I'm playing with a guitarist who has the widest dynamic range I've ever encountered: Everything from whisper-quiet mandolin, thru banjo, amplified acoustic guitar, right up to the loudest electric rock and blues. I'd like to squeeze a bit more out of my fEARful 15/6 than my micro amp can deliver. The cab can take almost 800 watts into 8 ohms. I tried bridging my Eden WT800 (usually racked for a different project). That's enough power. But when we stop between tunes, or he switches gears to much softer music, the fan in the Eden sounds like a 747 taking off! No biggie; I usually use the Eden for a wedding band, where I don't push it hard enough to trigger the fan. I've been looking at the Carvin BX1500 (loud, versatile, cheap) as a possible alternative for the guitarist's band. But now I've just noticed some posts in TalkBass complaining about the BX1500's fan noise! Anybody have comments about the fan noise of either of these amps?? Thanks in advance.
