Hello folks, This weekend I will be heading to some music shops out of town to try out some cabs, but I figured I would see if there is any general consensus between these two cabinents. Both seem to be regarded pretty well. I can get the Hartke BXL-115 for $300 and the Ampeg SVT-15E for $400. Is the Ampeg worth another $100 over the Hartke? How about the quality of each of these cabs? Any downsides? I play four string fretless (Fender Jazz), so they don't need to go incredibly deep, but I do want to hear the fundamental. From the specs, looks like either will do that ok, though I noticed the low end of the Hartke seems to be incredibly deep (something like 30hz) - which I'm assuming is at -10db, because otherwise that would be exceptional, especially for a cab in this price range. Any suggestions? I've heard of several problems with the Hartke aluminium cone speakers, but I've heard good things as well. My gut tells me, before playing anything, that the Ampeg is the way to go (seeing as I liked my Crate BX-100 that I used to own), but if there is little difference between the two cabs then I would rather save the $100. My setup for an amp will be DI box into a small mixer. From mixer, I'm going to a 5 band parametric EQ and then into a poweramp (ART SLA-1 studio amp at 260 watts). Pretty low power...mainly just looking for the Crate tone I had, but a little clearer on the top end, deeper and punchier on the bottom. And a little louder of course. Nothing too extravagant. Thank you in advance for your help everyone. P.S. I've looked into Avatar a little, but the specs on them don't impress me too much. They seem like decent enough speakers, but their 15's just don't seem all that impressive (especially in the low end, which is the most essential part of a 15 to me). So that's why I'm not going with them - and also the whole not being able to try before you buy thing.
