    First thing that came to my mind was....why did you put that beautiful piece of gear on that flimsy little table??? Nice head, man! Should sound great pushin those boogies. Someday if you get a chance, put it through an 8X10 and bask in the bliss!

    "i was considering running it thru a 1x15"

    Well I'm sure that would sound great too, but I much prefer a bunch of 10's...the Ampeg just has this great mid grind thing that the 8X10 favors. The 8x10 has plenty of lows, but can also punch out the mids when desired.
     
  11. The Bergantino NV-Series cabs were made for the SVT! :D

    I like my NV-610 better than the current Ampeg 810. I actually think it sounds more like the old Ampeg 810s than the new Ampeg 810s do. It's also a foot shorter an 70 lbs lighter.... Sealed cabs are totally the way to go with an SVT.

    "what are those white switches for on the top-side of the faceplate?"

    If you mean the switches on the right, they are (from left to right) ground and power. The ground switch is due to the lack of 3-prong ground wire in the day.
