Ampeg Heritage SVT-410HLF 2011 Bass Cabinet (500 Watts, 4x10") Opinions?

  1. I need a cab I can put on a plane (weight limit 100 lbs) and bring out here to Peru to stay and want at least a 410 cab to match a 70's SVT head which means it has to be a 4 ohm cab. This weighs 76 lbs which is that bad. The regular 410 HLF weighs more than 100 lbs and so does the 610 HLF. Other Ampeg 410's are 8 ohms as far as I can see. I've considered getting (2) SVT 212A's but don't really want to lug two of those on the plane and like something that goes low, so any opinions of this cab? I've pretty much used Ampeg most of my life so am accustomed to the sound and have always had good luck with them and want something to match the head although the grille cloth is the wrong color. I was considering the HLF 410 NEO which for some reason is rated at a higher amount of power handling than the Heritage but then noticed it is an 8 ohm cab so that one's out too.
    @JimmyM @beans-on-toast anyone else?

    That's a tough one. I like the sound of the Heritage cabs. The 212 is really good. I'm more of a fan of non-LF when it comes to mixing bass recorded through one. So that's how I judge it.

    I'm surprised that cab dimensions aren't a consideration on the plane. Note that the shipping weight of the SVT-410HLF is 89 lbs.

    Another option is findind a cabinet maker in Peru that can build a speaker box based on a plan. Maybe a 215. Sounds like you have your heart set on 10" speakers though. :)
     
  3. Thanks Beans, I'll think about the 212, I'm just afraid it won't keep up with an SVT head regardless of the power ratings if I had to do any loud gigs which do come up here.

    If you have to get a 410hlf, Heritage is so the way to go.

  5. Do you also like the 212 cab better?

    Yep because it sounds more like an 810e and the 410hlf goes crazy low.

  7. Thanks Beans, ZZounds had the SVT-410HLF listed at 110 lbs, I thought that was an awful lot.
    Thanks, ZZSounds had the weight wrong on the SVT-410HLF, they had it listed as weighing 110 lbs which I thought was an awful lot. The cab(s) will be both overweight and too big and will cost me 400 bucks to fly it here.
