Ampeg rolls out three new NEO bass cabs
(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-02-04)
Among the best innovations of the last 10 years for bassists tired of lugging around small cabinets that weigh 80 pounds is the NEO (neodymium) technology that drastically reduces speaker weight. Thanks to NEO, a well-designed and ported 112 bass cab that weighs less than 30 pounds can often put out as much bottom as a 215 cab that weighs three times as much.
Taking advantage of the NEO technology, Ampeg has announced a new line of bass enclosures built to handle high wattage amps like Ampeg's new 1,000- and 2,000-watt SVT-7 & -8 PRO heads. The all-new Ampeg Pro Neo Series enclosures deliver power and tone in an extremely lightweight, ultra-modern package. Each cabinet is tuned to offer maximum tone, punch and bottom.
Designed and assembled in the U.S.A., all models are full-range and come in a variety of speaker configurations, including 4x10"-PN-410HLF, 2x10"-PN-210HLF (pictured), and a single 15" PN-115HLF.
The Ampeg Pro Neo Series will be available worldwide in the first quarter of 2010.
PN-410HLF (64lbs) MSRP: $1539.99
PN-210HLF (44 lbs) MSRP: $1119.99
PN-115HLF (59 lbs) MSRP:$1119.99
