  1. Alright, i just bought myself a Ampeg SVT-48he. Which is a 4x8 8 ohm cab with 200 watts power handling. Alright so i have this cab, and i will at some time buy a 15 to add to it probably. So what is a good amp head(or perhaps a pre/poweramp setup??) for this setup? the rest of my desires are listed below:
    max price i'd consider 600, and thats pushing it, i'd like to only spend 500 at max
    I'd like a crossover so i can send higher frequencies to the 4x8 and lower to the 15.
    I'd like to get a strong source of power, no weak amp
    Tone i like, Eden, Ampeg(usually with a tube preamp) SWR, GK is alright too, also any tones similar to these, i like definition, i want to hear the notes not just feel them.
    I am probably looking to buy used too, best bang for the buck,
    Thanks all

    Look for a used Carvin Redline 1000.
