Alrighty, I'm interested to hear your suggestions as for new cabs. I'm redoing my rig after its last, and hopefully final, flameout. So far, here's what I've worked out. American Standard Jazz > Line 6 M13 > Tronographic Rusty Box (running in preamp mode) > Crown CA 9 > Who knows?? At the moment, I'm looking at ordering a bass customized 2x15 and a 4x12 from Emperor Cabinets, but I'd like to hear some other ideas. As for style, well, my old band's myspace has some indications, but I'm really looking for versatility. A basic sense of where I'm at in the process: I need quite a bit of speaker area. I do brutal stuff (noise loops, feedback loops, extreme pitchshifting) to my cabs, and it's become apparent that trying to jam all that into a small number of speakers is a BAD idea. I don't really care too much about portability...I should be able to fit pretty much anything into my Escape with the seats down, and we're already gonna be stuck renting a Uhaul truck when we play live. I don't care about weight. I know how to use a hand truck and how to lift with my legs. I'm more interested in things that are less than obvious. I know about Ampeg 8x10s and Mesa Powerhouses...talk to me about Acme, LDS, and other cab makers that are off the beaten path. Those are the ones I can't really try out, so I'd love to hear what their users have to say about them. $1500 is not set in stone, but it's a pretty good guideline. Thanks a ton for your help, and I hope all is well with ya'll.
