Hey i'm new to the forum and have a few questions i was hoping you guys could help me with. First off i play a thumb 5 in a metal band with two other guitar half stacks, so i need something loud/clean and capable of handling the low tuning. I played some ampeg stuff and i really like the sound of it and this is what i am leaning toward for my new stuff. I am considering either one of two combos, one 8x10 with a 2x15 or one 6x10 with a 1x18, first off what do you guys think would sound better, cut through better and also be able to produce the low notes the best. Secondly i need something to power this, i was thinking along the lines of the 4-pro or going with a power amp and preamp setup what do you think? Who's got the best power amps on the market right now? I would like to hear your guys thoughts on all this stuff.
