I was wondering, how are the lows on the Ampeg SVT 410HLF?
Like the voice of God, I have that cab and I just love it... It has more lows than the 810SVT, I haven't cheked the specs on other brands amps, but for ampegs, that the better to get low.
how about for 5 strings, i failed to mention that so for my low B?
I've tried at high volumes with the SVT3-Pro, and had no problems with it... practically is good enough to handle any 5 string bass at any volume.
I have one. It handles my low B on my Cirrus 5 beautifully. I am totally happy with this cab. I would highly recommend it.
I am running mine with an SVT 4 Pro mono bridged into it.
In the next month or so I will be adding another 410 HLF. Then I should really be able to shake the house down.
no no no, you got it all wrong. don't worry yourself with an ampeg cab. there will always be a better sounding one out there the next day you play cabs after you buy it. just buy once and buy right, get the SWR Megoliath. you know you want it.
No you see, financially i don't want to use a whole lot of money, and so, i decided on something more affordable. Secondly, i don't want SWR. It's either Mesa or Ampeg, but considering we're talkin 410 cabs, the Mesa 410 can't handle the low B as well.
I run my 410 hlf with a SWR 4004, and I couldn't be happier with the lows... I have a MIM Jazz 5str, and it handles the B wonderfully... I think the cab is more than worth the money...
What do you guys think, so that i can save some sort of money and not spend huge loads of cash on a rig. An Ampeg SVT III Pro and SVT 410HLF or maybe a Hartke 4100 Series Cab and Hartke 4000 head? Supposedly, that cab can also handle lows real well. Also, how is the SVT III Pro? I hear people say it really doesn't put out as many watts as it's rated. What do you guys think, do you guys like it?
Or maybe try an Ampeg 6x10. I much prefer the Mesa to the Ampeg for low end...but Ampeg is way cheaper!
personally i don't like the ampeg svt 3 pro too much. i used to have one but i sold it. i prefer the swr sm 400s i'm using now. back to the original questio, the ampeg 410 hlf is a really really good cab. i'm in the market for a 4x10 cab too, and the 410 hlf is one of the cabs i'm really considering. i tried one and i think that it's great!
NONONO.. don't get the svt3-PRO.. get the svp-Pro and a poweramp... its cheaper... its more powerful, depending on the poweramp you buy, and if you get a small poweramp, its upgradeable...
I know i say this way too much.. but i can't stand to see people shelling out more money for less stuff by buying integrated heads.
At least look into it.. an SVP-Pro and a decent sized poweramp, try carvin... you'll prob have enough money left over for a small rack case to hold it all...
I just have a question to add. I just ordered the SVT 410HE as an extension cab for my Ampeg B2 combo....how different are the sound characteristics from the HE to the HLF. I would have ordered it but I needed 8 ohm
good call. Maybe Crown poweramps, they're supposedly pretty good and like not much more than the Carvin. But i'm gonna wait awhile and see if i join a new band, or what not, or when i do it, and just other things. I might end up having more money at that point and decide to get an SVT 4 Pro or SVT 2 Pro. Or Mesa, who knows.
i could understand the svt 2 pro because it's all tube, and some people are into that, and mesa doesn't make a pre, but why get the svt4??
As far as i know, its the same as the 3 with a bigger poweramp, and hence the same as the SVP with a crown, or carvin, or in my case mackie...
maybe the 4 has things like bridging and stereo possibilities, but most poweramps have that built in..
oh and pyro... ampeg normally makes sealed cabinets.. which means they're punchier and have better high ends, but they lack in the bass area... the hlf has 2 seperate compartmants inside, the top 2 10's are sealed and the bottom 2 are ported... ported means higher power handling, and better bass response... the 410 HE's have 2 sepreate 210 compartments inside, but they're both sealed. This means punchier bass.. but not as rumbly...
Exactly what i was going to say!
the svt3pro is indeed awesome, but it doesnt put out as many watts as it should/ says it does.
i would get a carvin either DCM1000 or DCM600 and a nice preamp. SVP-PRO or Interstellar Overdrive ( SWR ) , Eden Navigator, etc.
