Hello my fellow bass enthusiast I have a question and I'm new to the forum. My question is this I play a peavey Pro bass 500 head through a carvin 10 RL 8 ohm cabinet. Before running my line into my head I run that line directly from my bass to my BBE optical compressor into my sans amp DI. It seems whenever I play at loud volumes my speakers sounds like they are bottoming out. I'm playing with the Lakeland 5501 and I realize this is a pretty high powered bass guitar but even with my equalizer set flat and my volume on my amp turn only about halfway I still get this bottoming out sound coming from my cab. I'm not sure what the problem is so any input would help do I need more speakers or do I just need a different amp head head or just need to tweet the controls. Any info would help as I know there are a lot of seasoned veterans on the talk Bass forum. I'm looking into buying a single 12 inch extension cab ot maybe a 2x10 cab. Like I said any info or input would help greatly thank you.
