Value For Money : Excellent
This speaker is a reference in the range Ampeg.
Used in rehearsals and concerts with the Ampeg amp SVT3 Pro (275 watts with this cabinet).
Therefore Weight: 41 kg but fortunately mounted on removable casters.
Total purchase cost in February 2008: € 1,720 VAT Stagg flight with U2 to protect the amp (including 690 € the speaker).

SOUNDS

Very good overall balance and you can set the tweeter at the back of the cabinet.
The adjustable tube preamp gives warmth to the sound.
Used pop-rock style, the finger or pick.

OVERALL OPINION

More than 6 years of regular use without problems ...
After selling my Trace Elliot GP7 715 to 150 watts, I tried a Hartke HA3500 + baffle 410 B XL with my Fender American Deluxe Jazz Bass US in 2005 and a Roland SWR and I can not remember the models.
Its too metal with Hartke and underpowered with the other 2 systems.
I remake that choice without problem despite manufacturing in Vietnam with preamp lamps Electro Harmonics brand of lesser quality, it seems that the Sovtek.
Be careful when changing lamps: they must be paired and set the bias to maximize the lifetime ...!
