GK MB500 & Ampeg PF Cab
Hi Guys this week i bought the GK MB500 and im wondering if its possible to run it in a single Ampeg PF cab as the PF210HE.
i understand tha the ampeg is an 8ohms cab and its clear for me if the MB500 can run with a single 8ohms
what do you think or know ???
and what about the sound mix between these two .....
Sure it's possible. The cables will connect them. Just depends on if you like the combination yourself for what sound you're after. That head puts out a huge amount of bottom end, and that cab isn't really known for big bass response. If you dial everything on the GK way back you can get a nice old school sound with that head and cab but you won't be blasting down walls. What kind of stuff are you playing? Do you need to be heard with a band? In what kind of venues or practice spaces?
I got an alternative metal band.
I was interesting in the PF series due to the portable features.
and i was worry about the Sound Mix between those two brands and whtas its more like a new field for me the Ohms Amps and Cabs. i dont wont to cause a failure in the amp connecting a wrong ohms cab..
As long as the total impedance of your cab load doesn't go below 4 ohms, then you are cool. That means an 8 ohm cab + a 4 ohm cab is out (2.67 ohms), but one 8 ohm cab is just fine. So are two 8 ohm cabs or one 4 ohm cab.
No trouble running at 8 ohms with the amp head. The MB500 outputs 350 watts rms at 8 ohms and the cab is "rated" at 450 watts max rms so you should have no trouble with blowing speakers if you crank it. If it will be loud enough or have the tone you want? Maybe or maybe not. 30 day return on the cab if it doesn't do what you want?
Usually G-K heads and Ampeg cabs play very well together.
I run my G.K. MB2-500 head into my Ampeg PF115HE cabinet all the time for rehearsals/small gigs.
(Actually much prefer the G.K. over the PF-500 head that came with the cabinet into this cabinet!)
Kind of a yin-yang type of thing going on to my ears.
The G.K.'s brightness with it's extended EQ.......the PF-115HE's sealed cabinet low end firmness and the 15" driver slightly rounding off the highs.......I love it!
Two draw backs of the PF series of cabinets...
1...They are VERY directional.
2...Just don't expect to play loud-loud with a single PF cabinet.
what about to run into the PF210he ??
so argument that this cab does not bring low punch
I think it has plenty of low punch. All those Portaflex cabs have pretty big lows.
How loud is your drummer, and what sort of stack does the guitarist run?
The head and cab are both good products, and the head has very flexible EQ. I don't think you'll have trouble getting a tone you like.
My only concern would be that two 10's doesn't seem like a lot of cone area for metal. A pair of those cabs stacked, would make more sense to me.
Would agree with the pair of cabs, but it'll raise a pretty decent ruckus. For a 210, it takes a pounding.
So, its good....
on the other hand one detail that maybe I avoided is that i live an apartment and i think that i will not be other a quart of power or less power of the MB500, and thats why i would like to have a PortaFlex there... and also it can be versatility for the Small Rigs...
My Drummer is a Big power one..
