I seen a trace Elliot 1048h but it's 800 watts at 8 ohms with svt 7 600 watts at 8 ohms.
What do you guys suggest? We play rock music by the way!
I really like the Pro Neo 410-HLF with the 7Pro, and I think that just one of them works more than fine with the 7Pro. Here's a link to my 7Pro/PN-410HLF review from issue #7
That being said, the Pro Neo is going to be more clear and articulate than the SVT-810, so if you really wanted to nail that tone, then one of the other cabs mentioned above might be a better option. However, I found the PN-410HLF to be pretty flexible, and with a little EQ, it can get reasonably close to an SVT-810 tone. Of course, with a sealed cab, it's the "feel" that is really hard to emulate with a ported enclosure.
But still, the PN-410HLF makes a great dancing partner for the 7Pro, IME/IMHO. As always, YMMV.
