New SWR 212

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Wounded Paw, Apr 2, 2002.

  1. After looking around I've discovered SWR is coming out with a new 212 8ohm cabinet with no horn. I'm thinking this is perfect for me cuz:
    A - I'm using an old Ampeg SVT with only an Ampeg 410 8ohm cabinet and I'm not real happy with the power and definition.
    B - I borrowed a SWR 610 4 ohm cab at a gig and it blew me away
    C - I don't like 15's for muddiness

    If I use both the ampeg 410 which has a horn and the SWR 212 I should be getting everything I want without muddiness. It'll be loading the amp better - 2 8ohm cabinets -> 4ohm amp.

    I love the old ampeg sound and I need a lot of power cuz I play in a crust/grind hardcore punk sort of band and use a distortion pedal on and off alot during songs.

    Does this sound like a good idea?
