    Can anyone explain to me th function of the knob on the back of the SVT-410HLF. A friend told me it controls the horn, but what exactly is the horn and how does it effect the overall sound coming out of the cab. I'm running the SVT-410HLF with a SWR 750x and having trouble dialing in a tone and volume i like. Just looking for any suggestions?

    It's an attenuator for the tweeter.
    I suggest just cutting it off. :)

    The horn is a tweeter and he's right it's an attenuator, it puts in more highs. If you turn it up all the way it will more than likely hiss. I keep mine half way on my PR410HLF, but like a lot of things it's a matter of taste.
