    I know one of the bass amp standards is the Ampeg Classic head paired up with an Ampeg 810 cab but I'm trying to get similar sound with a smaller cab. Right now I am running an Ampeg classic head through 2, 410 SWR workingman cabs (Impedance is 8 ohms so I have to run both cabinets to achieve a 4 ohm impedance). I'm not getting the Ampeg 810 purely because of the pain of lugging it around, not because of the cost. I'm looking to buy a used cab in the 400-700 price range. What 410 cabs would sound good with my Ampeg Classic head?

    Thanks!

    Also, what are the major sound differences in the Ampeg PN-410HLF and the SVT 410hlf? I understand that the SVT was created to sound great with the SVT-Cl but I'm wondering how the PN will sound

    Well I use for one of my rigs a pn410 paired with a 7 pro,and for the other a heritage svt paired with a pn 210/115.......these type of cabs are very evenly balanced and clear sounding......no mud....

    How's the low end of the pn410 compared to the svt410? Clear sounding with no mud would be great for me. I'm sure it would sound great with the grit from the svt-cl

    From what I've heard the 410 hlf has a very deep low end........

    It does. Gigantic, about as low as it gets. Except for the PN115hlf, the PN cabs would be more up fsbassist's alley, judging from their frequency responses. Not played them, but the description I've heard is "Sounds like Ampeg only a little cleaner." Not the cheapest cabs on the market and way out of his price range for two, but since he asked...
