For a number of years I played the full SVT/refrigerator rig and frankly for my tastes it is still THE sound. Fast forward too many years and once again I am shopping for one. What I dont get is that in any discusion about the SVT, folks tend to say things like “You dont need that much amp” or “its too loud” etc etc. Yet thats never mentioned in the conext of my 800 or 1000 watt class D amps. I can only guess that people interpret physical size and weight with volume. But to me its wattage, and a watt is a watt regardless of source. So I just dont get the perception that it is louder than more powerful amps. It would be nice to get some input from the repair/engineering types (versus conjecture). And yeah Im sure this is an old question so save your spam for your eggs. No nead to mention weight either - its good exercise when handled correctly.
