Why would anyone use such a gonzo title to write a few lines about an ordinary bass guitar cabinet? Especially when it’s from Ampeg who are one of the, if not the biggest supplier of bass amps & cabinets in the world?
Well, because it is extremely hard to gather any information about this very product as even Ampegs own homepage holds no data (sic!) about the SVT-215E. So what are we looking at here?
After all, it came in a case BUT had some undeniable tracks of road-experience on it. So it was a quick guessing that this cab has been going places. But as you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover let’s go straight to sound of it.
- Baltic Birch Plywood
- LF Drivers: 2 x 15” Cast
- Voice Coil: 2.5”
- RMS Power Handling: 400-Watts
- Frequency Response (-3dB): 45Hz-3kHz
- Usable Low Frequency (-10dB): 28Hz
- Nominal Impedance: 4-Ohms
- Sensitivity: 100dB
- Maximum SPL: 129dB
Conclusion: some clarity would be helpful. What we can say is that it’s pretty rare. Not quite as rare the the SVT-GS (Gene Simmons Signature model) of which about only 50 items have been made…
