George Porter, Jr (The Meters)
"I found on fly dates that the Ampeg SVT line works anywhere in the world I am. I have seen my guitar player go though hell every night with his amp, but the Ampeg SVT always works."

A great-sounding amp is nothing without a great-sounding speaker. That’s why Ampeg builds such a wide variety of high-quality speaker boxes. The new SVT-12HE brings Ampeg tone and power to the stage in a small, portable footprint. But don’t let the small size fool you; the SVT-12HE’s custom 12” driver can handle 300-Watts RMS. And the front-ported baffle pumps out ample low-end, making it the perfect choice anywhere space comes at a premium.
For high-end definition, the Ampeg SVT-12HE features a 1” compression horn driver crossed over at 5kHz. The variable “L-pad” attenuator allows you to dial in just the right amount of high-end to suit your personal style.
The Ampeg SVT-12HE is supremely portable, coming in at a scant 46 pounds. And it’s small; you could easily put three SVT-12HEs in the back seat of a subcompact. The rugged enclosure is constructed of Baltic Birch plywood, a favorite of cabinet builders the world over for its structural integrity and superior tonality. Big where it counts, sound quality and value—the Ampeg SVT-12HE.
