Greetings! First off, thank you to those who help me out with this. I was referred to this site from another person. They told me there is a vast amount of knowledge in this forum. Currently, I play a Hartke3500 head with a Black Widow 2x15 Cabinet. I like it, but it doesn't seem to get the punchy highs I hear from other bass players. The bottom end is tremendous. I now have a chance to pick up an Ampeg 8x10 cabinet to replace the 2x15's. Do you think the Hartke can power this cab? I played on it at the music store, but I was not able to put it through a full test. I really want it, but I am not looking forward to the task of moving it around. I got some amazing lows out of it. I play an Ibanez 5-string. The other option I have is to purchase an Ampeg BA210 combo. It is 200 watts. I played on this as well, and it sounded amazing! I could not believe how nice it was. I am just afraid I would be disappointed with the reduction in wattage. Would this play loud enough for a band? We have a guitar player with a 4x12 cabinet and some kind of Peavey amp, and our drummer is like most.....he pounds loudly on his drums. Also, could I add a 1x15 cabinet to it to add some lows? I am new at the gear info. Is a 200 watt combo adequate? I play in a rock cover band. We cover bands like Incubus/Green Day/Puddle of Mudd/3 Doors Down/7 Mary 3. My 2x15 cab is plenty loud. I often get asked to turn it down. From what I have learned, watts do not always equal volume. It is more about the speakers than the watts, right? I realize I need a certain amount of watts to start with, but can I get good sound from the BA210 in a band setting? I think I am starting to repeat myself, so I will shut up and listen.
