    Is an SVT PRO 7 good on a Hartke 410 hydrive? I want to know if the ohms match. I already have and svt pro 7 and I'm looking into buying the hydrive. Is this a good match. I'm not tech savvy
    so please let me know before I buy it. I've heard that the ohms do not match. I've also heard that its better to get a cabinet with less wattage.Thanks.:bassist:

    I'm not sure where you are getting your information from, but if I were you, I'd stop using that source. The Hartke hydrive 410 would match very well with an SVT-7 based on technical specifications. The SVT-7 can run at 4 or 8 ohms and puts out 600watts and 1000 watts respectively, the Hartke Hydrive is 8ohms and can handle 1000 watts. So to answer your question, they will be a good match as far as impedance goes. As far as how they sound together, I can comment on that because I have never heard them together. I would recommend trying out a few different cabs with the 7Pro to see what works best for you. I use my 7pro with an Ampeg 810e and it sounds killer.

    You cant under power a speaker if thats what your asking.
    Like stated, Your amp will run at 4 or 8 ohms, The hydrive is 8ohms so your fine there.

    The SVT is only 1000 watts into a 4ohm load, so you would need two Hydrive 410s to see the 1000 watts. The 600 watts into a any cab is enough to pop the speakers if your not careful.

    Dont.

    Get the 410. If you like the sound. Add a second 410.

    That makes me a little nervous. I play at local bars. Like the size of Hooters. Maybe even smaller than that. You know what a Hooters is, right? You think I'll need something that big? I should slap myself for even thinking of getting the 115. You tell me man. I can play but I'm not a sound expert.

    If you dont need a second 410 then you certainly dont need the 15 which will probably do little for your tone other then put the 10s up closer to your ears
