    I have a little trouble...now i have a svt 15E and my question is:
    Is better, to add another little cabs as the 210he, or is better one big cabs like a svt 410hlf?

    big sound difference with a 210 +15?
    I prefer this solution for portability, best for me two 60 pounds cab then one 110 pounds cab!

    p.s. Only ampeg cabs!!!

    Adding a svt-210 classic is much louder than a single svt-410.I gig with those cabs, and it´s absolute great.Talk about headroom!
    Your amplifier will see a 4 ohm load, and will deliver allmost
    twice as much power.
    Furthermore, the svt-410 is not very efficient, it sounds a little soft, not loud and punchy.
    Which amplifier are you using?

    Your amplifier will see a 4 ohm load with STV-410HLF, too. And it's a damn loud cabinet! I'd say both 2x10+1x15 and 410hlf are good choices. If you have a chance try out both cabinet setups with your amplifier and bass and choose the one that you like the best. 2x10+1x15 setup offers you more flexibility and you can just use one cab in small clubs. With 410hlf you have one big cabinet but it's easy to move because it has wheels.
     
  4. I also gig regularly with the SVT 15E + SVT 210HE combo and I love it, HUGE sound available and killer tone. Easy to haul around also.

    Not a big fan of a 410 only so I cannot help ya on that side.

    One could be very happy with either setup. Since you have the 15, get the 2x10 and enjoy yourself.

    The 410HLF is a great cabinet, but like you say, it's heavy.

    Enjoy!!!

    Have more end more punchy sound, the HLF? Or the 210 (and 115 of course) is ok for punk and metal about "mid-presence"? I'm sorry for those specific questions, but i'can'play the hlf, my store haven't that...
