Ampeg SVT-810E Classic
Well known to all bassists, 8 HP 10 ", 800W into 4 ohms bass cabinet.
I plug a George Fairlane V20 Tube Amp head inside to play just about everything.

SOUNDS

The sound is not neutral at all, but it is not to have a neutral sound you buy this cabinet!
It looks like it was designed to accommodate a tube head: It really magnifies my Fairlane, my sound fits all alone in a mix.
It restores a huge dynamic and high performance. Result: I feel like twice the volume!

OVERALL OPINION

I have mine recently but I used backline or loan long enough.
I had a variety of speakers, from the smallest to the largest, but whether live or studio, nothing beats this one.
In addition, we must admit that it imposes on stage behind the fridge!
The sound is clearly his forte, and his weight his weak point ...
I would do this choice without hesitation despite the weight and bulk.

Ampeg SVT-810E Classic
8x10
800 watts
Can Stereo: 400 + 400 (although stereo 2410 stuck I do not see much use)
75kg
125cm high (ie useful for transport)

I use it for rpeter and concerts.
With my SVT classic is perfect, it's made for.
What motivated me is the diffusion and the height of the baffle, when I play I'm sorry but I have no ears or feet in the knees. Here at least I have my sound at the correct height.
Also no need to get too loud, the sound is distributed without cover other intruders (but could could).

I liked the handles on the sides of its small as 610 and 410 brothers.

SOUNDS

The frequency curve is definitely not neutral and I am very very happy. This cabinet is really a typical Ampeg (besides the longer it goes the more I realize that the typed his Ampeg cabinet and it is not so much the amp head).
He has a way of thinking that really brings the heavy, "MASTOC", the bass and lower midrange tap it! If my big rope détunée in G goes well, as there is no vent there is probably less infrastructure, but the bass and low mids are accentuated thereby still hear pretty well the rope . In fact that the baffle is closed makes dynamic bass frequencies higher it seems.
I played for a year and a half on the 610 HLF and I myself the 410 HLF, bah they did not have this sound too heavy, too "filled".
Also I noticed that my big G string was "pétouiller" "saturate" the HP 610 and 410, then the 810 is not the case. I do not know that the cabinet is closed because the membrane is perhaps stronger than if the air compressed by the movement of the HP escapes through the vent? I do not know I just found.
No tweeter, I feared that I miss it, trying to see what it gave sometimes I cut the tweeter on the 610 and 410, the sound in the treble was not great. There on the 810, there is no tweeter and highs are good, but not strident good, the 810 makes my sound very well shut.
In fact, this speaker just has that much to send and sends it to the point of getting the tweeters and other speakers vents for gadgets!

OVERALL OPINION

I have since June 2013, I did two concerts, perfect is any good, and we feel the floor vibrate when you play in front of his stack, I love it. The bass goes through the feet, it's great!
What I like the least about this is the size to 810 Quetchua when thrown into the air for it to mount alone? No, it's true it's heavy and bulky but when you play you will be rewarded for his efforts.
The value for money, I would say normal. Other cashing more than 810 watts, but that the advantage of having "only" 800 watts, which is not too forced to the amp head too hard to move well the HP .. . finally the "too hard" is still strong enough already ...

Ahhhh yes yes sir. I remake that choice that's clear, sound and dissemination, in addition it is suitable for all styles of music.
on the other hand clearly to home we need another amp. And micro-scenes too. To play jazz not strong in a small bar, it is not suitable unless you want to play jazz as strong as the metal.

Ampeg SVT-810E Classic
I said that I bought this cabinet made in the USA in 2007 which apparently has a better reputation than the recent manufactured in Asia ..
I play in a group recently and I Fallais a cabinet I found that cis occas and I did not hesitate for one moment has bought!
I use it with my Ampeg preamp please cl and my power amp QSC RMX 850 and I use it at home but a low volume of course ^ ^

The overall characteristics:
800 watts mono or stereo 2x400 watts
Runs on 4 ohms
Frequency: 58Hz-5kHz (therefore lower midrange typed in short)

For more info: http://www.ampeg.com/products/classic/svt810e/

SOUNDS

As said above the curve of frequency is 58Hz-5kHz and so this is exactly what I needed his typed a not too sharp and not too serious food you ears .. What surprised me is that even with a very low tuning (I play in drop granted Si) the thick rope is still feeling well and it's great! :)
The frequency of this baffle you are really out of the mix compared to your guitar and your drummer, I had already tried a Hartke cabinet as David Ellefson of Megadeth and rang much too serious sound was unclear and the bass really hurts fesait ears ^ ^

But as you svt810 classic sound of classic Ampeg that I sought thee for years! (Yes I also use a ampeg preamp but I already Prette of my cabinet for bass players who were Gallien Krueger amp or Hartke and he told me that the sound was exellent!)
So it is even for heads or not preamp Ampeg!

I confess that dynamic as a low volume tends to want the whole temperature increase especially when playing at home ^ ^
But once on stage that you can mount the volume please! And the dynamics and power of this baffle you jump to the face! :)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 months and I highly recommend to anyone who wants one to try an ampeg cabinets made in usa!
For I have no problem with this speaker is perfect and powerful enough for any kind of scene from a simple coffee Bercy in Paris ^ ^

I already try mesa boogies (powerful, but I did not have the small grains ampeg)
of Hartke (send too much bass and treble no peculiarity)
of EBS (which I found quite a lot but not enough to compete with ampeg!)

What I like the + ampeg is the grain that we hear on 8/10 album in the same temp and now it's really a reference I typed fairly low medium medium that highlight the mix here is therefore each of these tastes too ^ ^


To sum up: very powerful speaker for all kinds of scenes typed lower midrange with this grain as UNIQUE! I put 9/10 only because it takes a lot of cabinet space and is a true fridges to transport it is there are single fault!
