this cabinet really rocks. i had always wanted to play one of these but could never find one to try. i found one at a local store and compared it to an ampeg 8 10 and it was about the same volume but was a lot deeper and had better highs and an overall better tone. then the salesman walked me around the back of the cabinet to show me that just the top of the cab was plugged in. after getting all 8 10's working it was awesome. hands down blew away the ampeg. it kind of sounds in comparison to the ampeq 410 hlf x 2. trust me im not ragging on ampeq because this is the first product of mine to not be ampeg. the 8 10 and the 4 10hlf; i have both...rated 9 for value because it is a bit pricy but worth it. take out a second mortgage on the house if you are a serious bass player. rated 9 overall because this beast is heavy.better have a strong roadie or two...thanks

Best amp I've ever played through

By loren stidham

from Pensacola beach, Florida

I've played huge gigs with this swr megaliath 8x10 cabinet and its simply the best so good I bought another one so I cover the stage with sweet clean bass...I'm a solo bassist so I wanted the stage to be on fire with bass

My bass amp for 14 years

By Joe Cox

from Baltimore, MD

I've owned this amp for 14 years. Still runs solid, vibrates my foundation down to the woodwork paired with a SM900 I bought used. Ive played this gig on the road, it has held up over the years. I've used it for 5 string and 4 string bass. Compared to ampeg's ive used in the past, the megoliath blows them out of the water. It cuts through 2 half cab guitarists no problem, and over drums in a small room.

Holy Grail

By mrdominoe

from Ann Arbor, MI

I was lucky enough to snatch a 2002 model used for $600. Of course, I though it's a great value considering the regular $1500 price tag, but then I took it home. This thing is an absolute colossus. It's tight, but has enough boom to shake the walls, with enough sizzle to cut through pretty much anything. I would have gladly payed the full $1500 if I would have got it new. I've been through around 10 cabinets, but this one is going to stick

By mr.juiceman

from CA

I own two (2) of the Megoliath's. I slit them, one each side of the drum riser. I have Ashdown EVO 500RC chrome preamp, BBE 462, CREST 7001 power amp. AMAIZING!! I used to have Ampeg SVT. These SWR'S ROCK!

SWR Megoliath

By Mobasses

from Tulsa, OK

I have been using this cabinet for over 4 years every weekend. I have blown 1 speaker but other than that it has been incredible. Easier to move around than the 2 4x10 cabinets I previously used. Nice skid rails, kick plate and handle. SWR thought of everything here. Tone is incredible. PLENTY of bottom end!!!!

good but not a bargin

By bass with grace

from Phladelphia

I like it. I find being able to use it stereo or monon a nice option, but if you are not planning on a custom set up you would probably be better off with something cheaper. I have gigged it 14 times and have not had any problems. I would say over all it is pretty nice but somewhat uneccessay. My bandmates hate helping me move it up stairs. yes the wheels are nice.

I like it

By Thumper-xQZ.S

from Central California

I bought this cab before fender took over swr. I have had great luck with it and find it is like having 2-4x10 with options. I am happy with the sound it produces and it gives me a nice back massage when I turn up the amp.

My FAvorite Cab

By BrandonB

from Tulsa ok

I pre ordered one of these before they came out in 2000 and once I got it I havnt used anything else. Being able to run it as 1 8x10, 2 4x10s or 1 4x10 makes it the most versatile cabinet out there. I personally run it as 2 4x10s through different pre amps and an ampeg power amp and it sounds amazing. The kick plate, rails, and casters make it quote easy to move too. Forget the Ampeg 8x10 classic Megoliath is the way to go. Mine is an orignal SWR not a post Fender so I cannot speak for the new ones.

Megoliath is the one we've been waiting for!

By Musicman6020

from Stafford, VA

To all bassists out there, this is the ultimate cab. With the mono/stereo option and the tweeter control for the top half of the cab, the Megoliath gives all the flexibility you will ever need. Plenty of headroom, and BOOM! Never again will my bandmates say "Turn it up bro"!
