    SO i just got this rig. Its an early 70s Ampeg V4B in great shape with a trace elliot 1048 4x10. its the 80s 300watt version i believe.

    Does anyone have the specs for this cab? Im wondering what the speaker sensitivity is. Just trying to get the most clean volume out of this amp as possible. I love it so far. Gig volumes put me teetering on the edge of clean and grit, i love the sound!

    Congrats on the V4B. I noticed the Y plug on the input. Does it make a difference?

    as difference in what? no sure what you're asking specifically.

    ill tell you what it DOES do.

    1. I can use both channels at once. it gives a different sound and will make the amp break up sooner.

    2. I can use one channel at a time (turn one all the way down) and if i want to switch channels there's no need to unplug and plug into the other channel...all i do is mess with the volume knobs.

    thanks for the link!

    I like the sound of the cab but i have never used a different cab. i got the amp and cab as a package deal from a good friend for CHEAP! sometime down the road an ampeg cab will be under that V4B fer sure

    The cab you have is quite high sensitivity if you need more level clean just Do the equivalent of doubling the wattage of your V4b but doubling
    up on your speaker coupling.

    If its 100 watts of amazing tube sound you only have to offer it more speakers to be well loud enough remember Lemmy has a 4x12 + 4x15 per 100 watts of Marshall amp.:bassist:
    Having cabs with labels made by the same guys that made the labels for the head is so old, after all how many head manufacturers make their own speakers or even influence the design of them other than the self adhesive labels these days.:bassist:

    Yup I knew that about Lemmy :cool:

    Is that your rig? Id love to find an old Trace Elliot 8x10 (from the 80s..did they make them?)

    The amp is plenty loud how it is. I was just curious about the specs of my speaker cab. It has Celestians right?

    Oh yeah, I almost forgot. At gigs this rig gets plugged into our PA via the amps line out to make use of out 1000w JBL subwoofer :bassist::D:bassist:

    What you've got is certainly acceptable, but a V4 will really floor you through a pair of 15"s. They can be in separate cabs if weight is an issue.

    weight is not an issue! the 410 is 90 lbs!!

    I would like to either add another trace elliot cab or get a 610 or 810 cab though. I am a little afraid that it might not be loud enough for all the gigs.

    You are bumping a thread that is a year and a half old. Maybe be a little more specific with your query.
