    Hey all, i recently picked up a new aguilar gs412 cab and now Im looking to upgrade my head. I have been trying various tube heads and really love the fender bassman 300 (formerly the sunn 300t) In my opinion, it killed the svt classic.(Super loud and powerful) I liked the tone more that the mesa 400+ as well. However, the weight might be a real issue cause I am gigging quite often. I tried a Mesa M-Pulse 600 and liked that a lot too, not quite as warm but only 2 spaces and its very versatile. SO my question, the cab is 1200w @ 4ohms, the m-pulse is rated at 600. Will that drive this cab sufficienty or do I need to explore hybrids around 1200w if I decide not to go tube.
    Thanks

    IMO, the M-Pulse 600 would drive that very efficiently. I currently love my M-Pulse 600.
