Ampeg svt 610hlf versatility?
I'm on the verge of purchasing my first cab, a ampeg svt 610hlf and I need to know how versatile it is.
I want to be able to play things from the beatles (early and later tunes), some country, show tunes, and metal ( parkway drive, vildhjarta, the safety fire)
Thanks in advance for any info
Versatility comes from you, bro.
Well, the horn has an adjustable L pad. That's pretty much all you need. It's a little big for coffee house gigs tho.
From Ampeg's website:
"This is the speaker cabinet for the bass player who demands the best of both worlds—deep, tight bass, with a generous helping of definition and top-end clarity. The SVT-610HLF delivers massive bass, thanks to six 10” speakers that work together to move a tremendous amount of air. You’d need three 18” or four 15” speakers to move as much air as the SVT-610HLF! And they simply wouldn’t be able to respond to transient peaks as quickly as our tens."
"The SVT-610HLF also delivers superb top end, thanks to its 1” horn driver, strategically crossed over at 5kHz. The Ampeg SVT-610HLF is the ideal speaker enclosure for the modern multi-string bass player seeking superior power handling capability and true high-fidelity performance."

I don't have a 610 but I use an Ampeg 410HLF almost every week and it's a really nice cab.
I actually saw a cat using one of these yesterday at a fest. I'd heard that the bass response on the 610 was pretty insane and I was unlucky enough to have it proven to me in the flesh. Dude thought his bass register was the coolest thing ever and he just melted his band in a cloud of dark farts by juking up the low end on his SVT. Luckily the band were wretched so I didn't feel too bad for them.
I'd guarantee that this cab is super versatile. I've always heard good things about it, but I can now guarantee that it certainly possesses the ability to put out about twice as much low end as you would ever need.
show tunes and metal, huh?
+1 to the "versatility" coming from the player, not the cab.
to me a "versatile" cab would be a matched pair of smaller cabs, so i could use one for the "show tunes" gigs and both for the "metal" gigs. (that's why i use two compact LDS single 15 cabs.)
That's what I mean when I say "versatility comes from the player." A good player would have gotten a good sound with it and figured out a way to minimize the mud.
Thanks for the input guys!!!!
Because it was a smaller outdoor festival stage I dare say the poor sound guy couldn't actually pull him any further out of the mix and had to let the crowd have his appalling stage tone and volume.
