    Hi all, for about 2 months, I own the B410Pro. I was unable to get the sound, until yesterday. I was playing at a gig, semi-open space, wood ceiling, not a close gig site.

    This cabs ROCKS!!. The low end was awesome!!!, plus that midrange sound that cut thru the mix. I can feel the whole place rumbling, and myself in competition with half stack marshall. Some other fellows from other bands made compliements about my sound, they were amaze!! :hyper: yeah!!!!!!!!!!!1

    At last!!. :D My set up: SVP-BSP, QSC PLX1202, Avatar B410Pro

    SVP-BSP: (from 0 to 10) Clean channel: Gain at 7, bass at 7, mid at 6, treble at 5, volume at 8

    Overdrive Channel: gain at 4, bass at 5, mid at 7, freq at 7, treble at 5, volume at 8.

    Master at 4.

    PLX: gain knobs at +24 marker.

    Hey man, glad to here your having a good gear day! The avatar 10" really comliment the ampeg stuff. It makes the low end sound tighter. Did you ever change the tube in your preamp?
     
  3. Glad to hear you have worked out the "lack of bass" issue :) I had the same great experience playing this weekend with my B410 Pro at my Church. Many compliments on tone - which I have NEVER had before. One guy went so far as to say "Pro equipment sure does make a big difference!". Lets not argue about what "pro" means, but this is a seasoned, experienced musician who doesn't just say things to butter people up. I think we're on to something here...

    ps. I found the same thing about the mids - they cut through like a propane torch to butter - I have never been able to hear myself better live. One of THE single best purchases I've made to date.

    yes kappa pro. Hard to tell the diference from me!! I think the Neo is more mellow sound (as per other users comments), not as loud as the kappa. Good things have been said at harmony central! and here.
     
  8. It's weird how different a cab can sound in different locations. Like my 2x15 Kappa proLF-2 cab. In a tight space/stage, I rarely get a sound that I like, but in open areas it sounds so smooth and deep, but yet punchy. I have to get away from the cab to really hear the sound it's producing. Open air gigs sound much better to me.
