    IN CASE YOU DON'T KNOW: TYPING ALL CAPS MEANS YOU ARE SHOUTING!
    This is considered rude behaviour...

    The powered sub is primarily intended as a 'low end extension' for combos (or smaller rigs) which can not drive any additional cab - e.g. 210 combos without 'ext. speaker out'.
    As it is self-powered, you hook it up to the preamp output (or line-out or FX-send) of your amp and not to the speaker output.
    It has no volume control but a 2-position switch (0db/-3dB) but this is said to be sufficient.

    Sorry, I can't give a definite answer here because I have never heard this cab. In a review it was reported that it adds a lot of solid bottom but not much loudness. So I guess it depends on what you are looking for.

    But here is a thought:
    Low frequencies eat up a lot of amp power, that's a fact. If you add the subwoofer to your rig you will probably be able to roll off the bass on your Ampeg, this will leave you more power for midrange and treble which is good for higher perceived volume.

    I don't know how the subwoofer matches with your rig though, so I would definitely try this setup before buying the sub!
