    I have the HF parts form an old ampeg 610 and was wondering if I could install them in my 810AV? Drill a hole for the horn and hook up the speaker wires to the l-pad. Would it work?, or are there other this involed that I'm not thinking of. Thanks.

    I wouldn't do it....

    But I really don't know the answer to your question.
    Anyways, if all the speaker connectors add up right, then I don't see why not, but I could be wrong. I mean if you want to do it, do it, I'm not gonna tell you "its a waste", because really, to each his own. :)

    the place where the horn would go is right dead center of the petition between the top 2 sealed chambers ..... you would have some work there to cut that petition and reseal it . i would probably try to use a postal mail cylinder ... liek a large poster would ship in ... i did it with pvc pipe a few years back ...

    Hi thepest.

    You might want to temporarily wire that horn up to hear what it sounds like in conjunction with your 810AV before you go drilling any holes.

    Tweeters are the antithesis of the tone which Ampeg 8x10's are known for.

    Thanks for the help, guys. I hooked up the horn resealed the cab and nailed what I was looking for. With the horn way back I'm getting a nice pick attack with a little shimmer and all the WHOOOMP of a sealed cab. Thanks again.
