    I have an Ampeg PR 410HLF but I can't find a manual for it anywhere. The Ampeg site says it is unavailable.

    If someone has one can you post or send a copy?

    What were you hoping to get out of the manual? Specifications or general use tips?

    What is that big knob in the back supposed to do? What is the real rating on this thing because I am throwing waaay more then 600 watts at it and it is not flinching.

    The big knob on the back is a tweeter control. You can change how loud the high end above 5khz is. Roll it to the left to bring the volume of the tweeter down and to the right to increase it.

    No matter what you may think, it's hard to say if you are actually pushing more than 600 watts through it. However, the cab can truly pound out some low end.

    Supposedly it's 600 watts RMS and 1200 watts peak, but I would ignore the peak value. It is supposedly flat down to 30hz or slightly higher then rolls off quickly below 30hz.

    If I had the manual I would have known there was a tweeter in the cab. Who knows what other goodness is hiding?

    I'd love to know how much power I'm sending to my cab. How do you know?

    By the way, you can see the tweeter in the photo you posted.

    Mine had bigger casters on it and I roll it almost everywhere. It ain't light though.

    Guess I don't know for sure. I run into a sansamp bddi with the 10db boost to a Crown xls1500 bridged. I gotta believe that is more then 600watts but who knows?

    And never thought that was a tweeter but it became obvious when pointed out.

    I was running a Behringer V-Amp into a Crown XLS1000 bridged and had to crank the thing to get any "real" volume. Once I hooked up my new to me Hartke LH1000 the Ampeg took off. This thing is a beast.

    I bought this cab new in the early 2000's (probably 2002) for a STEAL, something like $600. It's been on so many gigs I've lost count, been though everything and it shows but MAN does it still sound amazing. The only two faults it has is weight and the stock casters are fairly useless. I run a little Mark Tube 500w mono head through it and it's like a match made in heaven.
