Ampeg Cab Setup Opinion

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by SVTDOUBLEBUCK, Oct 2, 2009.

  1. 410HE on top of the 115E

  2. 115E on top of the 410HE

  3. Carrots on top of roots

  4. Roots on top of carrots

  1. Alright so I have an all ampeg setup in which I love a lot! I have a 4-pro, paired with an ampeg 410HE, and a 115E cabinet, obviously both are 8 ohms, now my question is how would you stack them? I normally put the fifteen on the bottom, and the 410 on top, because thats how I've always seen bass players with this combination do. But the 410 is obviously larger, and looks kinda funny on the fifteen, do any TB'ers put the fifteen on top of the 410? Or keep the fifteen on the bottom? I eventually would like to get rid of the 15 and get another 410he, to move some more air around. But what would you guys recommend and why?

    It probably doesn't matter as they most likely cover similar frequencies. The 410 might put out more lows than the 15 though.

    i would think that the 4x10 is the louder (i.e. more SPL) of the two cabs, so i would put the 15 cab up top, closer to ear level, so you can hear it. but actually, i wouldn't use the 15 with it at all, as its going to get the same power to its single 15 as all four of the 10's.

    Convention is to stack the 4x10 on top of the 1x15. That's the way it's typically done/seen. Although I think it would be interesting to try out the opposite. Certainly no harm in trying both ways and seeing which one appeals to you more. I remember seeing some Epifani NAMM video in which they have been recommending the 1x15 on top/2x10 on bottom configuration. The 4x10 on top/1x15 on bottom configuration probably stems from PA system setups.

    Yeah, another 410 will serve you better.
  8. Get 2 410HE
  9. I run a SWR stack with a 115 on top of a 410 and i love the sound as opposed to the opposite. You can feel the bass a lot better and it sounds a lot bassier to. By the way id keep the 115 don't trade it in for another 410 I tried that and theirs just no comparison.

    UP Untell this week i was running and SWR Goliath III 410 and SOB 115 With The 115 On the Bottom....IMHO I think it looked beeter have the bigger speaker on the bottom....and for the fact that the 115 did not have as low of Frequency Rating was all the more reason to put it on the bottom to get it to couple with the stage and extend the Low Frequencies of it better!!!!...But yeah Just this Week I went and bought a New SWR Goliath IV 410 and yeah it is on the bottom....and well I love The 810's Way Better the the 410/115 setup!!! ...Thats My 2 Cents worth!!! Cheers Mate!!!
