That combination should kick some ass volume wise.

Try going to SWR's website and see if they have the manual online for the amp and/or some suggested EQ settings.

In any case if you set all the controls to their neutral settings, you should get a decent tone out of it. Then you can adjust from there.

It is possible the equipment has mechanical problems. Don't buy a used amp if you have any doubts about its mechanical worthiness. If it's been rented out a lot it has probably been abused.

Good luck with the amp search.

: hey there!

: I just rented a used bass amp to see if it's good for me and possibly buy it ... do you think this is a good combination?

: SWR SM400 head

: AMPER 410 speaker

: so far, it's not been as good as I expected, especially as far as volume and overall loudness of the thing goes. I don't know if it depends on me not having mastered the EQ yet, or it's just the combination of the two...

: please let me know. I'm not an expert on this, so I could use any info you would give me.

: thanks a lot!

: andy
