Rating and Reviews: Ampeg Portaflex PF800

When you need to be heard, this 800-watt stack will not disappoint. The PF800 head crafts the tone, while the ported 4x10" and 1x15" cabs add girth.

Overall: Great amp and cabinets. The 15" cabinet gives you nice low end that a 15" speaker can but yet it is still tight and clean. The 4-10 cabinet with the horn covers frequencies from low to up high. It gives you the rapid transient the 10s can along with the crisp hi's. It is very responsive and tight as well. The cabinet matches perfectly to the 15" cabinet. The 800 watt head gives you plenty of headroom. The eq is great and I like the onboard compressor with a little dialed in. It really sweetens the sound. Used the rig for the first time last week end and was absolutely blown away with it. My fellow band members all complimented on how good it sounded. Plus it is easy to move around, not a back breaker.Great rig Ampeg.

Overall: This stack is amazing. Used it first time at a gig 2 days after receiving this monster. We blew out a sub so they were relying on my new Ampeg to cover without going in the mix. Not a problem. This thing pumped the building. The features on this amp stack are all you will ever need. EQing, compression and booste buttons are easy to figure out and really enhance a good tight sound. This system is built for the long haul, although I highly recommend the covers to protect the handsome look of the speakers. I haven't needed support yet, although I've had smaller Ampeg amps in the past and never needed support. The sound blew everyone in the band away due to not being in the mix. It covered the room nicely. If you have a five string, it will handle that Low B with a vengeance. Rumbled the rafters. I paid a great price for what I got, and using zZounds just makes it easy to pay as you pay. I've bought $10K in musical equipment and never had a problem with payment plans or ordering problems. Received the unit 2 days after the order, with free shipping.

Overall: This is a very nice rig! I bout the head with two cabinets. One is the 4x10 cabinet. Which is a monster! Surprisingly huge on the bottom end. My favorite though, is the 1x15. It does so much for my needs alone. I use both cabinets though. The 15 by me, and the 4x10's by the drummer. This works out great. Stacked together? Not sure how that sounds.. Haven't tried that out yet. These cabinets are both light weight for wht they do. The whole rig is easy to move. I am very satisfied with the quality, the price i paid for the rig, and for the great ecperience with zZounds. The only thing remotely to complain about, was that one cabinet came in two whole days after the first one did. No big deal.. On to my next transaction with these guys. I am happy to be doing business with you guys.

Overall: Bought this Stack after playing with it in my local Guitar Center and I am not disappointed in the least. This thing has a big booming sound that is very clean and with plenty of headroom to spare and I have only played it through the 4 X 10. I will be hooking up the entire package tomorrow to hear how it sounds. The ZZounds staff is incrediably patient and friendly and most importantly helpful. They were able to arrange for FedEX to hold this at my local facility to keep everything safe. Looking forward to the first performance with this! This is a plug and play and it took no time at all to dial in a sound I like.

Overall: FedEx dropped it off this morning, thrilled. Ampeg has never let me down. If you know the brand, you don't need my review to know what it does for your sound. Those cabs are nice and light ( nothing like my 810's ) well built, punchy, crisp, warm like butter, cuts thru the mix...what else is there? OH...they look great. Doesn't take much to get the sound you want.
