    I was wondering what you guys think of it and the reasons for either point of view.

    Thanks
     
  2. I heard taht it sounds like the ampeg 8x10 + a horn. But in my opinion, horns are a no no fro bass, so u can think what u want.

    I have one also, but after my FIRST gig last weekend, I realized that 450 watts just doesn't make it come alive. You're gonna need some juice to make it sing right. I'm currently looking to upgrade to either the SVT-CL or the 4-Pro...

    Mayby try the HLF410.
     
  6. I have both an 810 and a 610HLF.
    I find it to be a very close cousin to the 810.
    In some rooms it can be boomy, much more so then the 810.

    I made dense foam plugs for the vents which when utiilzed with the tweeter off, makes it fairly indistinguishable from the 810. The plugs/reduce/eliminate the boominess.

    I'm considering replacing my 810 with a 2nd 610HLF
     

  7. does that not damage the speakers because they were meant for a ported cab?
     
  8. Not according to the folks I consulted prior. They did warn against pumping more bass and volume into it to make up for the reduced bass from the cab. Other then that, no issues.
     
  9. yet 300 will ? :smug:

    i think i'm going to try the closing up the ports with foam. what kind did you use?

    i like my 610hlf. i dont think it sounds like my 8x10 did, but thats ok. its very bassy. but i guess thats what you get with a ported cab.

    No need to be a MEANY :D , you know good and well the CL is more powerful than the 3Pro...

    Whoa, man, chill. No need to be calling people dicks around here.

    The fact of the matter is, the -CL has 300 watts, and the -3Pro 450. The 450 is more powerful. Now, the CL may sound louder, of course, but that has no bearing on which is more powerful.

    Ok whatever, it sounds a lot better. There was no need for him to start with me, I said nothing to him, or against him. Only point I was making...

    "You are right and I am wrong" Are you satisfied now? Feel better about yourself?

    I suggest you read rule #1 in the TOS. No one "started anything with you." He suggested that the cl has less power than the -3Pro. And you called him a dick for it. See where the problem here lies?

    For what it's worth, I put 1600 watts into my SVT-610HLF. It can kill babies at a hundred yards. ;)
     
  19. Dense white used in packaging up heavy items in boxes. It's kind os "sealed" in that I couldn't pass air through the cells like you can with foam rubber and styrofoam.

    I can probably get you some if needed.
