and tons of great amps but I feel SWR pioneered this development . By the way with my new NEO speakers! Very light!

    Best Single Cabinet

    By 

    from Grand Rapids, M.I.

    Comments about SWR Goliath IV 4X10 Bass Speaker Cabinet:

    I"m on my second one and have been playing these for 10 years. I use an Alembic FX-1 tube preamp and Carvin power amp with it. It is THE best rig I"ve ever heard and I get compliments on it all the time.The only negative thing I can say is that I've had to replace all of the dust caps. I did store it in a garage in Michigan winters, so who knows? This is the best mid sized cabinet out there. I say this because I really love the Mega Goliath, just don't want to haul a refridgerator. I have also heard from drummers that they prefer the side throw of this cabinet over any other and I have had countless guitar players rave about it's tone .

    Enough punch to knock Muhammed Ali out!

    Comments about SWR Goliath IV 4X10 Bass Speaker Cabinet:

    I own the Goliath III 8 ohm, made before SWR was bought out by Fender, and i gotta say this cab is awesome! i originally had it hooked up to a SWR SM-400 but it broke down, and ive been wiring my hartke combo amp through it and this cabinet has TONS upon TONS of punch and low end! i mean this thing CUTS through. i hook a fender jazz bass up to and it adds tons of mid-range to my sound, i dont think i could play without it!

    powerful!!

    By 

    from Fort Collins, CO

    Comments about SWR Goliath IV 4X10 Bass Speaker Cabinet:

    This cab is amazing. so much that i've only used half of what it can handle. great tone very rugged and beautiful. i'm powering the 4 ohm version with a shuttle 6.0 genz benz amp, these two combined give out a lot of boom. i play with it at church. its sad having so much power and not being able to use it. you know how old people get. complaints do not only come from senior citizens at my church, my band members tell me to turn it down a bit because they "cant hear themselves". i recommend this for everybody out there, but do take in consideration if all this power is for you.

    Absolutely killer

    By 

    from Virginia Beach, Virginia

    Comments about SWR Goliath IV 4X10 Bass Speaker Cabinet:

    I bought one of these to replace an Ampeg B Series cabinet I had been playing through for a couple of years. I went ahead an purchased this without ever playing through it, as SWR cabinets have a good reputation. As soon as I the first note, I was floored by how awesome it sounded. It is plenty loud, and has a great tone. This would be especially good for rock and metal bassists, as it has good crunch in the low end, without sacrificing clarity of the highs. I play it with a Genz Benz 750, and Spector basses and couldn't be more pleased.

    SWR Goliath III 4 Ohm

    By 

    from NEW York City

    Comments about SWR Goliath IV 4X10 Bass Speaker Cabinet:

    I have a SWR Goliath III 4 ohm version which I use in stereo mode with my swr sm 900 along with a swr son of Bertha 4 ohm version. The Goliath III responds well no matter what I throw at it. The tweeter brings out the highs fro slapping on the bass I highly recommend this cab.

    SWR Goliath IV is great

    By 

    from I live in West Virginia

    Comments about SWR Goliath IV 4X10 Bass Speaker Cabinet:

    I have played bass fot over 40 yrs and have owned every brand of speakers that has been out there, and I have never used a cab so small that has so much bottom and top end all at the same time. It is hard to believe that so much sound comes out of that 4 X 10 cab. It is worth every dollar I payed for it. If I ever need another speaker it will be a SWR Goliath IV.
