    In the 80's, I did similar to that with a V4B and 810, but I popped the ultra-hi instead of the ultra-low. Popping the ultra-low results in a pretty drastic cut at 600hz and makes it sound too bassy for me. But I'm sure that tone works for some things, though I don't have much of a use for it. If I get any more fill-in 80's rock gigs, though, it'll probably come in handy.

    It's an article about how to eq. for a certain slice of a large field of music. Also pick specific. The SVT & P are capable of much more.

    SVT tone stacks are a blast to play with partly because of the multitude of settings, but in my mind the thing that makes them so fun is that they all sound amazing. It's pretty hard to make a Precision sound bad through an SVT.

    Knobs at 12:00, switches in the most neutral positions. Make small adjustments. Adjust so your bass tone knob gets you the right tones throughout its range. Sound amazing all night.

    I've never been a fan of the ultra switches, ditto the 810 cab, but don't come near my SVT head or I'll cut you.
