    I'm kinda pressed for money, but what do you think.
    An Avatar 4x10 + 1x15, and an Ampeg Head.
    An Ampeg PR-410hlf, and an Ampeg Head.

    Ummmm isn't comparing an Ampeg Pro 410HLF to Avatar a bit like apples and oranges? The PR410HLF is about a Grand new (at GC) used ones are less... You can buy a lot of Avatar cabinets for $1000.

    A PR410HLF is a very heavy cabinet...something like 139 lbs IIRC. Avatars are much lighter.

    I truly love the PR410HLF, but given the choice, I'd vote Avatar for the economical edge.
  7. Honestly, my Avatar 115 is my most favorite cab that I've ever owned...I'm thinking of maybe even getting a second one...or maybe a 212 or a 210...idk.

    Dude, I have an Ampeg PR-410 HLF and an Ampeg SVT-5 Pro and I can tear it up all night long with that rig! I previously had an SWR setup and this thing smokes it. Seriously, this setup gets respect!
