    So, I am officially pushing 800w @ 4 ohms into an Avatar Neo 410 via a Kustom Groove Bass 1200HD.

    nice! my problem with those high volumes at home isn't my neighbors, but the way that it makes the windows rattle, and the pictures fall off the wall ! it certainly is funny though to see the dog scamper off... i don't think that he likes the low frequencies

  3. hahahaha, i could very easily annoy the hell out of my neighbours too, im thinking about getting back to hooking my bass amp up as the sub for my CD player

    I just had a look at your pics section - how is the Firebass connected in the pic? Is it bi-amped?

    I explained it all in that post, the firebass is putting out its full range signal to the two 4 ohm peavey cabs, but the high out is going to a peavey classic 30 guitar cab etc etc, full setup is in that post :)

    If you heard me play, you'd stop reading what I write.
    When i first plugged in my my epi 310 and stewart amp, my neighbor (a good friend) called 30 seconds later. He said,
    "I don't know what that is, but I'll give you $100 to take it right back wherever you got it."

  8. haha .. sounds like your neighbour's got a sense of humour.

    It all depends upon how your house is arranged.

    I've got a full-bown home theater with a 1200 watt sub and seven 100W channels. I've pushed it up to insane levels, and walked outside to see how loud it is. The room is extremely well insulated, and surrounded by a concrete foundation on three sides -- it's really not very loud outside. Inside, though, it's another story -- the rest of the house vibrates like it's the apocalypse. When we still lived in an apartment, the sub could shake the whole building.

    However, my new Bergatino IP 310 (1000 watts), is located upstairs, and I know I had to be heard by the whole neighborhood yesterday when I cranked it up. :D :bassist:

    I'm thinking of getting that same amp so I can have 800W total for my two 8ohmers.

    I think this rig was made specifically for my G&L.
  15. What kinda G&L do you use with it?

    On the "getting-your-neighbours-annoyed"-apartmet, I'm the king. I've hade the coming over with just the Kustom in my sig (it's 16 W, but preforms as good as the Hartke). But when I got the Hartke I don't need to crank up the vol. so much as I had with the Kustom to get a nice sound, so the visitrate has dropped :crying: :D

    I got all you guys beat, I pissed off my neighbors by jamming, quietly I might add, on my Peavey 15 watt practice amp at 4:45 in the afternoon. Top THAT for anal retentive.

    I have for sale in the for sale forum ;)

    I could piss off my drummer pretty quick with my groovebass and avatar 212. I can only imagine how much quicker I'll be able to do it with my new SVT.
  18. In my old neighborhood lived an ooollllllddd lady whose husband had died about 40 years earlier when they were about 70. Anyway, it had been yyyyeeeaaarrrsssss since anyone had actually seen her. Once, her detached garage had burned down after her car caught fire at 4am and four fire engines with sirens blarin' did not wake her; she slept thru the whole thing.

    Well would you believve that several years later right after I got my first SVT and was crankin' that she made her presence known (purple hair, a knit sleeping cap, an overcoat, in the summer!) and preceded to tell me, "When are you gonna stop that awful racket? I was trying to read my Reader's Digest and I was feeling the vibrations coming up thru the bed."

    I didn't know who the hell she was. I'd never seen her before. It was awhile before I figured it out after talking to other neighbors who were stunned that she came out.

    Anyone ever jam with your band outside? LOL its great.... my band played outside at our drummer's house and I guess his neighbors didn't like our music or something as the cops showed up like an hour into our practice session. They said that they had several neighbors call in about loud music and some were pretty far away from his house, it was funny.
  20. Aha, YOU were that loud youngster who used to live next door.
