HIWATT 4X10 & 1X15 COMBINED SPEAKER CABINET and svt-cl 300w question.
My friend got a deal with the ampeg svt-cl 300w head and thinking of using the combined Hiwatt cab. Can he get the full power of this amp since it's rated 2/4ohm and the hiwatt is 8ohm. Is it possible to get 4ohm load for 4x10 and the 1x15 separately? There isnt much info on the hiwatt webpage about the cab.
One. I would NOT use an 8 Ohm cab with an SVT.
Two. Any cab that mixes full range drivers like four 10's and a 15 (or any other drivers with out using some sort of crossover/filtering) is junk.
Find a good cab to use your SVT with.
+1, though I think what he meant is do NOT use an 8 ohm cab with that amp.
You want either a 2 or 4 ohm load, always.
Search here on mixing a 410 with a 115. Bottom line, it's not a good pairing at all.
Look for a good 4 ohm 8x10. That's an ideal cab for that amp. Or a pair of 4x10's would also work well.
This HIWATT PDF is in Spanish, (I think)http://www.arcoirismusic.com/ftp/doc...fas/Hiwatt.pdf but it seems to be claiming that model cab was available with either Fane or Celestian speakers, and in a 4 ohm combined-load model...
Got a chance to fiddle with the cab and indeed it is a combined load of 4 ohms. The cab was going through Gallien-Krueger MB150E-112III 150W MicroBass Combo amp I have to say it
sounded amazing. I know that there is a lot of discussion about this but the cab sounded massive yet balanced.
right; the principle is that a good identical pair of cabs of equivalent size and quality will sound better, but if the stack you have sounds good, it sounds good.
as long as they're both 8Ω and you set the amp to 4Ω nothing will get blown up at least.
As far as the 4x10 and 1x15 combo goes, do what you want, my main cab for the past 8 years has been an Ampeg SVT-1540he which is a 4x10/1x15 combo and it destroys every cabinet I've tried
