    Hi guys

    Just a quick one

    I have the chance to pick up an ampeg 410HE (500watts @ 8ohms) for a good price second hand. My head puts out 750watts @ 8 ohms.... is this going to be a problem? I'm hesitant but because i'm buying this for smaller gigs i'm not expecting the head to be running anywhere close to the 750watts so in theory then the cab will be fine?

    Please advise.

    Cheers

    Paddy

    Not a problem as long as you're sensible. You sound sensible to me. Why not?

    Have you got any experience with this particular cab?


    I play in a metal band and for big gigs have my warwick 8x10. Have always wanted a complete ampeg setup and see this as an opportunity to do that...with it being 8ohms i may get another one in the (near) future then i can get rid of the 8x10.

    Played many a 410HE in my day but never owned one. I'm not big on 410's anymore, but I always liked the HE a lot.

    I love the 6Pro, and use mine with a 215 @ 4 ohms. The set up you described should be fine, and adding another 410 HE will open that amp up and sound massive.

    A old straightback 810 or two 60's B-15 cabs.
