Product Description

The Ampeg SVT-810E has absolutely no problem bringing the thunder without getting muddy!
With incredible designs delivering the undeniable tone of this SVT-810E, Ampeg enclosures have set the standard for decades. This 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 inch speakers? Ampeg learned early on that 10 inch speakers work much more efficiently than fifteens or eighteens - and if you put eight 10 inch speakers together, you can move a huge column of air. You'd need five 18 inch or six 15 inch 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 these tens.

The 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.

  • Tilt Back Handle Bar
  • 1/4 inch and Neutrik Speakon Jacks

The History of AMPEG...
In 1946, Everette Hull, an acomplished pianist and bass player, organized a partnership with Stanley Michaels under the name Michaels-Hull Electronic Labs. Their mission was to produce a new microphone pickup that Hull designed. The pickup was fitted on the end of an upright bass and was dubbed the Amplified Peg or Ampeg for short.

In 1949, Hull became the sole proprietor and changed the name of the company to the Ampeg Bassamp Company. Since that time, Ampeg has produced some of the music industry's most innovative and memorable products, satisifying the needs of musicians all over the world. Many of these products feature incredibly unique features and performance capabilities resulting in six U.S. patents under the Ampeg brand name.

In 1960, a design engineer by the name of Jess Oliver created a combo amplifier with a chasis that could be inverted and tucked inside the speaker enclosure, protecting the inner workings and increasing the portability of the the amp. Nicknammed the Portaflex, this amplifier became the standard in bass combos throughout the 60's and 70's.

Also in the early 60's, Ampeg was the first company to incorporate reverb in an amplifier. The Reverbrocket preceded Fender's Vibroverb (often thought of as the original) by nearly 2 years. In 1969, Ampeg set out to design the most powerful amplifier ever made. At that time, 50-watt amps were considered more than adequate. 100-watt amps were considered plenty loud. Ampeg, however, not only harnessed 300 watts of pure tube power but actually created a new valve (tube) technology - Super Valve Technology, or the SVT. Now the most sought after stage amplifier, the SVT has proven its road worthiness on stages around the world.

In 1986, St. Louis Music, Inc purchased Ampeg and continues the tradition of making quality, musician-satisifying products. The current series of Ampeg Classic models, Pro Series products, B Series heads and combos as well as the updated re-issue Diamond Blue Series are among the latest in the evolution of the professional, innovative and feature laden amplifiers available.

Top notch quality
What is your opinion of this product?
It’s the fridge!!! There’s a reason why you see this bass cab on nearly every back line across the world. I haven’t had a single problem with it. I use a 500 watt orange head and drive these speakers very hard and never a problem. It’ll take a beating and never damage the wheels or Tolex. If you’re thinking about it just go ahead and do it. You won’t regret it.

1/3 Of the perfect bass rig
Again, this thing is sturdy. It's one of the few cabs you'll see still gigging in twenty years and still sounding amazing. The band I played in for a while had one of these that was about ten years old and sounded amazing. I had to buy one for myself. And mine has treated me just as well(although I've only had it for a few months)
I love that you can run the bottom four and top four speakers independantly. It has saved me so much trouble being able to go from small places running it as a 4x10(protip:use the top four to carry the sound a little farther) to the bigger badder places running it as it was meant to be.
This baby is loud and proud. I run an Ampeg SVT-4 Pro to it and it is simply perfect.
I play a little bit of everything. I'm mainly a metal head, but I also constantly play jazz, classical, blues, and classic rock and every tone I throw at it with my SVT-4 is mind blowing.
This cabinet looks amazing right out of the box. The tolex rips pretty easily when heavily gigged on, but you'll only damage the beauty, not the beast. This thing is sturdy.

better sound than looks
this was the most serious rock club in the state. many B bands come through this was house equipment live bands 7 nights some 4-5 per night. this was as used as the girls walking the street outside and sang better than my dreams
eight tens----- thought it was soo country until----
my sound is some low smooth sliding to fast slapping punk and this did it all better than I could imagine
wanted Hartke 4x10 and1x15 until that epic night
Not muddy, Not lacking in spank, slap, bottom(!) ---did everything better than I guessed anything could and our style is very diverse
too many stage lights to see anything
had to use the club's cabs with our heads

WHY MY CABNET CAN BEAT UP YOUR CABNIT
Quality control is really the only thing that any company has. After 135 shows and two tours, mine have never let me down. From the studio to the stage, I have recorded and toured with nothing but Ampeg for only two reasons, Tone and Dependability. In the end there really isn't anything else.
It is a strait forward cab with all the features you need to be able to rock out and knock dead the audience with the wall of sound low end that every bass players wants. All of this comes with a price. Its Heavy! 140 lbs, not the portable easy to move combo amp that you just throw in the back seat of your Honda Civic. I tour with two of these and it take time and a strong back to get them to stage.... But it is worth it. Plug one in and you will change your mind about the weight.
Pure ROCK. While I have known a ton of guys that use these for country, pop punk, and jazz, to me it seems a waste but to each his own. This is a cab meant for laying down the low end and competing with the largest stacks of guitars that can be thrown at you. From Mudvayne, Alice in Chains, Rage Against the Machine, to The Saints of Pain, and just about every other band that kicks xxxx in the bass department uses one of these. Turn on a record that you have loved the bass sound on in the last 30 years and you are really hearing one of these.
It is a set it and forget it item. I have my personal sound dialed in for this cab, and when I play clubs with aback line with it,,,, it is a personal sigh of relief. No worries about if it will be a good sound night or not. Everything will take care of it self with the might of AMPEG behind you.
Dark, and growly with more xxxx then any cab made. You can go from crushing lows to smooth highs with out one worry about " Will this cabinet handle the changes?" Two albums, Two tours, and 130 shows, can't be wrong, this cab has seen every stage condition imaginable, and it rocked them all!
It is a solum tower of black with a matte finish that has a take no prisoners look. Working on every stage setting imaginable, the look is burned into your brain as the look of your favorite guitar. With that being said, there is a complaint to be made about Ampeg it is that they are still using Tolex and acoustic sounding fabric. Both being equally easy to burn, and scratch. Your grandmother incased her beloved couch in plastic armor then you should be smart enough to buy a live in case.
Crack open the refrigerator size packing carton, plug in your head and favorite bass (thunderbirds my personal fave) turn down the light, strike a rock pose that makes you look like GOD because you are going to be THOR, GOD OF THUNDER. There will be very little dialing but you are going from silence to having to explain to the cops how every bobble on your neighbor curio cabinet got on the floor in one open E.

Last amp I'll buy
Your general opinion of this product.


QUALITY:
Incredible quality, your roadies will tk you for the wheels and the handle. It came in perfect shape, tks AMS!

FEATURES:
Cant go wrong with speak-on jacks, pretty self explanatory plug and play.

EASE OF USE:
Very easy, you do have to use both plugs even on bridge mode. Thats not so clear in the manual but it doesnt take rocket science to figure it out.

VALUE:
Its absolutely worth the price. In the area where I live no one has this tone.

SOUND:
I use it with a Tech 21 RBI rackmount and a Behringer 1500 and the whole house shakes not even half way thru. I can see why so many pros use it. The sound is just classic. Dont be fooled by the fact it doesnt have a horn.
