    I just picked this 8 x 10 box up on the weekend, now my garage looks like an Ashdown showroom.

    Is this too big for say, a cafe gig :p?

    That is absolutely beautiful, I'm crying just looking at that.
    How big is the cafe, you see I think anything more than 20 people and you'd struggle to get the volume out of that rig :smug:

    That Ashdown stuff just makes me hungry for more! I just got a MAG 600 for my ABM 610 cabinet and like it. What is that head with the black front?

    Cafe gig? That looks about right. Maybe it will stir their coffee for them and earn you some tips. ;)

    There's no such thing as "too much Ashdown".

    I don't want to burst your bubble, but I don't see an ABM 410H Cabinet 650W 4 x 10 + horn or an ABM 115 Cabinet 300W 1 x 15 anywhere in that picture. If you're truly serious about playing small cafes, then you're going to have to get the equipment that is necessary...

    I mean, say the cafe fills up and there's 10-15 people—how are they ever going to hear you with only one 8x10 and those two other small cabs?? You need to rethink your plan, Stan...

    That's one of the first tests of bass rig worthiness! If your neighbors are happy, your rig is insufficient. Congratulations! :D

    It actually has a chrome front. It's an ABM 500 RC if I'm not mistaken.....

    I haven't used any Ashdown gear personally, but they make some really sexy looking gear. I would display that in my living room.

    Have you ever consider stacking all of them for some king of Babel tower of bass-doom?

    I thought maybe you were from Texas when you said it was a cafe gig. ;)
