I aquired a little while back a custom Hiwatt 100W all valve head from an old bassist that has toured with them for many years using custom cabs and EV speakers. I am and have been looking for cabs that I can use with my newly aquired head but need to ask a question (I have searched and not found an answer) What would be ideal specs for a cab (I cant afford custom made, got to go for the mass produced) for a 100W valve head? It is switchable between 8 and 16 ohms, but I havnt seen any 16ohm cabs. I'm currently borrowing Hartke 1x15 and 4x10 (rated 350W I think?) cabs but they fart at anything above the volume being at 7. I know they are cheap cabs, is this why they are farting? I know John Entwistle used to run Sunn 2x15's off his Hiwatt 100 heads, but I cant find any of those anywhere Unfortunatly I'm not in a position where I can try out bass cabs, Music shops don't stock anything bass orientated (other than hartke and behringer it seems) and my head is too heavy to carry in to london (24Kg, not to mention they're a bit arsy if you actualy want to try something) So, as far as I can work out, I need sensitive cabs to get the volume from my low power amp, yeah? something like 100Db@1W/M? but what about wattage? If the cabs are rated too high I'm told they'll just fart, yet the Hartke are rated at 350W and are fine untill I get above 7 on the volume and they seem to be pushed too hard, so do I go for more than 350W? Oh and selling it to buy something else is not an option, it sounds like heaven and was owned by someone who I have looked up to since I started playing bass so Im not selling it to buy a 1kW head Thanks for your help guys and gals.
