    My Ampeg is a SVT 410 HLN.
    Aren't most of them SVT 410 HLF's? The spec's seem to be the same as the Ampeg site states for the HLF.
    Is this a typo on the back label or is the HLN an actual model? I just purchased it at Xmas, brand new.
    It's rated at 500 RMS watts/1000 program watts@4ohms. Where as the HLF is 400 RMS watts/800 program watts@4ohms.

    Ported cab, tilt back casters, same dimensions,etc.

    Just wondering. Anyone?
     
  2. I have a SVT 410HEN. The HL is the one with the ports and the HE is without. The 410HLF and 410HE are rated at 400/800 watts. Your 410HLN and my 410HEN are both rated at 500/1000 watts. Apparently, the N denotes a step-up model with more power handling. Cool, let's start a club. :)

    I ordered an SVT-410HLF and was supplied the HLN too. If I remember right, even the shipping box said it was HLF. No problem, I can live with the power handling upgrade! LOVE this cab!

    This cab does rock, eh?
    Beautiful thick sound with lots of balls.
    What do you guys set the horn at? I have mine at 9 o'clock for just a touch of high's.
    I'm pushing it through a Yorkville 400 Bassmaster with MIA P and MIMJ w/active EMG's.
    Effects:
    CE-2
    ODB-3
    OC-2

    My style is Geezer Butler/Michael Anthony/Robert DeLeo and the tone of this baby gets me where I need to be.

    Yes indeedy, this cab kicks!

    I'm running a QSC-PLX3002 and SVP-BSP preamp, using a Dingwall Voodoo Zebra 5 (primarly). The Zebra has some sweet high-end, so I run the tweeter at about 5, and keep it at about 1/4 turn on the pre.

    I also have the PR-410HLF cab, which is pretty sweet also, but I think the SVT cab is a little more balanced.

    Sounds like you're feeding your cab with some pretty nice equipment!
     
  6. Like I said earlier, my cab is the 410HEN, without the ports, but it rocks. The SVT cabs look the coolest, better than the PRO series cabs, and sound incredible. I push mine with an SVT-3PRO and since the HE* is an 8 ohm cab it's at 275 watts right now and it sounds pretty darn cool. I wonder if it can be modified with a series/parallel switch to switch impedences so I can push a full 450w into it.

    I was at Guitar Center this past weekend and was listening to the 6X10 HLF. Six tens, a horn tweeter and the front ports. It was deep and meaty, but you got that sweet sound from the tweeter. It was about a foot shorter than the 8X10 and sounded great. I went away thinking it's the best of everything in an Ampeg cab.

    Possibly the best cab to have around....with or without the PA! :)
    I was trying to find small and loud enough and this was the choice after few years of playing all sorts of cabs and clubs.
    Mine is driven by Randall RBA-500, SYB5, EBS micro bass ii, Copilot fx orbit, (Croatian) Cats Jazz bass with hipshot extender and it's a blast!
    From Hip-hop to D'n'B works like a Swiss clock dipped in chocolate.
