    Hi All,

    Do you know the 1001 nights book ? Well, here I'll ask for a different fantasy exercise...

    Here the homework for the good will TBer to answer, what rig would you come up if those are the specs:

    - about 1000 W
    - between 2500 and 4000 $
    - head + cabinet(s) OR pre-amp + power-amp + cabinet(s)

    So... is your fantasy at work ?

    Thanks a lot for the suggestion !

    Hmmm.... I'll go with an Epifani Quest II preamp, a Crown XLS 602 power amp, and a 4 ohm Avatar B10 Neo.... Oh wait, thats not fantasy, thats what I own!:p

    Easy, Bergantino IP310 or IP212 with or without your preamp of choice. :D

    Easy. Marshall 1960AV with a Marshall 1960 4x12... Oh wait... this is a bass forum... How about a direct in to the PA at Madison Square Gardens?

    That's an easy one for me, too. Euphonic Audio iAmp 800 head, and 2 x 4-ohm NL210 cabs. ALthough I must say I'm tempted by the ultra-modular rig of 4 x 8-ohm CXL-112L cabs with the same amp ... ;)

    DB750 + D-410XST + D-410XLT. Both cabs 4-ohm for 975 watts into 2 ohms.

    Aguilar db750, db 410 (that schweet silver grille on the classic black model, mmmm)....both somehow made super lightweight.

    There's my fantasy at work.

    DB750 into an NV215 and NV610.
  10. This is the stuff I got allready:

    Acoustic Image Focus 2R series III (1000 W on 2 ohm)
    Sansamp RBI pre-amp
    Aphex 204 Aural Exciter

    2 x 2x12" celestion cabs build by a professional
    Avatar SB112 Neo.

    Within two months the heavy 2x12" cabs will be replaced by a Schroeder 1212 light.

    Cannot wait .....

    How about the new modified Glockenklang Heart-Rock @ 1000W/2,7Ohms in combination with the new 6-Box @ 1200W/2,7Ohms :D

    Loud, precise, articulate, light:

    The new Epi 902 Stereo (2000 watts) and two 310UL's... that would be a rig! ( and since the new 902 can be run with only once cab using one 'side' of the amp... it would also be a great smaller gig rig also).

    or.... my 'big gig' rig... Glock Heart Rock (due in next week) into a 4ohm Epi410UL or Schroeder 21012Light.... a wonderful lightweight (even with the HR, the entire rig is still only about 90 pounds and in two pieces... so each piece is very light... no wrestling with a 90 pound cab, etc.) and what I assume will be a very, very clean, articulate sound.

    My current head - Glockenklang HeartCore into a Berg 322! I'm currently using it with 2 Aggie GS112's - great sound in a small package.

    Aguilar DB680 - $1500
    Stewart World 1.2 - $750
    Aguilar GS412 - $1100

    $3350. I'd rather do the DB728 power amp, but if I *need* 1000 watts I might as well go light with the Stewart.

  17. DB750 over 2 GS412's. You know, just because I could.

    1100 watts per side. Probably over budget. But oh so good.

    If I have roadies, IP310. Done.

    If not, then I'd have to go with 4 EA NL-210's, a CA9, and an amp head of choice. That way I could use all four cabs and the CA9 with the preamp from the head for "big stuff" and the head and 1-2 cabs for small stuff. Done. I'd have to struggle over which amp head for a while...

    If I have to stay within 1000 watts, I'm going with a TD-1 into a Bergantino IP-310.

    If I can go larger, I'll go with Ken's Epi setup he listed...Epi 902UL into a pair of 310UL's...I can knock down walls with that!
