    My existing bass is an old Carlsbro BG90 with 15" speaker and 90 watts output. It is pretty old and beaten up and I've had a few issues with loose wiring, but easily rectified with a trip to guitaraid in Fulham.

    I was told Ashdown were pretty good for the money and I thought 90 watts vs 180 watts was a no brainer (even though the Carlsbro is bigger and has a 15" speaker)

    I've got a Fender Aerodyne Jazz and have just tried it through the two amps one after the other and actually think the Carlsbro has more punch and more in reserve.

    Any thoughts from members?

    Bigger boxes = bigger bass. Bigger boxes + bigger power = BIGGER bass.
