Hey all, Ok...so I finally sprung for it and got an ART SLA-1. Mainly plan to use it for home theater and such, but it's bridgable into 260 watts (8ohms) and sounds so good. So I figure why not get some extra mileage out of it as a bass power amp, ya know? (Using a rackmount EQ, mixer, and direct box to round out the rig). So here's my delimea. I have set aside $400 for a good speaker cabinent. In general, I play large rooms (think church auditorium) with from 50 to 500 people. So far, my Crate BX-100 (100 watts) has had enough of power for what I want to do. I'm looking for sort of the old school Ampeg tone in a sense, I guess, maybe think of the tone of a Crate BX-100, but with more clarity and deeper bass if that helps any. So I'm needing cabinent reccommendations. I've read all the reviews that I can find, but I'm looking for as much real world info here as I can find. I see that I can get a Hartke 2.5XL or a Hartke 115BXL from American Musical for $299 each. Any opinions on those specific cabinents? I see that they have good bass response, but it doesn't list the +/- of the response, so I'm wondering if it's at something ridiculous like -10db. Looks like I could also get a Peavey 115 BVX in that price range. At the top end of my price range are the Ampeg 115 and the Aguilar 112. I did notice that I can get offerings from both Fender and SWR in that range, but the specs of the Fender Bassman 115 and the Workingman's 115 don't impress me too much as far as the low end is concerned. Any suggestions to sort through these cabinents? I was leaning somewhat towards the Hartke 2.5XL since it seems to have very deep bass response (35hz), but at the same time, am I gonna lose some of my oomph by going with 10's instead of the 15" that I am used to? For that matter, does anyone have solid frequency response specs on a Crate BX-100 (perhaps the Crate really doesn't go all that low anyways and this is kind of a mute issue? Afterall I'm pretty satisfied with it's sound). Any advice is appreciated and sorry for the long thread.
