A few weeks ago I went to Guitar Center and tried out an Ampeg 8x10. I didn't really like it, didn't seem like I could get very loud without the speakers breaking up. I thought maybe cause the bass was too high but it was only half way up, thats where I usually have it. I thought this was very strange cause I have an Ampeg 6x10 and it seemes like my 6x10 can get louder. I saw somewhere that Guitar Center didn't treat their amps very well, and the 8x10 looked like it had been there a while, completely covered in dust. Is it possible one of the speakers was blown and thats why it sounded so bad? I am going back this weekend and taking my head and my bass. I was planning on getting the 8x10 cause all the bands I like play with them and I like those guys sound, and I thought it would be louder than the 6x10, but if it isn't then there is really no point in getting it. Thanks ahead of time, Jordan.
