    Hey there, any body using the lh 500 with a ampeg 810? Im playing at å festival this weekend and they have a ampeg backline amp and cab. But i just bought the lh500 and want to use it. But dont know how well it will play with the 810 cab...

    I'd use the lh1000 for that. I had the lh500 and absolutely loved it but it was maxing out on a 4x10....

    Never tried it, but I'd give it a shot. Don't necessarily get caught up on watts...one amp's 100 watts can be twice as loud as another amps. There isn't a single standard. After all, an SVT isn't 1000 watts. If your amp won't drive the cab, you can always either use the backline amp by itself, or slave your amp into it.

    I used this setup for a while. Very reliable and pretty nice sounding at an affordable rate..... Either is a good choice. If their back line is an SVT, go with that (DUH)!

    Thanks for youre reply's. I know the ampeg is a killer sounding rig. But i would like to try out my new amp, this is basicly why i went from a combo to a amp/cab rig... I am going to get the lh1000 later on, But i just got a great deal on my current rig...

    I can tell you from experience the LH500/1000 sounded dreadful through an Ampeg 410HLF. I don't know about the 810, but hey, if you sound check and you hate the combo, switch it out with the provided backline. I've since ditched the Ampeg and got the matching Hartke Hydrive 410 :hyper:
