    Hi everybody,
    I'm currently using a Harley Benton BA5110C combo (remember that "promethean clone"...) for most of the gigs I do, and I'm thinking about buying a 112 cab and using it with the head of the combo, you know it's detachable.
    Do you guys think I would find a noticeable difference if I do it? I just sometimes think I would like to have a little more volume or deep end, but for me it's very important to keep on using a light and easy to transport amp, so I don't want anything bigger than a 112.
    Thank you!

    Adding more speaker surface is the easiest way of increasing the volume output of your rig, so I'd go for it. Should help with a bit more low end as well.

    Thank you so much, maybe I'll get a Fender Rumble 112, or save more money for a MarkBass New York

    Yes, you would hear a significant difference. It's not only surface area. It's also Xmax. The combined product is displacement. Forget about a Rumble or MarkBass. Do it the right way. Look to one of the many 12/6 (12/6/1) variations or a Bill Fitzmaurice Jack, Jack Lite, or Simplexx.

    What is the RMS power at 8 ohms of the detachable head?

    Thanks for all the responses,

    250w 8ohm and 500w 4ohm

    I didn't know them, I live in Spain, and don't know if I could get them here or how much they cost

    Good! Get the best 112 or lightweight 210 you can find. The Markbass cabinets are good, but expensive over here. Can you find a used Markbass cabinet?

    Yes, also here, a little bit more of what I want to spend, I'm thinking if I should do the effort, and you're right, second hand could be a great idea, I have no rush, so still in the process of searching and comparing, I enjoy it :)
    EBS CL112 looks OK also, the only think is that it delivers only 94db, that sounds strange.
