Can one add caster wheels to a Ht412 cabinet? Is this frowned upon? can it damage cab? I heard it could the bass response of amp. I'm wondering if anyone has done this.
Thanks

I don't know if there's any technical reason not to add castors to the cab, but the bass response is likely to be affected simply because you'll be lifting it off the floor. If it were me, I'd make up a 'skateboard' the same size as your cab - just 4 castors on a flat piece of wood. That way you can roll your cab into place, then slide it onto the floor to play.

Also means if your stage isn't perfectly level, your cab won't roll away halfway through your big solo!

I put casters in my HT20 combo. You'll need to get casters that would match the weight of your cab. Bass was reduced, which for me is a good thing.
