    Just curious if I ever decide to downsize a little from my SVT-410HLF cab to a 2x10.
    I've officially played 4 gigs with my current setup (Ampeg BA500 combo + SVT-410HLF cab = 500 watts @ 2 ohms). Two venues were semi-large and two were medium sized...and I'm blowing away the other 4 guys with my volume at 2. The medium sized venue I even ran clean and not through the PA.

    I can barely fit the 4x10 cab in my car as it is, and I think I've come to the conclusion that I have more power than I need...which is a first :meh:

    My question is, did Ampeg ever have a 4 ohm 2x10 cab, and if so what the model was? I don't remember seeing anything in their current lineup. Not looking for anything other than Ampeg and really just looking for curiosity sake for now.

    Thanks!

    I used that BA500 with an SVT18. Loud for sure. Ampeg made model BXT210M, 2x10, 4 ohms. It was shaped like a monitor, great cab, had one of those too, but it's all gone now.

    I do remember that monitor shaped cab now that you mention it. Probably be like finding a needle in a haystack trying to locate one of those on the used market these days :(

    i have an SVT210HE in which I replaced the speakers with two 8 ohm in parallel so it is now 4 ohms. also disconnected the tweeter, beefed up the internal bracing, and added t-nuts to the speaker mounting holes. much improved over stock IMO. i did it so i could run it with my 410hlf which i no longer own, so i dont need this cab anymore. PM me if you're interested. its mint.

    Thanks, I'll keep that in mind :)

    In the meantime I may have to keep an eye out for one of those BXT210M's since it seems as though that might be the closest thing I get to a production Ampeg 2x10 4 ohmer

    If I were the OP, I'd get on this. I've been using a pair of SVT210HEs for a decade now. Very reliable and great sounding cabs.

    FWIW, you'll also be adding rear ports with an SVT210HE. IME, drummers love that.
     
  9. Port location means absolutely nothing - the lows that come them are Omni-directional.

    But........if it makes them feel better ;)

    I never said we could count on drummers to give good information...or understand physics...or count any higher than 4... ;)
     
  11. He could even tell the drummer "I modified the cab, just for you" :D
     
  12. Yes I have one, it is the wedge shaped monitor can they made... BXT210M 400watts
