Intro: Im just a 15 year old guy, who really likes spending time looking at amps and cabs and playing bass. I play in a hardcore band, for those who dont know what hardcore is, check out bands like Minor Threat, Carry on, Bane, Give up the ghost, stuff like that. It is by no means filled with any 5 string ibanez drop A slap lines so commonly and disgustingly found in "mtv nu~metal" bands like korn and slipknots. What I have: In 2 weeks i am ordering a Fender Geddy Lee jazz bass. And as if of now i use my Avatar 2x10 cab and a crappy 135@8ohm/200@4ohm pv session head. When i play with my band, i pair the cab with my friends genze benz 1x15 cab. When i push my dinky little amp to top volumes, i get a crappy tone and alot of distortion. The kind of distortion you get when your speakers are being driven way too much. I dont understand this at all. I use alot of midrange tones, and hardly and low or treble. I've been reading about how you guys have these insanly powerfull amps but you just use a 1x15 or a couple 1x12's and i am blown away that you dont need more speakers. I am also planning on buying a hartke 3500 head, its cheap, powerfull, has great eq What Im deciding on: buying a avatar 4x10, and selling the 2x10 to buy a 1x15 OR buying a avatar 2x12 to pair with the 2x10 Everything would be simpler with the 2x12 2x10 set up, but im scared it wouldn't handle enough power. I'd also be a little upset that it isn't this insane death rig,that i'd be super proud of.BUt if i went with a 4x10 1x15, i'd never have to worry about volume, and i'd have a death rig, but it'd be hard to take to places.
