    I have been looking to round up my sound so i bought a 150w Peavy TNT combo 15" for cheap that is in great shape. I had been looking to get a 15" bottom to run my GK210 combo from and push 300watts and round out the bottom.My guiarist said he had the Peavy and he would hook it up using my GK line out and i could stack and eq the GK and the peavy....he hooked it up with a patch cord at practice and :eek: the best bass sound i have ever had and i can now Eq both cabs each...better than a stand alone bottom using one Eq...do any of you guys do this? I dont understand why more dont since you can EQ each...is there any pros or cons to this set up? I'm lovin the sound!
     
  2. Could it be because buying TWO combos is more expensive than buying a combo and cab or, for that matter, a head and two cabs? ;)

    I got a good deal on the GK210 and bought it new...well my wife did ....gift. I wanted a portible amp with decent watts 300 so i got the GK good company and warranty. I was then going to get a cab since the combo will push an extention cab...but the Peavy was $125.00 and like new for an older amp...so hooked together they sound great as i said. A 15" cab was 200.00 and up so i saved and have a seperate eq on the peavy so i guess its a better way to go than a stand alone cab powered by one head and one eq....right?
     
  4. I played a TNT combo on loan from a friend, and found it to be a fairly powerful and quite reliable unit. I wish I had it back.

    It is perfect for a stage monitor in a venue with full PA support, or small bars. It is insufficient for outdoors.

    Tone isn't the strong point of this unit, as it has no bottom. Taking the TNT and my bass to the truck in one trip has a lot of value.
     
  5. If you/your wife got a sweet deal, I can see no particular argument other than weight/portability issues. :)

    I was really making the point that the reason it isn't done more often is possibly that, GENERALLY, it would be a much more expensive way to go.

    I see your point.....i guess only if the right deal $$ comes along.... I think the bottom from the TNT 150 is way huge ...but thats me.
