    do you think dual pf15he's will be able to handle a svt classic 300 tube head without blowing?

    I gigged for years with an SVT head and a pair of TL606 cabinets I built with EV SRO 15's in them (the big coffee can ones.) Never had a problem and they worked well. The PF's are probably better speakers for bass than my old SRO's.

    There is also the SVT-212AV cabinet to consider. 66lbs.

    Yep, I did it. Too much 500-800 hz midrange for me. The PF500 played nicer with them imo/ime.

    just keep in mind that the PF15HE's are 8ohm cabs, and I don't think SVT's are tapped for other than 2 and 4ohm loads. So, you would have to run at least 2 PF115HE's to get to the 4ohms.

    Power handling on these cabs is 450w (8ohms), so unless you dimed the SVT, it would probably work fine (other than the ohm issue). 2 115HE's would be totally fine and probably sound pretty good.

    I use a PF500/115HE rig for rehearsal and it is quite a nice sounding rehearsal rig.

    Aren't 500-800hz frequencies ideal to get a good growly sound ?

    Depends on your definition of it. To some, too much makes it too aggressive.

    The mid output of the SVT might like the pf210's if you're looking for some ying/yang action with amp and cab. The 210's to me sound a bit deeper, more low thump and a bit less mids. Might come out about right with that amp.

    A word though, you might find yourself needing to leave the tweeter on its lowest setting to "finish out" the sound a bit as the cones don't seem to have much for uppermids/top. I guess it all depends on what you're going for in tone. The pf210's sound pretty dang beefy for a 210 cab. Running any more than two of those cabs and your drums would have to be amplified, even with a heavy hitter, or you'll drown out the kick.
