    Im looking at a SWR-500 and 2 SWR Goliath 3 4x10 Cabs. Any thoughts on this rig? Im buying it for $850. I will be replacing a GK Backline 600 and 4x10 GLX.
     
  2. Should sound great... big improvement from what you are using now.

    Sound like a really good price too. An added bonus would be if the items were made in the USA before the F-word buyout.

    Haha. Ill have to ask him when they were made... when was the Fen..... F-word buyout? How does this compete against an Ampeg SVT-3 Pro and a 4x10 BLX Cab
     
  4. Not sure when the buyout was. It will say on the back of the amp if it was made in the us.

    IMO, this setup will blow the Ampeg out ofthe water. SVT III is over rated in power and I bet even one of those SWR cabs with the SWR head will put out more than the Ampeg rig.

    Are those cabs 4 or 8 ohms?

    I think they are 8ohms... but thats another question I put in the email... the original Goliath 3 was 8 ohms which is what was pictured... but then later on they released Goliath 3 (4 ohm) and (8 ohm) editions... but im about 95% positive there 8ohms... Im probably going to go listen to them in a day or two.
     
  7. Ok you should be good at 8 ohms... just make sure youre head will go 2 ohms if they are 2x4 ohm cabs being used at the same time.

    If that rig is in decent condition, sounds like a nice deal to me. I "think" the III series Goliath was SWR w/ PAS woofers....maybe it was the IV series that under the F....

    I've had some experience with G III Jrs, good cabs.....
