    I have a SVT-410HLF in transit to me right now. I'm thinking of adding another cabinet to my setup later on. What would make a good pairing with the 410? I want something portable so i was thinking about the SVT-15e but since its 8ohm and only able to take 400watts, it may not make a good pair.
    The power amp I'll be using is a RMX 1850HD. Can I push uneven loads like that? What are your thoughts?

    BTW, I just got my first bass setup. SVP-Pro, SVT-410HLF, QSC RMX 1850HD, and a Lakland 55-01. All of which are still in transit! :hyper:

    I've been pairing my Schroeder 1210 with my SVT410HLF. It's a cool mix, both are full sounding, but the Schroeder is clearer and the Ampeg is muddier.

    Thanks abark000, I haven't heard anything bad about Schroeder cabs.

    I got my SVT-410HLF in today and realized it didn't have skid rails. I'm thinking skid rails will make it much easier to move up and down stairs. Does anyone know where I can purchase such things for a 4x10 cab?

    I used to pair my SVT410HLF with another SVT410HLF. Driving 2 of those cabs with an SVT4 Pro=serious volume and low end. IMHO, the 410HLF puts out enough lows on its own that adding a 15" is unnecessary.

    YMMV, of course. :)

    I might mention that the SVT-410HLF is a 4 ohm cabinet, so if you pair it with another cabinet, you will not be able to do that in bridge mono.
