    Anyone out there ever play through a Markbass tte 500 and a Bergantino NV 115? Does that amp have enough juice to push a sealed cab like that??

    Bump - I'm interested to hear about this combo.

    While I have never played that amp, my guess would be no. I've read that the nv115 wants an honest 400 to 500 watts into 8 ohms. I played a tonehammer through an nv115. I switched from a cn212 and the results were staggering. It went from very loud and punchy to a huge drop in volume and almost no low end. That cab need some power to open up.

    I bet the TTE 800 would push it much better.

    I have an NV115 and a Markbass SA450 (basically an LM2 with a few extra bells and whistles). While I love the NV115 I definitely do not like the combination with the Markbass, it lacks the punch and character which is normally such a strength of the Berg. While both are great products individually, I would describe the combination as bland.

    Interesting replies. I thought it would have been an excellent combination.
    Anyway, thanks for the heads up.
