    I was just reading over the specs of the Bag End 15 inch cabs and realized that they only handle 200 watts RMS. Is this an underrated number or do they really break up if you pump more than 200 watts into them? I ask this because 200 watts is so low an RMS compared to 15's from other bass amp companies.
     
  2. From what I've heard, the tings are so efficient that you don't really need more power than that to crank em.

    I have one and i couldnt need any more power (granted im not playing stadiums or anythin). The thing can play LOUD for how big it is. I know the bass player for fiona apple and i think he just uses 2 of the 15's and he plays VERY loud
