Don't have much experience with them besides listening to them. My opinion being they're warmer and have more presence in a band situation than the SVT-4Pro
Loved the EQ- prefer it over the other Pro's.
Sounds like a 3 Pro on 'roids.
I just sold mine. It's a very good, competent amp. It's really versatile. I was just at a point where I "liked" it, but didn't "love" it.
I do think it's a bit underpowered for the stated wattage. HOWEVER, that doesn't mean it isn't VERY loud. I never ran out of headroom with it. I just base the opinion on the fact that with the same bass, and same cabinet, my Carvin B1500 is about the same volume with the master on 2 or 3 as the SVT 6 was turned almost half way up.
They can be found for a bargain price (I just took a bath on the mine...selling it on ebay) , and I wouldn't hesitate to use one again.
I LOVE mine.
It is VERY loud.
I play mine through an Ampeg 610 and it is AWESOME.
(Not sure what to say about the "underpowered for the stated wattage" stuff - I have nothing to compare it to - - that seems to be what everyone says - maybe part urban legend by now?)
I routinely battle 2 full Marshall stacks and a drummer with NO problem.
I believe I could easily overpower them if I wanted to.
I am actually looking to pick up a smaller head/cab rig right now because the SVT-6 is a heavy beast (40 pounds) and the 610 is no lightweight either
I wont give either of them up, so it means that I'll have a big rig and a not so big rig...
I dug the 6pro. Almost got it. The EQ is very usable.
But as stated before, I liked it, didn't love it. But easily Ampeg's best mono amp.
Well, if my actual experience ads up to an urban legend, that's cool!
i like the tone i got from an svt-6pro at GC a little more than the 4pro, but i like how you can hook up two 810e's with the 4...now, if the 6 did 2 ohms, or had a stereo power amp, it would be smokin'...
I believe what you say is true...But I also believe that when something is repeated often enough, it becomes "true".
I think the SVT-6 may suffer from both circumstances.
