    Hi there,

    I recently bought an Ampeg SVT7Pro with a closed 4X12 Ampeg cabinet. When I tried it out in the store I liked it a lot, but adding a 1x15 Ampeg box made the sound so much more well rounded, I knew I would have to get one as soon as possible.

    Half a year ago could have had it for about 550,- EUR but did not want to buy it on credit, today it would set me back 800,-. Thanks Mr. Draghi, good job...

    But seriously: Can you please give me your thoughts on affordable 1x15 cabinets?

    I mostly play Rock in a band that tunes to Drop C. My bass is an older Dingwall Afterburner. In my tone I look for clarity and articulation more than anything else.

    Do you have a suggestions for (preferably cheaper) alternatives to the Ampeg SVT 1x15?

    Thanks

    Build a TL606 cabinet. Google and you will find plans.

    Many companies have based their cabinets on this classic design.
     
  3. There will be a lot of recommendations to skip the 1x15 (see any threads with the title mixing cabinets for the science). Cheaper? I'd say any Peavey 1x15 cabinet will do the trick.

    Is your Ampeg cab a guitar cab? I know they made those.

    If it is a guitar cab, ditch it because that is why you are getting no lows.
