    Hey Jimmy...question for you....I decided to go bigger cab to match my V4bh 100w head.....So, here's my 2 choices without hearing them though. ..buying through AMS on 8 pay deal....810e. 610 or 410HLF....which one really brings out best in this head?

    PS weight is not an issue on any cabs...This is for garage band fun
    Thx

    I'm not Jimmy, but the first two will work better than the 410HLF.

    From my reading jimmy really likes the heritage 810 and the old flatback 810s. No ampeg cab is bad though..they all sound good. Sorry I chimed in jimmy..take it away!!!

    I'm no JimmyM, but the 810e will sound more "traditional" and IMO match best with that head. The 610 and 410 will not only be quieter based on less speaker area, but will be harder to hear because they are more scooped and aren't as close to your ears.
    The V4B was made for a cool vintage, grindy vibe. I think the 810e will complement that in the best way possible.

    If those are your only three options, I would go with the 810e, 11 out of 10 times.

    And no I am not a JimmyM, but I play one on TV. :D

    I use an Eden 212 xst but I feel more speaker area would help bring out best of this amp

    I'm not JimmyM but I bet I know what he'll suggest - 810e all the way:D.

    Go with 2 x 410HE.....that way you can use that head with 1 cab or 2.

    If cost and moving really isn't an issue, why go with 6 when you can have 8? You want a wall of sound and speakers elevated higher is better.

    The 410HLF is too LF as a stand alone for my needs.

    No.

    :D

    Anyway, yeah, they're right...give me the choice and I pick the 810e every time. Heritage if you can swing it. The 610hlf and 410hlf are good cabs but they go too low for my tastes. Not saying they won't work, but you did ask me what I would get.

    Ok thanks everyone! Is there a big difference with heritage vs 810 non?

    It's not a giant difference, but there is some. The Heritage sounds a lot more like the old first edition flatback SVT 810's with the CTS alnico speakers, whereas the regular models are very good sounding cabs but not quite in that league.

    I heard the V4B last week through one of those 212 bottoms and it sounded excellent.
