    I'm gonna guess that 8 speakers designed to be in a 6 speaker cabinet will cause mismatched impedance... no?

    Just get the Bergie. Lighter. Smaller. Tighter and more pronounced low end. Easier to move. Just as loud if not louder.

    +1. I don't miss my Ampeg 810.
     
  6. I've owned both the ampeg 810e and the Bergantino NV610. As you can see in my profile I prefer the Bergantino. It's lighter and more compact. It also has a much tighter tone to it. I can't really compare volumes because my amps haven't remained the same for both cabinets. After I get my Peavey Classic 400, I'll know how loud this cabinet can go. It wouldn't make much sense to spend all that money to replace the speakers in the ampeg. If you don't like the cabinet, then you need to find something that you do like. I don't think you could go wrong with the NV610 though.

    the Bergantino is actually loaded with 24 ohm speakers to make a perfect 4 ohm total load. Eight of those would give you a 12 ohm cabinet
