  1. well....after i finish paying for my new quaddie ;) im gonna upgrade my head, or the other choice is to buy a 2x10 combo.

    what i was thinking of doing is either selling my head and buying a Hartke HA3500 or HA5500 and keeping the 4x10 + 1x15 setup....OORRRR, selling my head and 15" and getting a nemesis 210 combo and having a 6x10 setup....im kinda undecided, i love the sound of both amps but what the advice i want is which one would be more thesable, logical whatever to do, cos the nemesis 210 and hartke 3500 are the same price over here...the hartke 5500 is a little more expensive but only by about $200-300

    the nemesis is 250w @4ohm
    3500 350w@4ohm
    5500 500w@4ohm

    both my current cabs are 8ohm each

    I would tend to favour the head / cabinet approach rather than a combo+ extention cabinet because having the components separate allows for easier upgrading at a later date.

    Personally I would look at some of the Aussie made gear over Hartke, but thats a personal choice. If I were you, I would be asking myself the important questions:

    1. What does Kubicki recommend?
    2. What does Stu Hamm use?

    I'm sure that will settle it for you ;)
     
  3. Can you give me the head? ty
     
  4. aha ha ha :eyebrow: ....

    trust me if i had the money id be out buying a hartke HA5500 and 4.5xl :D ..ive already tested it with the kubicki and it sounded awesome....

    but i was thinking the nemesis so ive only got ta carry the combo (cos they're light as anything) then i can just take the cab with the combo to larger gigs....but the hartke heads are small, n lighter than this old peavey beast :D

    i've checked out some nemisis gear before helping out some old students of mine, and i found it to be pretty decent stuff, especially considering the reasonable price.

    for what it's worth :)
