Rig overhaul help.....
Alright check this out...
After a year of research and pondering, I've constructed my rig...Hartke HA5000, 4.5Xl cab on top of a 115Xl cab. Love the tone, punch....all of that. I'm having problems with the head, bi-amp button is all kinds of f***ed up. Sometimes I get a crackle on attack of any note, sometimes really poor output of the 4.5Xl, sometimes everything is fine.
New research indicates that I have very few options when it comes to bi-amped heads (which I like because it sounds great and it tends to quiet the "phase issue" nazis). I really like the simplicity of the Hartke LH1000, and it's bi-amped. Here is the issue, my 115Xl is only rated for 200W, even at 8 ohms I'm going to send to much power.
So here's the question: Can I change the speaker on the 115Xl and increase the wattage of the cabinet? or are there other components that would have to be changed also? Can I even get a higher wattage 15in speaker from Hartke? (other than a hydrive speaker)
