Ampeg SVT-810E Cabinet

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.

I've been playing since 1976, and I'm not dead yet. My cabinets of choice have been Acoustic and boogies. I just bought the 810 Classic because I ordered the pf410 and honestly it was small yet not the oomph I need for a classic rock 80's LOUD club band.I drove myself crazy with the Heritage vs Classic question. I bought the Classic because 300 bucks is 300 bucks.. I cannot be happier. Took it out for the first time last night. All night long the oohs and ahs were amazing. punch, tone, I tilted it into the trunk of my Mercury marquis and boom a bungee strap and done. It;s like wheeling in a cart. I know great tone this has it in droves... I play a BBE AB preamp (300 dollars) a yamaha 3500s amp. run the 810 in stereo when I hit my digitech s100 for chorus etc... don't believe the Heritage deal...I'm sure it's great but if 300 bucks can pay some bills don't waste your money. I took my box, covered in a layer of really nice black duct tape and made my own cover...for 30 bucks.... sturdy, no tolex mishaps at all... plus all the gig bags get stowed in it while at the gig. Can't wait to get my accord station wagon up and running to make transport even easier..... thanks zZounds for payment plan too!
