The best 4x10 hands down!
I've had many cabinets and played through many cabinets. I was always left wanting that something I couldn't find. That was until I played through one of these. The one I played through was several years old. However I loved it so much bought my own. I've heard it said that this cabinet has a muddy low end.
That just isn't true. This cabinet paired with a SVT3 Pro just kicks major back side! Total thunder like the voice of God himself! If you want to be heard and want to cut through in the mix, you need this cabinet. The construction on this thing is absolutely impeccable!
In short, Ampeg got it right!
I didn't even have to question the US made Eminence speakers. Which by the way is one of the reasons I purchased this cabinet over some other ones in the Ampeg line. What I was concerned about was if the tweeter would be shrill sounding as I've heard on many newer production cabinets from various manufactures.
I'm happy to report that it was creamy smooth just like the older unit I played through. It's detailed but not shrill or harsh in any way. (THANK GOD!)
All the 1/4" jacks and Speakon jacks are solid and lock up like a bank vault. The casters are a nice added touch along with the drag handle on the back. Be aware that the dimensions currently posted on the Sweetwater site are a little off. This cabinet is actually 30 3/8" tall!
This is the best 4x10 cabinet I've ever heard or owned. The quality is readily obvious when you see it. But it's not until you play through it that you truly realize why it costs so much. I tried the less expensive Ampeg 4x10 cabinets. Although good in their own right, they don't sound like the Heritage line!
I will never part with this cabinet. Spend the extra money and get the Heritage. It might cost you a little more up front but it will be the last cabinet you will ever need.
Buy once and cry once!
(I wish I would have learned to do that many years ago!)
