    Based on the recommendation of one of our brethren from a different thread I checked out Bergantino's website re their NV115. Looks very interesting (read: I'd really, really like to have one). Problem is that it's an 8 ohm cabinet and my Ampeg SVT Heritage allows only 4 ohm and 2 ohm set-ups. The emailed response from Jim Bergantino is that the cabinet is only available as an 8 ohm. Anybody have any suggestions as to a great 1X15 cab (especially if it has a midrange horn like that NV115) that'll work with my Ampeg? Oh, and, no, buying two is not an option.

    Wish I could help you but I run 2 of them with a 76 SVT sometimes and it sounds awesome.

    Audiokinesis, Hathor 1533 or 1505.
    Switchable between 4 and 8 ohms.
    That's soon going to be my choice.

    +1 on 2xNV115's. Now you have your 4 ohms, and 2 midrange drivers vs 1.
    Get a Forte when you want to do smaller gigs and lug only 1 cab out.

    Man it's easy for me to spend others' money! :)

    If you really want the NV115, and it has to be only one, then Glockenklang's impedance transformer will solve your problem.
