First I will give some background, apologies in advance for the length (skip straight to the bold sentence if you prefer). Recently I posted a thread about using an EAW sub and PA speaker driven by a Crest CA6 as my rig, and after playing around with it, I finally found the correct settings to get it to sound as I like it. Although the sub has a built in crossover, with a through connection for the mids and highs, the hi´s couldn´t keep up with the lows, so I have to run it through a DSP acting as a crossover (just because I have a couple of DSP´s lying around) and use both channels of the amp, with the crossover point at 85Hz. My idea for this setup was to allow me to keep one of these in the living room, and another one at rehearsal, giving me the same set up at both places, without lugging gear around. I also have a GK MB112 in my music room for quick noodling and practicing. Unfortunately this did not work out, as the reaction of my other half to a 15" sub, a PA cab, and a small rack in the living room was not good! So I moved this into the music room, with the intention of moving it to the living room just when I want to practice. That idea sucks! The set up is a huge pain to move, and also takes up a huge ammount of space in my small music room. I tried using it in the music room, thinking I could just loose the GK, but even at volume 1 it shakes everything in the room! Adding to this, I just started rehearsing with another band, well 1 drummer and 1 guitarist, and the rehearsal space is on a porch, so basically open air. The poor MB112 could not keep up. Even on full, with the combo on a chair, I could hear it but the drummer and guitarist couldn't. So... after all this (unneeded?) info, here is what I am looking for: Lightweight: I would like to find a set up that would allow me to move it around without to much hassle. It doesn't need to be a micro rig, but definately not the weight I am dealing with now! Size: Again, it doesn't need to be micro, but I would like to be able to fit this in my music room. I think something like a 212 would be the max. Transparency: The reason I have been using the PA setup is because I also use ableton live, launching drum tracks, loops, and playing other instruments on the keyboard etc. My bass always runs through a B3, which I use to simulate amps and cabs (plus effects). I have my music room set up for this already, but when I leave the room to rehearse in other places, I need to be able to reproduce these accurately. (I also play 5 strings and 4 strings, the 5er is mainly for Hip Hop, Reggae and Dance, so I do use the low B). Loudness: I will need this to be able to keep up with a heavy handed drummer, and a pretty loud guitarist, but I do not need to be able to fill an auditorium with this,as we have our own PA system if any of the venues don't provide it. It would also replace my GK in my music room, so I don't want something that I need to drive hard for it to sound good! Price: I think that if I sell some stuff, I could probably raise about 1000 € for the cab (so basically around $1000 in the US due to the price differences). Amp: I have a CA6 and a QSC CX302 at the moment, which I am happy with, except for the weight, so if I got rid of these, it would be to go for something lighter, but obviously capable of doing the above. Options: I am looking at the Barefaced and Fearful cabinets. Unfortunately, the Fearful are only available from a UK builder, who offers them in 15mm birch at the moment, and does not offer the drivers, crossovers, etc. I don't think I could (or want to) find the time to build this. Barefaced is an option (that I should probably research on Basschat, but I like being bashed by TBers ) but I am unsure if the Big Baby 2 would be enough, and the Big Twin 2 is out of the price range. So.. am I asking for the impossible? Are there any other options that would fit my needs? Should I just keep going the PA route? HEEEEELP? (please) note: Used is not really an option where I live.
