Ampeg SVT410 HE vs HLF?

Hey guys, I'm in the market for a bass cab and have been emailing back and forth with a few people to buy one used. I've got it narrowed down to two but have limited experience in the area, though I'm pretty sure either one would be a great deal.

One guy is offering an svt410he for 300,the other guy is offering the hlf for 350. I have read a few online reviews and the general consensus seems to be that though the he is slightly more portable, on its own it sounds a bit thin. The hlf ways a couple pounds more but has a better low end to it and is more suited to be used on its own.

I'm sure I'd be happy with either, and I'll just be using them to play small local shows occasionally, but do you guys think it would be worth paying the little bit extra for the hlf? Or is the difference between the two a bit exaggerated in reviews? Sorry for any typos and formatting, issues, I'm on my phone right now.

Thanks guys

You'll probably get more and better answers in the bass forum- most of us in here are guitar players

Oops! Always thought GG&A Was for all amp stuff; bass and guitar. I'll try posting in the bass forum, thanks.

+1

I thought the HLF had bigger low-end. It also has the tilt-back handles and casters. I don't remember if the 410HE had them.

Try to find a MarkBass cab. IMO they crap all over the Ampegs - and they weigh nothing.

I haven't looked into those at all, I'll see if I can find one!

My bass player has the Mark 610. Unbelievably good thing. Cuts through any mix. Really huge sound. Has that Ampeg style built in trolley arrangement too. The thing is so easy to move around. It's so light that it never ceases to amaze me. He fits it into the back of one of those little girly Hyundai bubble cars.
My only criticism is that the tolex is flimsy. Really well installed, has that Italian suit look to the finish but they should have used heavier tolex. I can see myself having to retolex it for him before long.

Now, his question was which of the two Ampegs to get, not which cab to get from the huge market.

Go with the HLF, you won't regret it. Sounds good with amplifiers from 100w to 600w, is easy to transport (trolly built in) easily moved between two people and looks badass next to a 412. And it holds resale value better.

yeah the description of GG&A sort of suggests all electronic-type questions go in here, whether for bass or guitar (and maybe that was the original aim), but all the bass players hang out in the bass forum more than here. there are a few people who hang out in both (a few of the bass forum regulars, like ippon and fatalgear and maybe a couple of others), but generally if you have a bass question (either the instrument or the amp or effects etc.) you should ask in the bass forum since the bassists hang out there, and if you have a guitar gear-related question, the guitar players hang out in here.

I just sold my SVT 410HLF on Saturday for $250. Great cabs, sound huge and the handle and wheels make it far more portable than any 4x12 guitar cab I've ever owned.
