    Anyone had any experience with these as of late. i am considering getting one to keep up with an acoustic guitar, and very small kit, and a unamplified singer. this will serve us for doing IMPROMPTU street and park gig's.

    also, i am considering the options b/n the limo (TX50DBE), and the Bass Bus (TXB50). they are essentially the same models, but the limo is more of a PA, and the bus is more basscentric.

    Im thinking of doing the limo, as it provides more flexibility with 2 channels, and hi-loz mic inputs, and speaker range (podcasting). it hass less DSP effects, but i really dont use that many effects. does anyone have any opinions as to why this may or may not be a better choice than the bass bus.

    here are the links:

    I've got a TXB50 coming, so I'll let you know when it arrives in about a week. I had a heck of a time locating one as everyone seems to favor carrying the new TX50DBE. I chose the TXB50 for bass based on specs. The TXB50 has a single 10" with a 2" voice coil and 30oz magnet. The TX50DBE's 10" is a 16oz manget with a 1.5" voice coil and (real useful?) 2" piezo tweeter.

    I've read all the hubbub about the PBJ Briefcase, but one of my intentions is to use this outdoor (with a gelpak or motorcycle battery), like on Saturdays outside the Shibuya train station in Tokyo where a lot of the local talent gathers to perform (unless it's raining... ^_^ )

    so why would a lighter magnet and tweeter sway your decision? (no sarcasm intended, just curious as to your thought process.)

    yeah, i realize the bass bus would be better suited to the bass, but i was thinking a limo would be more versatile in case you had to use it for vocals, music feed, or as a loudspeaker. i also cant find a shop (even in san francisco) that has a bass bus and a limo so that i can a/b them.

    when it comes in, let me know how it works for you. i think a review would be great. (an a/b against a limo would be cool too :D )

    I've watched a bunch of bands performing there over at youtube. That looks like a lot of fun. I love to play outdoors so getting one of those amps would be a great idea. :hyper:

    definitely post a review as soon as you can (if you have time). i believe these cabs have been discontinued.
