    I stumbled upon an Ampeg Isovent cabinet on ebay today and I could not find much information about it on the internet. I was wondering if anybody has had any experience with these and could tell me about it. It has 2 15's, but arranged strangely and 2 10's angled up. It seems like a good idea for me because I like the boom of a 15 with the clarity and attack of 10's. Just wondering if anybody has tried one of these.

    Funny, I could have sworn that was intended to say, "AMPEG INSOLVENT!"

    Thinkin'..."Just my luck, I walk in the house straight back from Guitar Center with a new Ampeg amp and they go belly-up on me!"

    Whew! :D

    Me three.......you guys must read fast also.....we miss stuff doing that.

    My second thought was.....heck they better have money, they just got bought, and Sun Capital Partners (owner of LOUD) has a LOT of money.

    That's when I read it again.

    Isovent is different from the one with the rear-firing and front firing speakers, right?
     
  5. Is that the one with the Peavey head? I have the exact smae rig and I LOVE the cabinet. However they're right about the head. My peavey head stinks. I've borrowed an Ampeg and a fender head for different uses and they both sound muchmuchmuch better. again: Isovent rocks, Peavey head with it sucks.
     
  6. Wow, strange cab, especaially with the rear fireing 15"er , odd that

    for the price peavey heads are great (well my firebass is anyway) :p

    reliable as hell, and mine sounds great now ive got a sansamp BDDI!
