    Title says it all. The rule is dead simple. Let's see usable rigs with beastly heads that outweigh their connected cab.

    First entry:
    70-some-odd lb. V4B on a 45lb. Deltalite-loaded Portabass 212
    ImageUploadedByTalkBass1363482326.844713.

    Second:
    Same head on a sub-30lb. 15PR400-loaded 115
    ImageUploadedByTalkBass1363482495.341999.
     
  2. The amp out weighs both cabs combined.

    Peavey Classic 400 - 100 pounds

    fEARful 12/6/1's - 45 pounds each.

    I used Barefaced cabs and vintage valve heads, so mine do.

    Head outweighs the top cab, and is about the same weight as the bottom cab. :D

    VBA 400: ~85 lbs
    Top cab (loaded with Eminence Basslites): ~50 lbs

    DSC03192.

    Cheers!

    Nice. SVT monkey-piled my mini SVT's. That'll show it.
