    I have/had a deal on a used SWR Goliath...but turned it down because I though the ampeg would suit me better...but I botched my research ...I read the specs wrong.....I need too know RIGHT NOW...he may be selling the SWR to someone else!!!


    My two choices....


    SWR Goliath III 8 OHMS
    or
    AMPEG SVT-HLF 4 OHMS

    now....the SWR is 700watts RMS,(I know SWR puts out a 4 ohm, but I'm looking at a good deal used goliath at 8 ohms), but the Ampeg is only 400 watts RMS. The SWR is 8 ohms, the ampeg 4 ohms....what should sway me in this situation watts or ohms. I want to maximize my tone and volume.
    (I've played em with my rig in the store, Ashly Bp-41 + Carvin DCM1000 Power Amp....but you know....it's different when your up there full blast with a band.)


    ON PAPER...whats better?

    Get the Goliath.

    Don't worry too much about the impedance. You can run the Carvin bridged - 700W @ 8 Ohm. That's plenty enough power.

    I would go with the 8 ohm cabinet.
     
  4. Get the 8 ohm Goliath. More flexibility if you add a cab later, and as stated above, you have plenty of available power.
