    image. Ampeg describes the 810e as the cabinet your band needs. Since getting one, i feel like my whole band sounds much better. The presence and punch of the bass is so much better than before when i had a 15 and two 10s. Anyone else here a 810 fan? I will haul it on and off stage all day so long as it is on stage for the gig. I think an 810 takes one's band to the next level. Anyone agree? Disagree?
     
  2. Looks great , sounds great and drummers and guitar stack owners fear us. What's not to like?:thumbsup:

    I used to run an 810, and have used more than a few. Turns out I could get more sound out of a lighter cabinet, so I sold the 810 and moved on. Not sad to see it go.

    Cool Stage
     
  5. By the way , I have two of them. (Three actually but that's another story.) No band has ever let me take them both on stage but I did hook them both up in my basement a few years ago. I'm pretty sure that is what caused the East Coast earthquake.;)

    Ampeg 810 is hard to beat. They make great big noises all day long and never break a sweat!

    No horn. Sealed cab=low bass response that isn't my favorite.
    So: I'll pass.
    To each his own though.

    I never found the need for more than a good 4x10. Only time I would consider 8x10 is if I really needed that extra volume/pressure and had 2 guys carry it for me, anywhere I go.

    Hoisting it on stage is usually a two man effort but that is what bandmates are for right? Its the fridge.

    Yea thats right, I just never liked lifting lots of heavy stuff before a concert, since it could affect my playing later. So I generally try to go for light gear. But I'm glad that setup works for you :)
     
  13. Never had a 810 but did have 2x412 stacked with tube head of course - pant flapping goodness!

    If it wasn't so damned big and heavy (and I wasn't getting old) I would still probably be using it.

    Love my 810 but I've been turned on toward 12s recently. Next cab I grab will be a second 212av to complete my V4B stack.

    That's my exact rig and it is pure heaven. Very close to the fridge IME.

    I for one don't find the fridge bad to move at all. Easy to roll around and do the tilt/lift thing to load it up. Unless there are stairs of course, but that's what they make drummers for...

    Yes, they have a great classic look and sound. But we have so many more options now, my days of lugging around huge heavy cabinets and heads are over:)

    That looks sweet, dude. I've never done the 8x10" thing, but I'm always keeping an eye out to try an SWR 6x10".
