  1. Hi all.
    Does anyone know anything about the ampeg svt 400t. I heard that its hard to get good volume out of it.
    I'm looking at this bass head as apart of my first rig.

    A friend of mine used one for a long time & everytime I went to see him live he was always heard. The head is 200W per side. I think that's powerful enough for gigging.

    I used one for a few years playing in bars and wedding receptions. I pushed either a pair of Peavey 2x10's or a pair of 1x15's. It was enough amp for the job and very reliable. Amps that size used to be pretty common before we started needing kilowatts.

    The only problem I ever had was every couple of years the cooling fan would die ($20 part and 10 minutes to swap).
