best 1 x 15' combo around

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Russy, Apr 29, 2002.


  1. I am looking for a good quality combo with a 15' speaker with tweeter.
    Must be at least 150 watts - 300 watts with balanced DI, be able to carry alone, extension speaker jack, compressor/limiter with level knob, variable midrange and a headphone jack. A tube preamp would be nice, but not a must.Price range R8000 - R15000 ($800 -$1500).
     
  2. If you can live without the tweeter, get an SWR Workingman's 15.

    My favorite is the Ampeg B2. It has 200 watts as a stand-alone, and 350 with an extension cabinet. It has an extsnive EQ, but it lacks the headphone jack. A powerful beast with that deep Ampeg tone.
