Ampeg extends its industry-dominating Classic Series cabinet line with two new models – The SVT-112AV and SVT-212AV. Both feature custom 12-inch drivers from Eminence and represent the first time Ampeg has offered a bass cabinet with 12-inch drivers in nearly a decade.
“There is something amazing about using 12-inch drivers on a bass cabinet,” remarks Ampeg Product Manager Zane Williams. “They are the perfect size to bridge the gap between the fast transient response players want and the rich low end they expect from an Ampeg SVT cab.”
Both new cabinets are built using rugged 15mm poplar ply and deliver on the vintage Ampeg look, featuring AV Tolex and grille cloth. The classic black grille is available separately from Ampeg for those that want to pair the cab with an SVT-CL or other Ampeg head. With a choice of a single or dual 12’’ design, both with a 1” compression driver, the new SVT cabs provide even more possibilities when building an Ampeg bass rig.
Rated at 300W RMS power handling at 8 ohms, the SVT-112AV is a great match with PF-350, Micro-VR or for integrating with other Ampeg cabinets into a single rig. The SVT-212AV is a 4 ohm cab rated for 600W RMS. This is perfect for the all-new V-4B along with other heads like the SVT-CL, SVT-VR or PF-500.
“With these new more compact and lightweight cabinets in the Classic line, creating a modular Ampeg rig just got easier,” concluded Williams.
The new Ampeg SVT-112AV and SVT-212AV join the other Ampeg Classic Series cabinets and will be available in September, 2013. The SVT-112AV will have a U.S. MSRP of $699.99. The SVT-212AV will have a U.S. MSRP of $979.99. For more information on Ampeg Classic Series cabinets visit www.ampeg.com/products/classic.
