I know nothing about a sound guys job so maybe you guys can give me some advice. I use a tb-153 and I use a little bit of the tweeter for my tone. According to how everyone describes these cabs, and I do hear this when there is a backlined bass cab, it doesn't color the tone of the amp being used. Kind of like a big studio monitor. should this cab be mic'd because I use the tweeter, or am I forever to be DI'd by whatever sound guy I come across(I use a gk 700rbii, they run it through the amps di). Which at that point makes me using the tweeter useless? Should I spend the cash on an akg d112, bring it to my shows and just tell the sound guy, "here, this is how we play the bass tonight"
