James of Von Saint Design is a bass lover like the rest of us, but even deeper his passion lies in vintage Ampeg SVT gear.
He sent us Parts 1 and 2 of a 4-part You Tube series he made about the classic equipment.
The Infinite Baffle design of these sealed enclosures produces vast amounts of tightly focused bass. The new Ampeg SVT-VR is a vintage reissue of an early 1970s “Blue-Line” SVT head.
The preamp stage, power section, and even rocker switches emulate the exact signal path, tone, and vibe of the original ...
Youd need five 18 or six 15 speakers to move as much air as the SVT-810E!
And they simply wouldnt be able to respond to transient peaks as quickly as our tens.
Until such time that enough information is available to date 1970s Ampegs by serial number, the features of the amps from this period can be used and compared to the following table.
The Ampeg SVT-810E is a 2x400W RMS 8x 10" bass cabinet. 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.
This is the speaker enclosure people mean when they say SVT speaker cabinet. Other than the color scheme, it is identical to the original SVT-810. 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.Not enough information was available to the authors to determine year of manufacture by serial number.An added variable is that during the Magnavox years, Ampeg may have used separate serial number systems for each model or for models that shared the same chassis like the VT-22 and V-4.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.
