    guys,

    im really confused
    in the past few weeks

    i've tried

    Ampeg B2R - 350W at 4ohm
    SVT-200T- 350W at 4ohm
    SVT-350H- 350W at 4ohm

    my question is ..
    what's is the different between them? all of them are solid state ...

    does the casing on SVT's alter the tone and sound? or its just there for classical look?

    i also have a blackbeauty combo that also run - 350W at 4ohm

    and i notice that Ampeg's are much much much powerfull that the swr, with both same power rating on them ... any comment?

    I think the 350H is merely the "successor" to the 200T - I believe they're nearly identical in design and power.

    The bigger number makes it seem like the user is playing through a more powerful amp - maybe that's why they changed the name.

    I play an early 90s 200T through an Ampeg 410H and it sounds pretty good for a solid-state rig.

    yeah :)

    ok
    now narrow it down

    svt350-h and
    b2r

    both solid state 350W

    does the case design affect ?
     
  5. One and the same. The SVT-350H is just in a different box to make it look like an SVT.

    The 350T and B2R are almost the same inside as far as the circuits. The difference is the package, with minor internal circuit changes.

    One is a rack package, one is a "head" package. The construction is obviously somewhat different between them on account of that.

    As to why we don't call them something like B2R and B2H? Well, we just don't......

    The SVT-200T is not a current product.

    ok ...
    thanks..

    so if you put B2R on top of say SVT410HLF

    and SVT-350H on top of SVT410HLF

    they should produce similar tone, punch and power ... ?

    or are there any other side factors?

    I didn't detail check .....but general answer would be yes, they should be similar.

    ok

    does speakers define loudness ? ... or punch ?

    say you have this amp first on top of 410 ... then change to 610 ..

    does it just become louder? or punchier as well?

    I would say yes it would be louder and punchier, but there are other factors involved(ports, sealed, cab size)

    what a speaker does is move air, if there is more cone area then there is more air being moved - hence louded
