    buy used? an SM400S is one of the best used head bargains out there right now.

    or go preamp/poweramp. A 1000w carvin poweramp is about $400, and then you can pretty much spend as much on a preamp as you want. used peavey and yamaha preamps are good buys on the low end of things, up a little higher i'd recommend a used SWR grand prix- i've seen them go as low as $275. or perhaps, a sansamp bass driver DI used as a preamp?

    what's your budget?
  3. with this encoulsure it limits me to about 4 or 5 hundred, what was that SWR grand prix you were talking about ive never seen one
