Ive been playin my ampeg 410hlf for a while now and it seems to be GREAT for solo work but now playing more and more shows (metal music btw) it just seems that in a band mix, the cab is just too low to not blend with the bass drum. Thats why im considering the 610hlf. Its not as low but its still ported. Over time ive found myself going from a smile on the graphic eq to a grin. I like the grin. Ive also come off the bass knob alot too and it mixes well. I realize that most people would prefer the bergantino nv610 for or just go all out with an ampeg 810, but my sound is a little different as in, i like to be thick in the bass and have treble up enough to utilize the horn and make a sound similar to -dont laugh- fieldy from korn (just NOT AS clanky). His bass alone makes people know what band it is instantly and that sort of "signature" sound is fading for bassists in heavy bands today. Anyways, i understand how non-ported cabs sound which is awesome... For the music that its used for, but not for what i play most of the time. At home practicing theory and scales, chords and such, i do use that more mid sound but just not in the band. So what im gettin at is, who has anything good to say about the 610hlf? Or anything relevant for that matter. Anyone know of a deep-ish ported 810? Any other deep-y 610? (Example of non relevant post: ampeg sucks. You just want the name.) thanks for any knowledge i may procure from this thread!
