    alright so i'm currently running an ampeg svt-4 pro with a set of dual ampeg 810e's. i like the 810e's just fine (love em actually) but stopped by a local store and ran smack into a mesa powerhouse 1200. i tested it out and loved it, mind you it was set up with an ampeg svt 2 pro and i was test playing it with an older model ibanez srx (similar to one i own). i was just wondering if anyone could tell me of their own personal experiences with these cabs. and whether its worth the switch.

    In my old bad, I had a 810e and the band space, and a powerhouse 1200 road ready at home (4x10 1x15). I liked the mesa a lot more imo. Sturdier, punchier, and looks cool. I do play through a mesa BB750 though. It all depends I guess on what your ears tell you though

    A/B the two and decide for yourself

    The 1200 will be a lot louder at the same amp settings, and have a lot more true bottom end, and top end past 4k. More modern sounding.
