Ampeg PF-500 - PF410 vs. SVT410HE
So I'm looking at running a PF-500 through either a pf410 pre svt410he, I was wondering how they differ, and the tone produced, but most important how well they will handle drop tuning (down to A#).
I've used a 410he and 810e many times with a 5 or a Boss OC-2 octave pedal, and never had a problem getting a good signal out of a low B on the 5 or a low A on the OC-2. But the PF410hlf is tuned significantly lower. It's not quite as low tuned as the SVT 410hlf, which is huge crazy low-tuned, but it's very much in that ballpark. Some people are looking for those big lows, some aren't. I'm not, but you might like them.
Here are the specs for all of Ampeg's 4x10 cabinets :
You can see that the PF-410HLF is a more sensitive cabinet than the others and is not tuned to go as low. It also can handle quite a bit of power.
Those are the -3db frequency response quotes. The -10db quotes (usable low frequency), which is what everyone else in the business uses to quote frequency response, are:
PF-410hlf: 30 hz
PN-410hlf: 38 hz
SVT-410hlf: 28 hz
SVT-410he: 43 hz
