    Hey guys!

    The wording of the name of this thread is awful so i apologize to begin with,

    I want A forceful sounding amp with power, i would prefer a solid state, (as i am very clumsy =S :hyper: also smaller etc)

    I am looking for a whole new rig, i'm looking for amp series and company names (Cab and head or what ever)

    Just getting names, which is why i'm not asking for a rough wattage,

    This is for the P-bass style split coil for my Attitude,

    If anyone can recommend a loud, powerful sounding grunty but most of all smooth sounding amp for the woofer, that would be good too!

    Many Regards

    (My wording is abysmal, truly awful, so if you guys have no idea what i'm talking about i'm sorry :bawl: when i think how write it better, i shall)

    Yes, that description screams Mesa Engineering. A Titan V12 atop a Powerhouse 1200.

    I found something along those lines (I think) in the Genz Shuttle 6.0.

    The fast-responding class D power section seems to give a good "force" to the notes. You can definitely feel it.

    I'm a cheap bastid, so I run it into an Avatar 410 neo.

    It all does what I want though.
