    I am picking up "my" (not yet) Ampeg PR410hlf this up coming friday, and have bidded on an Ampeg SVT-3 PRO (450 watts @ 4 ohms) the cab is 600 RMS @ 4 ohms.
    Is that too much underpowering, I don't think it is, but this will be my first rig, so I don't exactly know...

    You should be fine.. Underpowering is only an issue if you run the amp so hard it clips.
  3. only if you push the amp to clipping. They should work fine ... good luck!
  4. As long as you do not push the amp to clipping, it will do just fine. I'm sure you will have Ampeg's blessing on this wedding.

    Nice first rig, I'm assuming the cab is 410 or a couple of 15s? my first "rig" was a $300 fender 60watt 12" combo and for my first real "gig" (not in someones house) I had only 80watts and two 10"s.
