Cab to go with BAM?

    I love the tone my BAM gets, and lately I've been using my 1x15BXBW, that was part of my preBam stack with it. I'm starting to think that I don't like the sound of the BXBW. It just sounds kinda Blah compared to the BAM. The BAM sounds great by itself, but I'd still like another Cab to go with it, I'm not loud enough otherwise. I'd by another BAM to go with it, but that would be to expensive.
    Help!

    My suggestion would be a peavey 4x10. The black widows are supposed to be IT. However, I think a better cab to go with the bam would be a SWR triad. That would give you the low end of the 1x15 along with some additional punch from your 2 10's and the triad's 1x10

    have fun.

    I've been thinking of adding an extension cab to my Peavey Combo115... Probably a Peavey 2x10 for more punch and high end, and then I'm gonna replace the speaker in the Combo with a Black Widow replacement for better low end and less farting out of the crappy speaker that's already in there. Hmm... how much would a Peavey 2x10 cost new? used?

    I would personally recommend a Peavey 4x10, they have great frequency range and are relatively inexpensive, and if you love the tone of your amp's 2x10, just think if it had four more of those things! I'd go for the 4x10 for my own purposes, but the Combo115 takes up half the back seat/trunk space, and the other half is taken up by my bass, so a 2x10 won't take up that much more space, whereas a 4x10 wouldn't even leave room for my bass.

    Hmm.. Does anyone know of a Peavey dealer that has a website? None of the big dealers carry em (Musicians Friend as well as a couple others I can't remember) and I can't find prices on em anywhere.
     
  6. For the BAM, I would recommend another 4x10, just because that is the sound that I like, but you might want another 15 for some more low end. Try a higher priced one, like the SWR or Eden.

    How old is your Combo 115? The one that I have has the BW speaker, and doesnt sound the best. One time I did take it in to the store and connected the 2x10, and I thought that that sounded great. Plenty of volume and a good rounded tone.

    Just try before you buy!

    Edit: Peavey doesnt allow selling through mail order, so the only place you will really be able to see them is at the peavy website. www.peavey.com

    Actually it is just the 15 Cab, not the combo 115. If it sounded like the combo 300, that would be great, but for some reason, I've never gotten it to sound like that. The reason I originally got it was b/c I liked the Combo 300, and I thought that it would sound good with my stack, for some reason it sounds really thin compared to the combo. I did have the speaker replaced twice. Maybe they put in the wrong kind?

    Does the Bam even have the same speakers as the peavey 4x10, I used to have a 4x10TXF, and I personally think the BAM sounds a whole lot better. I am almost positive it has better frequency response. Maybe its just my imagination.

    O well I guess I'll just keep the 15 for now, since I am broke. Actually I've been testing it somemore, and I decided I like the 15, its just to loud compared to the bam, I think eventually I might just add another 2x10, or 2x12 to what I have, and that would help keep the 15 under control.
