Ampeg enclosures have been setting the standard in bass tone for decades, and your Ampeg SVT-810E bass cabinet is no exception. Affectionately known as "The Fridge," this massive bottom-end box of boom brings the heavy with eight 10" speakers in a Baltic birch plywood enclosure, dual 1/4" and secure Neutrik Speakon inputs/outputs, a tilt-back handle bar, and a protective skid rails for easy transport. This workhorse cab pushes out a maximum SPL of 130 dB and is built to take the abuse of the road, delivering on all expectations the Ampeg name elicits.

The Power of Eight 10" Speakers

There's a reason Ampeg decided to go with eight separate 10" speakers: sonic efficiency. Ampeg learned that 15" or 18" speakers don't dish out the same sonic effectiveness as 10" speakers do, and the eight 10" speakers in your SVT-810E respond to transient peaks more quickly than larger speakers. This cab has a maximum SPL of 130 dB, so you can really push the volume hard without worrying about your signal becoming distorted.

Unchanged Matchless Design Since the Late '60s

Your SVT-810E bass cab is virtually identical to the original SVT-810. The renowned Infinite Baffle design features a sealed enclosure which keeps your tone nice and tight, resulting a rigid and focused sound. This baby has been featured with such artists as John McVie of Fleetwood Mac, Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath, and Chris Squire from Yes.

Durability and Mobility

Weighing in at 165 pounds, this beastly cab is built like a tree trunk, but that doesn't mean it has to be immobile like one. Your SVT-810E bass cab comes with a tilt-back handle bar and protective skid rails for easy transport. You'll be able to set this baby up in no time for sound check without any unnecessary heaving. Dual 1/4" and Speakon inputs/outputs means that your connecting cables will be secure and ready to project your signal reliably every time.

Product Description

The world-renowned Classic Series Cabinets are synonymous with bass enclosures and the sound they are expected to produce. From the undeniable tone of the SVT-810E to the unexpected low end of the extended range SVT-410HLF, Ampeg enclosures have set the standard for decades. All enclosures feature dual Neutrik Speak-On and 1/4" input/output jacks. Cabinets using high frequency horns contain a variable level attenuator. To prevent overpowering and damaging the horns, a resistive bulb is wired in series with the horn for protection.

A Workhorse of a Different Color

The Ampeg SVT-810E is the speaker enclosure people mean when they say SVT speaker cabinet. It's all about tone. Other than the color scheme, it is identical to the original SVT-810.

Why eight 10" speakers? Ampeg learned early on that 10" speakers work much more efficiently than fifteens or eighteens -- and if you put eight 10" speakers together, you can move a huge column of air. You'd need five 18" or six 15" speakers to move as much air as the SVT-810E. And they simply wouldn't be able to respond to transient peaks as quickly as Ampeg's tens.

The Ampeg SVT-810E is still manufactured using the same design dating all the way back to 1969. The Infinite Baffle design of these sealed enclosures produces vast amounts of tightly focused bass. That's why you'll find the SVT-810E on stage with such artists as Chris Squire (Yes), Geezer Butler (Black Sabbath), John McVie (Fleetwood Mac), and far too many others to list here. In the world of high performance bass cabs, the Ampeg SVT-810E stands tall and proud.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Here Is Your Dream Cabinet!"
Sound: I've only played my SVT-CL head out of Ampeg cabs, and the 8x10 is simply the best match for the amp. It gives me my dream sound by handling the highs quite nicely wihtout sounding too sharp or caustic; the mids help my bass cut through my guitarist's screaming Marshall; and the lows are enough to handle the heaviest hitting drummers on the planet. Oh, those lows! Turn up as LOUD as you want and you will notice the lows are still clear--not soggy and undefined. This amp will handle whatever you've got, and it doesn't stop delivering. It's sound is BIG, BIG, BIG--you will not get lost amid the blissful chaos you and your bandmates create. They will know you're there--but the 4x10s and even the 6x10s won't let you make that claim. It also records quite well. You can simply put a mic in front of a single speaker and be amazed when you hear the recording. And you will know that you now sound like you think you should sound. With the SVT-CL, this cab reproduces that sound you dream about in your head. A wet dream come true! Feature: Simple. The grab-bar/handle-thing on the back, along with the built-in coasters, make for easy maneuverability. Ease of Use: Never met an Ampeg cab with a sound that sucked. As I mentioned, a big head like the SVT-CL may be too much for smaller cabs to handle; but this cab is designed to handle Ampeg's best heads. Plug in and play. Quality: We keep it in the studio, so the only time we'll ever move it is for gigs. It's solid, heavy, and durable. Value: Worth the price. The top-of-the-line 410 costs just as much as the 810. The 610 is fifty bucks cheaper. Go with the big daddy of them all and be happy. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with support, yet. The Wow Factor: It ain't ugly. Would it appear more appealing dressed in a metal grille with fuzzy carpet instead of cloth and tolex? LISTEN to it and then ask yourself if you care what it looks like. Overall: I have no need for another rig. To me, this one fits my playing perfectly, and it gives me and the band the sound that now plays a big role in defining us. It growls, it roars, it cannot be beat. If it were stolen (how can you lose something this big?), I would die. There's no way I'd play out of a different cabinet.

"the craziest amp in the world"
Sound: beautiful Quality: great Value: even though it is a tad bit on the pricey side, it is well worth it even though it's 165 lbs The Wow Factor: i have it and it is awesome Overall: only for the serious musicians who play quite a bit...but it absolutey sucks to drag it around because of how big it is but that is well worth it to put out the sound you want for at venues. get it if you think you can handle it...
