Ampeg 9 x 10?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Gallient Knight, Sep 24, 2001.

  1. Ebay has a listing for a 9 x10 cab. Anyone know if this is designed for guitar or bass? Anyone ever play one?

    It is an old Ampeg design for Bass Amplification.
  3. I played on a borrowed one during rehearsals a few years ago (drummer's room-mate). At the time I didn't think that it sounded any better (or different really) than the 8x10 I had at the time and was heavier and harder to move. The 8-10 just fits through a doorway tilted back... this one didn't quite fit and had to be carried on it's side.

    I still wanted one though for "cool factor"....

    "Why not just get an 8x10?"

    "...This one's got nine."
  5. I'll buy one when they get to 11

    The 9-10 cab was designed to go with the Ampeg V-9 head which is basically an SVT for guitar...has reverb, distortion :eek:.

    I saw a fresh in the box NOS V9 head for sale on eBay not long ago. They are MUCH rarer than SVT heads but for whatever reason usually sell for much less.

    As for the cab, I'm not sure what the diffs are between the V9 and SVT cabs. Obviously the SVT design of four sealed sections e ach housing 2 of the speakers isn't possible. No idea how it compares to a normal SVT bottom.

    By the way, the 9-10 is not the biggest Ampeg cabinet. That prize goes to some 32-10" :eek: boxes that were custom built for Jeff Pilson of Dokken. Last I heard those cabs belong to a Japanese collector.
  7. Personally i think the cab on the photo will sound like poo.. just take a good look at it.. the speakers are way too close to eachother, and the front is all speakers and ports...
  8. well that's a stupid little cab, personally I'm not crazy about 8x10s either.

    8x10s rule man!
  10. Any amp maker that sells an 8x10 should also have a temp agency that will roadie the cab around for you.
  11. I'm definately a big fan of 8x10s.
  12. I go for 2 4x10 's instead of a 8x10

    one to my left, one to my right, smack them MIM J, and the sound is bright, cha cha cha :D
  13. I like 2x15s and 3 or 2x10s, got to keep my lows pronounced.
  14. :D
