As some of you know, I was looking at getting a Markbass LMII to breathe some new life into my rig. After some looking around, I have found some other amps that are even more powerful, and cost the same or less. Plus, I play in a indie/screamo band. Crystal clear tone is not too important. One thing I have been thinking of doing is a makeover of my rig. The 300 watts of my Ashdown and the 2 15"s of my Sunn aren't keeping up very well with a really loud drummer and a loud guitar player. I've already damaged my speakers a little bit, so I know I can't push them anymore (and it's not like my Ashdown could, either). So, as of right now, I'm looking at Carvin heads and Avatar cabinets. More specifically, the Carvin BX1200 and Avatar B212 Neo cabs. I really like the Carvin because of the massive EQ capacity it has. The 5-band, 3 sweep tone controls is great in itself, but then when you add the foot-switchable 9 band graphic EQ, there's got to be tons of usable tones in this thing. The 225W at 8 ohms, 400W at 4 ohms, and 600W at 2 ohms isn't too shabby, either . Now, on to the Avatars. From everything i've heard, 12"s would be perfect for me. They're punchy like 10s, but can have the bottom of 15s, which is what I use now. I've also heard many good reviews about these specific cabinets. I know they aren't the greatest cabinets in the world, but at $300 and 500W, it's a great deal for some pretty dang good cabinets. Everyone seems to get along with the Eminence drivers, too. Plus, they are much more portable than my Sunn, and would maybe even make a good combo (does a 2x12" + 2x15" stack sound like doom to anyone? ) So, I would imagine that getting this setup, a Carvin BX1200 with 2 Avatar B212 cabinets would be pretty killer. A potential 1000W of handling with an amp that can deliver. Sorry for the long post, but I like to explain my reasoning behind a potential purchase. Any thoughts?
