Alright, so this is kind of your typical amp advice thread, but I've noticed a large portion of similar threads were outdated so I'm trying to get some up to the minute advice here. I currently play rock/classic rock covers in a three piece bar band. We play alot of back patio type shows outside. My current rig is: acoustic b200h- hartke410xl- seismic 15. Its fine. Sounds OK. Never have to push it past 11oclock, even if I'm not in the mains. the hartke xl is however becoming a thorn in my side because of size and weight. Neither of my vehicles can carry both cabs and so someone is always stuck carrying one....usually the lighter 15 of course. The 15 is not enough to do a show on its own ( its a cheap 15...its not efficient enough honestly to be loud enough), but it DOES add a noticeable fullness to the 410 alone. Point being.....I'm looking to downsize/ upgrade. I'm GASing for a high efficency 212 and a rh450. I would do just fine with the same cabinet and a solid class d amp (mb500.....or even 200 as that's the power I have now...) But I've also been looking at the TC bg250 that's on sale at GC for 300bucks. if I got this, ran in to my other 15 (or better yet, upgraded that 15) ..... I would have money left over for a G50 wireless. So my situation in a nut shell.... three piece rock band, pa support out front (not good monitors though) , sometimes have to carry with no pa, need lighter equip. budget < $1k The only reason I'm asking this now....and not when income tax comes around, when I actually have a grand..... is the bg250. I'm afraid that if this is a viable option for me, I'm going to miss out on the deal. Should I go that route, or wait till Feb and see if I can get a cab and head with enough left over for a wireless? EDIT: we are a responsible band volume wise. Drummer is solid but not overbearing, guitarist is reserved. We like to be loud enough to know there's a band, but quiet enough to be able to chat a lady up while dancing with her.
