    Hey guys,

    So I kind of reached a tipping point with my Ampeg SVT HLF 4x10 tonight; I think I'm sick of it. I use a Traynor YBA200, which I like, but everything I put into the cab sounds WAAYYY too woofy; even with all the bass cut out on the amp, the sound is woofy with shrill, brittle highs, and just about nothing else in the middle. Now, I know its not the amp, because I have a little Hartke backup amp which I've plugged into the Ampeg, with similar results. Part of this may be our rehersal space, which is small for a five piece (even if we play quietly). So I'm looking for a do-it-all 4x10 or 2x12. I was thinking a sealed cab would tame some of the woofyness. I do, however, want a vintage vibe. I was thinking about the new Aguilar DB cabs, the EBS classic line (probably the 2x12; I've always liked 12"s), the Ampeg SVT 4x10 HE (which is sealed, I think), or anything else you crazy people can recommend! Let me know what you think...
  2. I found exactly the same thing with MY SVT410HLF when I used my tube amps with it. I sold it & bought a sealed cab that is easier to move,lighter & sounds SO MUCH BETTER!!! A Bergantino NV610 !!! Even tho it has 2 extra 10" spkrs it's 12lbs lighter, only 3 or 4" taller & FAR EZer to move & a great tight vintage sound-suits tube amps perfectly IMO. Never looked back. Doesn't 'fart out' like the 410 either. 750w 4 ohms. Many threads about this cab.
