BH250 + Best Cab with BG250?
I have a BG250 and just bought the BH250 so I could have a light rehearsal and home rig with the BG. I'm looking at TC BC210 (250 watts @ 8 ohms), RS210 (400 watts @ 8 ohms) and Hartke HyDrive 112 (300 watts @ 4-8 ohm with switchable impedance.) I'm really looking at how well matched any of these cabs might be at given wattage and impedance? Sure, I could get a TC BC410 at 4 ohms to go with the BG, but a 250 watt head into a 500 watt cab seems like underpowering.
I assume the head is for rehearsals?
Unless you use the full 4 ohm of the BH, the BG combo will actually be louder and more suited to rehearsals than the head. If you want to use the head for rehearsals you need more speaker area and you really do want to make the head use all the watts it has at its disposal.
That means two 8 ohm cabs or one 4 ohm cab. I'd recommend 2 RS210s or 2 RS212 stacked vertically. This gives you 800w of cab handling meaning you could feasibly use them with a more powerful head. Expensive though. The BC cabs have really low power handling and would be pretty redundant with any amp over 300w.
I'd like to stick with TC stuff, but at 8 ohms, like you say, I'm not going to get the output of the BG. I wish I could get a 250-400 watt 2x10 at 4 ohms to mate with the BH250. If I get two RSs, won't the BH be a little underpowered, even at 4 ohms?
Underpowering is as real as the Easter Bunny. I was considering getting a BH250 and ramming an 810 under it. That would be plenty damn loud.
4ohm 210s are another waste of money IMO. Speaker area gives you volume, not impedence. To be louder you want more drivers which Is why the pair of 210s or 212s are the go in my opinion.
Check out the cab chart at TCs own website.
The big thing that ticks me off is that they don't make the BC410 in 8ohm, otherwise I'd have snapped up two of them and a BH250 already.
I have a BH250 and I just bought a Carvin 15" PS15-4 4ohm speaker and put it in an old custom made cab I had and it sounds great. http://www.carvinguitars.com/products/PS15-4. Only $69 plus $15 shipping. The speaker is Carvin branded but it is made by Celestion. Getting that 4 ohm speaker along with used 15 cab and swap the 8ohm speaker may be your best bet.
I love my BH250 with my SWR 210, what I lan to do is simply add another good 110 for gigs- maybe the Eden Ex110. That way I activate the full wattage, and have a 310 setup that is an easy schlep. That last 10 will be closer to my ear too, since I set my 210 vertical and would put it on top.
If you want to stay with TC Electronic, than 2x RS-112 will give you 4 ohms.
