Eden 2x10XLT + 1x15XLT + SVTIIIPro

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Sanctum, May 21, 2002.

  1. Ok, I know the SVTIIIPro isnt the ideal head for these cabs, but I'm getting a pretty good deal from my local shop, and I'm tired of my Ampeg cabs. GAS

    So anyhow, I'll deal with the SVTIIIPro pushing these cabs for now ..... hmmm, then what to buy for a new head? btw, I dont really like the Eden heads that much. SVT4Pro? Mesa?

    oh yea, I'm buying the cabs only, I already have the SVTIIIPro.

    Those are excellent cabs!........If you like the sound of the Ampeg and you want more juice, you might consider a Ampeg pre + a seperate power amp.

    definately go for the cabs.

    i second the power/pre setup.
  4. yep the power amp idea has floated around before, running the preamp out of my SVTIIIPro. anyone have a good suggestion considering the cabs are:

    2x10 = 350watts @ 8 ohms
    1x15 = 400watts @ 8 ohms

    sweet, thanks

    if you don't run stereo, you could get a carvin DCM1000, bridge it, and run 1000w total. that'd work.

    The QSC PLX1602/2402 are nice lightweight poweramps........& Carvin power amps a good bang for the buck, but a little heavier. You could sell you SVT3 and get just a Ampeg preamp.....the preamp & QSC poweramp would be about as light or lighter than just your PRO3....with a lot more juice:D

    I also recommend the QSC PLX series power amps. I got a used PLX 1602 to replace the SVT-III Pro. If you want the power without losing the Ampeg tone, it's worth considering the SVT-BSP preamp. This power/pre combination will weigh 30 pounds and have 400 watts more power at 4 ohms than the 42 pound SVT-4 Pro. Also, you leave your options open to switch the preamp down the road if your taste in tone changes.
