    The Thunton Quad Bass with the Subbass Destroyer cab can deliver anything you wish in the lower frequencies. Use monster cables and the Thunton will make as SVT sound like old fish in June on a hot day in July or a cold meat sandwich on a hardtop in Arizona in January with pimento loaf and Miracle whip on it served up on sesame bun.

    I'm pretty sure the BassMan 25 is 25W & the BassMan 60 is 60Watts. I'd go for the BassAmn 60 over the other 3 choices. The Hartke is bla. I have a Hartke B30 that I get cheap & it blows chunks. I hate it. The SWR LA series seems really cheaply made & it's not very versatile.

    So what's it sound like with, say.. Dimarzio cables? Does it just go all to hell then?
