    QSC 1850HD power amp (that HAS to be enough power: 600W into 4 ohms w/o bridging-double what i have now, 800rb, and i just need a litle more )
    Ampeg svt810e cab

    Hers a question: can you use the Sansamp RBI as your sole preamp or do you need something lkie the svtpro?
    I know most of you will say the RBI doesnt provide enough tone shaping and eq, but all i need is a driving, souped up hardcore bass sound . I already have the sansamp DI and i love the tone from that ( 100% blend).
    Anyways the RBi is wicked nice an a lot more affordable.....

    Whats you think?
     
  2. yeah you can use the rbi as the sole preamp..it has enough eq in my opinion. If you need more eq just get a parametric one and that should be enough.

    Parametric EQ is one that has two knobs for each section: one similar to normal EQ that controls how much you boost or cut a part of signal, but also another which controls where the boost/cut point is, eg. you can move the most affected point between, for example, 40-70Hz for lows.

    If there's something parametric about the EQ, it's usually the mids.
     
  7. Actually that's a semi-perametric EQ. A fully perametric also has what's called a 'Q' control. This allows you to widen or narrow the range of frequencies that are being effected. If you're using it to clean up noise or feedback, you usually go for a narrow bandwidth. If you're doing tone shaping, you will want a wider bandwith with a smoother rolloff above and below the center frequency 'sweep' control.
