V-4B + 2 x svt210av

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Scott549, Jun 21, 2014.


  1. I'm toying with the idea of pairing a new V-4b with two svt210-av cabinets. Any reason that would not be a good idea? I would be trading heavier cabinets (PF-115he and Avatar SB112) but the rig would be lighter and seem to match well.

    Thoughts appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I can't think of a reason...

    Actually, I can think of one...the PF115he goes lower and takes more of a pounding than the 210av. However, if you match the 210av's up with a V4B, you won't be going over the power handling limits even if you crank it, and it does sound quite awesome.
     
  3. Related (set of) question - what are the pros and cons of getting a new V-4b reissue as opposed to an old used one for half the price?

    New one: 20 lbs less, 3 or 4 inches less wide, has a 5-yr warranty (90 days for tubes), sounds just like I remember my old 73 V4B.

    Old one: Costs less, has vintage "cred."
     
  5. Thanks Jimmy. You just sold me on the new one.
     
  6. Crazy thought - it can handle 2 ohms, which means you could connect four 210av cabinets. :)

    It's the ultimate modular 8x10. I know some people do 2 or 4 of them with an SVT. V4 gives you that added level of 100 watts and a single cab. Very flexible.

    It's amazing how loud these little 210AVs can get when you push them. And they sound great.
