    ok...here is what you are going to hear...I will probably say it nicer than some


    What music do you play?

    How large are the places you play?

    Where are you from(to determine availability)?

    What is your budget?

    Your link on your first message isn't working, so I'm not sure exactly which ashdown head you're looking at. I don't see a 450w ashdown listed on Music123.

    I would look here and take one of these deals that include the ashdown head Avatar Speakers

    For what you stated I would pick up Avatar's single 12 cabinet(or 15 depending on what you like) and their 2x10

    Here's a good discussion on the 12 and 2x10 setup http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=217335

    Are you in US or Canada...I"m not sure whether Dave(avatar) ships outside North america.

    Its hard to imagine a metal band in a coffee house. I could imagine a metal band in a pizzeria though.

    Ive just got a Ashdown ABM 300 head and have got a Peavey 115BVX 4 ohms 1x15 cab. 400 watts
    Its the cheapest good make that i could find in 4 ohms that would match my ABM and is small enough to fit in my drummers car and should be ok for your needs
