    Ampeg SVT1510
    15" speaker
    1-10" speaker
    1- horn
    175 watts at 8 ohms
    Does anyone have any experience with this cab or heard of it? I didn't see it on ampeg's website so i'm assuming its discontinued. What type of sound does it have? Is it reliable?

    thanks,

    It was a good example of "me-too" design :)

    SWR was selling the Triad (same type of cab, 15", 10" and horn). So Ampeg went and made a cab like that, didn't sell many and stopped making therm.

    Reliable? As reliable as any other Ampeg cabinet.

    Sound? A cross between a 1-15 and a 2-10, more or less.

    Thanks,

    The reason i'm asking is that I would like to add to my 1x15 right now. I had been looking at some 2x10s but I figure this would give me a little more surface area, and its pretty cheap, and I know the ampeg name. But i am looking to add some punch and a more definite high end. Does anybody have any views on how a 10, 15, and horn would sound compared to 2 10's?? I don't have the opportunity to try this cab out.

    thanks,
