How is the Ampeg PF800 head paired with the PF 410 cab?

    I'm still in the market for my first gigging head/cabinet. There is not a great selection for test cabs at my local stores, so it's hard to get my hands on these ...

    Do you think the single 4x10 HLF - 800 watts at 8 ohms would be enough power with the PF-800 watt head? ( small/medium sized local venues, or outdoor gigs with PA support )

    It seems like an excellent value at around $1000 for both the amp and cab. General thoughts on this combo? Thanks!

    It should be enough, sure. That's all I can tell you about it, a PF800 but never got to try out the cab yet. But I've used the 800 many times with a 410he and it screams.

    Did you mean the HLF410 or the PF 410? I'm curious about the reliability of the latter combination myself.

    It's the
    Ampeg PF-410HLF 4x10" 800-Watt Portaflex Bass Cabinet
    model for $549.99

  5. It beams upper mids like nearly every other 410. On a small stage it's very hard to hear what note you are playing.

    A 2x4 propped under the cabinet (many cabinets) is extremely helpful for hearing yourself. Regardless, I am sure it will work well for hearing yourself onstage.
