Ampeg Expands Portaflex Series With New Cabinets

Ampeg PF-115LF Bass CabinetAmpeg has unveiled a new pair of bass cabinets in their Portaflex series called the PF-115LF and the PF-410LF. While the series previously had a 1×15˝ cabinet, the 4×10˝ is a first for the series.

Both of the new cabinets are built with a 15mm poplar ply enclosure, covered in black diamond tolex with a vintage B-15 grill cloth. The new models also differ from the rest of the series by including shelf porting for additional low frequency extension.

Handling up to 400 watts, the PF-115LF gets a more vintage tone than its predecessor by leaving out the compression tweeter and including only the 15˝ Eminence driver.

Weighing in at 73.4 pounds, the PF-410HLF has a power rating of 800 watts at 8 ohms. In addition to four 10˝ Eminence drivers, it carries a 1˝ HF compression driver with an L-pad level control.

The Ampeg PF-115LF and PF-410HLF will become available in the second quarter of 2012 with MSRP’s of $489.99 and $769.99, respectively. For more, check out the Ampeg website.
