PF-115HE Bass Speaker Cab
Drawing from the classic design of Ampeg's legendary Portaflex cabinets, the PF-115HE bass speaker cabinet combines vintage styling with the performance of a modern 450W cab.
The PF-115HE's 15" Eminence driver pushes out true Ampeg tone along with a 1" high-frequency driver with a level control for dialing in the perfect amount of highs.
Best of all, since it's a Portaflex, you can attach any PF Series head to the top, flip it inside and hit the road Ampeg style.
Ampeg's Portaflex PF-500 bass head delivers a staggering 500W of power in an ultra-compact design providing pure Ampeg tone in an extremely portable package. Precise tone controls and gig-friendly input/output options provide ultimate flexibility. Pair it with Ampeg's PF Series flip-top cabinets for the vintage styling and portability of the iconic Portaflex originals.
The tone stack on the PF-500 provides an extensive array of tone controls for shaping your sound. Bass, mid, and treble controls come standard with a 5-position mid switch for finding the perfect midrange level for your sound. Ultra Hi/Lo boosts add even more on-the-fly options, and an onboard compressor keeps your levels in check and your tone punchy and tight.
At the gig or in the studio, the PF-500 is ready for action with a balanced direct out with pre/post-EQ selector, -40dB pad, and ground lift. An effects loop with dedicated mix control is footswitchable with the optional Ampeg AFP2 2-button switch.

Comments about Ampeg PF-500 Portaflex and PF-115HE Stack:
On the issue of recommending The AMPEG PF 500 Portaflex , I would have to say NO! The First amp lasted for 23 months and died (Google: PF500 Blue Fault Light No Fan see how many hits you get). Six months late, the same for it's NEW UNIT replacement. To top it off LOUD Technologies, (i.e., Mackie, AMPEG) are difficult to deal with and don't respond well to customer claims. So, I won't be buying any future equipment from them.
I'm just really disappointed by companies not standing behind their products, in general. Sadly 90% of the gear we buy is junk from day one. I'd just like to find one reliable manufacturer who treats their customers like gold.
