SVT-410HLF Without Markings
Just curious if there are such things as SVT-410HLF knock-offs or not.
I bought this cab a few months ago and have gigged with it several times. Sounds great. Not sure why, but I looked for some info on the rear input panel...and it's completely blank. The cab was so obviously a 410HLF when I bought it that I didn't pay much attention to the rear panel and didn't really care the age because it was essentially pristine. Now it's beginning to irritate me by its absence. Inputs and horn dial are correct and the attenuation is labeled. Just looks like someone either removed the label or printing and painted the panel black.
Should I be concerned or am I just paranoid?

The sticker was not even attached on my same model cab when I bought it. Found it loose in the cardboard box...

There is no real business in making 410hlf knockoffs that I know of, so I wouldn't sweat it personally. Could have been removed or not attached like Alexander's.

The rear plate would have originally had a sticker on it that is fairly easy to remove (if you wanted to).
If you are curious enough, you can unscrew the rear plate and inspect the circuit board for relevant markings - like "Ampeg" or SLM (Ampeg's former parent company) or "Loud" (current parent company).
If you want to pull a speaker to check for it's authenticity, an original should have an Eminence date code that starts with 67-(the next two digits will be the year it was made) and if it is original, it should also have this Ampeg part number on it: 86-510-04

Must be time to renew your support?

Yes - I forgot I got an email about that

Thanks for the reassurance, guys. Love the sound of a low B through that cab.
Another question: do you think it would couple well with an 810 even though the 410 is ported and the 810 is not? Or is it a waste of time? Not sure the venue is big enough to need both, but I'm curious if anyone has experience with this. I've never tried playing both my cabs as a stack and thought it might be fun to see if I could get my hair to blow.

They are very different designs with different strengths and properties. The world will not come to an end if you try it but the result might be less than the sum of its parts...
Many (most?) on TB will prefer the 810 to one or even two HLF cabs. I feel the opposite and the HLF fits MY basses, amps and more importantly, band and songs like a glove.
No mud, woofiness or lack of clarity. The 810 does a good job to, but I have to tweak the tone controls etc. more to get the tone I want.
