SVT 810E or GenzBenz 610T-XB2?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by ThePaleHorse, Jun 1, 2007.

  1. I've played through an ampeg svt810E and loved the tone and everything. Has anyone had any experience with the genzbenz 610? It has a sensitivity rating of 105db. Would this make it significantly louder than the svt810's 100db rating? Im looking to get a new cab and want to make the right choice. Also they are both around $1000 which is about the cutoff of my pricerange.

    If you love the 810E tone then get it. If not, I think a good 610 would make you happy too. Genz-Benz is highly praised around here, but I'd also suggest the Mesa 610 or a Bergantino NV610.

  4. This is my Genz setup. As you can see my cabinet is a 610T-XB2. I bought the cabinet 18 months ago and have continuesly gigged with it in a host of venues since then. It's a loud and very articulate sounding cab.

    It's pretty easy to move around. I can't say the same thing for the Ampeg 810, or any 810 cabinet for that matter.

    There's no question that it helps to be driving it with a 1000 watt head at 4 ohms.

    I was going to buy an 810 before I found my 610T-XB-2. It would have been a mistake for me if I had now that I think back about it. This cabinet is everything and more that any 810 cab could give me in sound, and it's smaller and far easier to move around to boot.


  5. I LIKE my ampeg 810, I just wish it pumped out some lower lows. It really does the low mid thing like no other cab can, but I just wish it went a bit deeper into the lows.

    I recently got the chance to play through a Eden 610XLT. To my way of hearing bass it was the " BEST" 10" speaker loaded cabinet I've ever played .

    The standard Ampeg 8x10 is a sealed box (no ports). If you want bigger lows, you'll probably want to audition ported cabinets. I'd recommend the 6x10 cabs listed above: Mesa, Genz-Benz, Eden. Also the Epifani UL610, if you don't mind paying more for the convenience of an ultra-light cabinet. The Bergantino NV610 is sealed like the Ampeg.

    If you're looking to change your tone, then heck, maybe a 4x10 would work for you. Or a 4x10/1x15 stack.
