    I want to get a Ampeg SVT-2x15 Cab but i dont know if i could get all the high's i wanted out of it.

    I want it mainly because of the fact that 2 15" speakers would give me a very good low sound, but would my high's still sound good?

    Too bad the Ampeg SVT-1540 was discontinued...

    Well, can't tell you that I've ever played that cabinent. I can tell you that depending upon the quality of the speaker, you shouldn't have a problem, though I don't know what kind of speakers Ampeg uses. I've got a Crate BX-100 that has great lows and awesome highs (I've never heard an amp anywhere near the same price range with as good of tone) and it has a 15" in it (I'm wondering if it has the option for a JBL 15" in it instead of the factory speaker). Try one before you buy and see if it's what you want.

    You must have a JBL in there 'cause I had one of these and it sounded horrible! It's now being used as a drum stool...

    The SVT 215E doesn't have any tweeters, and the frequency response is -3dB at 3 kHz. Kind of limited in the high end (but the low end seems very healthy, according to the specs). Regarding the 1540, I still see it listed in Musician's Friend (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/), so I wonder if it really has been discontinued. Are they going to replace it with a similar model?
