    I think the title says it all. I'm curious as to what kind of power your pumping through your 8x10 cabinet, because I'm quickly getting the feeling I don't need as much power as I think so I'm curious as to what the community uses!

    Thanks guys....these forums have been incredibly helpful. Seriously the best source of info for bass ever!
  2. I dont own an 810 anymore, but I do use one on occasion. When I do I either use a 400 watt tube amp, a B1500, or an Ampeg Portaflex.
  3. I use the SVT-CL
    Love it!!
  4. Amps I have used with Ampeg 810's: V4-B, SVT, Sunn 2000S, Fender Dual Showman and a G-K 800RB. That is (if it really makes any difference) from a 100 watt to 300 watt tube or 300 watt SS. Never had to push too hard with any of them.

    '78 Ampeg 810...VB-2 head...225W.
  6. Not an 8X10 but I run either an Ampeg V4BH or a Mesa 400 (non plus) into my Mesa 6X10 cab.
  7. Ampeg SVP-PRO Preamp pushing a QSC RMX1450 power amp. In stereo...

    V4, SVT, SC-120, or PF-500. That's 100 - 500 watts.

    Heritage SVT-CL, and before that a 69 SVT. I have used a PF350 and a V4B as well, but usually if I'm going to trot out the 810, I figure I might as well trot out the SVT.

    I think I'm about to be laughed at: I've plugged all sorts of tube heads into an 810, anything ranging from a 5-watt VibroChamp for practicing guitar all the way up to an SVT for gigging.
  16. :D:D:D:D ha ha ha!!!

    no really, whatever floats.....

    GK 1001 RB into a Heritage 810. Would like to get a V4B at some point, or possibly a VR or SVT 2.

    For what it is, a value jr sounds pretty killer cranked into an 8x10. Fun for low volume rehearsals at least.

    PF-500 for bass, or a Jet City JC20H for guitar.

    The JC20H only has 8 or 16 ohm outputs though, so I only plug into the top 4x12. Sounds good nonetheless. Hmmm... I do have a power soak with a line-out I could plug into an EHX 44 Magnum for the bottom 4x12... muahahaha :bassist:
