Sealed or Ported Cab for my SVT II (Non Pro) amp?
Trying to find a good (smaller) cab for my Ampeg SVT II. I know that a "good" cab choice is very subjective but would like a little guidance as I begin my search. So, ported or non ported (non ported options seem limited). I use a 5 string so Low B is in the mix.
The tone I am trying to achieve is; Tight, Round/Focused, yet Big, Warm, and some Color/Grit. I have attached a link of Bruno Mars and his bass player has the exact tone I am looking for. The music is not my style but the funky bass line is.
I am guessing there is compression and some other processing involved for recording but the live version of the song sounds almost identical (a little more grit). This dude can play
Please, any positive suggestions would be great
My tube amps all seem to sound better to me through a ported cab. But, I have a Bergantino NV610 and am keeping my eyes peeled for a vintage Ampeg 810, so I can't help you in the "smaller" department. :-)
I've been a fan of ported cabs since I built one of the first EVM-15L/TL-606 prototypes in the early 70s. It was a killer little compact rig for 4 string. LF extension was designed around the limits of a 4-string, so it won't help you with a fiver.
Just get a cab that sounds good to you and that's all that matters. Ported, sealed, sauteed...whatever.
