    You really couldn't Wikipedia it or look at the page on the Ampeg website?

    Oh that makes total sense. :rolleyes:

    Reminds me of many years ago when I asked a hippie kid to remind me what the D in LSD stood for, and he gave me a condescending "duh you fool" look and said "aciD".

    The Wikipedia article stops in the 1970s...... not the most reliable source, although it references the Gregg Hopkins book.

    Wikipedia is often *somewhat less than perfect* as an information source

    This is what it means. SVT was designed by Bill Huges and gave Ampeg the ability to manufacture amps that could put out 300 watts, compared to the industry average of 100 watts at the time it was introduced in 1969.
