Have other Ampeg owners had as many problems as I with Ampeg products? I will list the products and their problems/outcome. Bought SVT Pro3...top rattled when fan came on...took top off and put foam tape on top to prevent rattling. Sold it. Bought BXT410hl4...was the "boomiest" bottom I ever owned. Sold it. BA115 Combo Amp....overheated and "farting" sound. Returned for BA210. BA210, arrived with one speakers voice coil rubbing against the gap. Had to repair this myself.Also had 20 guage!! wiring for two 10" speakers with 220 watts rms. Sold it. SVT350 head. Fan was replaced and it still sounded like a jet engine. Finally rubber mounted it to get rid of the noise.Used it with 210 bottom on a 410he bottom.Traded head in on SVT1000. Sold both bottoms, 210 was rear ported "boom box" Bought the 810e. Svt1000...good loud clean amp...but wanted a Classic. Sold the SVT1000 and bought the SVT CL. Defective, right out of the box. Sent it back to store, got a replacement which works great!! 810e cabinet...very poor insulation. Ordered various insulation and installed foam insulation on the bare wood spots, and there were a lot of these spots. Sounds slightly deeper and warmer now. As you can see, I have had more than my fair share of problems, but finally I am happy. I have stuck with Ampeg for 20 years, off and on. I do notice a decline in quality control. These problems should have been caught before they left the plant. I have spent a lot of time with home audio, and have never recieved a defective product. One company I dealt with, ran their power amps at full power for 48 hours before they released it. When I pay 1000.00 for a bass bottom, I expect it to have ample insulation in it. I expect a 1600.00 head to arrive working. There was NO damage to the box. I figure a 600.00 bass head should not sound like a jet or rattle trap. Any other stories out there, like the overheatring amp problems so many have had?
