    Hi,

    I have a Orange 8x10 cabinet from the 90's ... Long story short: it was a pair with AD140B custom shop basshead, only like 20 made, before making the first AD200B's (MK1 and MK2), ... And after those the serial-production AD200B's MK3's came out. I bought the pair, but sold the AD140B later because I also have a AD200B MK2 ...

    But, the cabinet. It's loaded with 8 EMINENCE Delta 10-A speakers, rated at 350 watts. Don't know why, the website of Eminence says those are not bass-guitar speakers but just "standard american pro speakers" ...

    What are these speakers compared to regulare Ampeg 810's? Most weird: in the speakers specs it's always about "vented cabs", but this 810 Orange is a totally closed cabinet. (inside, divided in 2x12's ... sealed!)

    All info on these speakers or the specs of the speakers for use on bassguitar are welcome! Reason I ask this, I just bought a vintage SVT and I'm afraid to blow the speakers ...

    (Old picture from like 2004 ... I sold the Ampeg 410HLF, too boomy ... and I also sold the AD140B).

    The Delta 10a tops out at 3.7k so that wouldn't be my first choice for an 810 since I like the 5k Ampeg gives you in their 810. However, they will be fine. Just because Eminence calls them pro audio speakers doesn't mean you can't use them for bass. I have a B-15 with two cabs loaded with Delta 15a's, and they're "pro audio speakers," too, and sound just like the speakers the B-15 originally came with.

    Eminence Deltas are very cool sounding through guitar and bass heads. Give em a whirl.

    Yeah ... I use this cab for like eight years now. Not on the road, not all yhe time ... Sounds cool, a lot of mid. The cab is build like a 4 x 2x10" ... And inside there is a lot of white 'white fur coat' glued against the wood ...

    But, is it strong enough to handle a vintage SVT at 350 watts? Must be, but the guy I bought it from blew several speakers with this SVT ...

    That's 350w PER SPEAKER, not for the whole cab!
