This is the speaker cabinet for the bass player who demands the best of both worlds—deep, tight bass, with a generous helping of definition and top-end clarity. The SVT-610HLF delivers massive bass, thanks to six 10” speakers that work together to move a tremendous amount of air. You’d need three 18” or four 15” speakers to move as much air as the SVT-610HLF! And they simply wouldn’t be able to respond to transient peaks as quickly as these tens. The SVT-610HLF also delivers superb top end, thanks to its 1” horn driver, strategically crossed over at 5kHz. The Ampeg SVT-610HLF is the ideal speaker enclosure for the modern multi-string bass player seeking superior power handling capability and true high-fidelity performance.

Comments about Ampeg SVT610HLF 6x10" Bass Speaker Cabinet:
The SVT610HLF - 6X10 is the speaker cabinet for the bass player who demands the best of both worlds—deep, tight bass, with a generous helping of definition and top-end clarity. It is in fact, a smaller version of its big brother the SVT810E - 8X10 yet more efficient IMHO. Now some will insist that you should pay the extra $50 and get the 8X10. However the ports & horn driver on the 6X10, (not available on the 8X10), more than compensate for those extra 2 tens and make the 6X10 MORE bass inclined.
That said, your first question, if you already do not know, is, "What? 10" speakers for a bass cabinet… why everyone knows you need at least fifteens (15"), or better yet, eighteens (18") speakers to get that great bass sound! "
Answer: WRONG! And if you do not trust "me", you surly must trust Ampeg, ("The Godfather" of bass equipment!)
Fact is, Ampeg learned early on that 10" speaker's work much more efficiently than fifteens or eighteens - and if you put six 10" speakers together, you can move a huge column of air. Thus, you would need three 18" or four 15" speakers to move as much air as the SVT610HLF! And they simply would not be able to respond to transient peaks as quickly as these tens.
The SVT-610HLF also delivers superb top end, from its 1" horn driver, strategically crossed over at 5 kHz. Okay, enough "geek info"!
Bottom line: If you are considering the SVT810E - 8X10, or other cabs with fifteens, or eighteens… "Look before you leap!" As I highly RECOMMEND you plug into a SVT610HLF "before you leap" into making a decision. I promise you will not be disappointed!
And remember… for the all around best bass speaker sound, "tens are the choice", because "bigger is not always better".
