  1. Because the audience can now see you better, since they have the sun behind them.

  2. Why?

    And do you mean generally, or do you mean specifically when emulating that Bassman tube amp?

    NOTES FROM THE FIELD:

    The old-skool Rumble 100 does just fine with a 1958 Gibson Skylark lap steel. I had that sucker up against about a fifty-piece orchestra, full horns and woodwinds, full percussion lineup, in a 600-seat space. Amp volume only had to go to about 45%; Skylark volume on 7 or 8.

    Sounded great to the audience.

    Tone; Responsiveness, and Headroom. Pushing the amp hard and using all it has to offer is always best.

    Yes, that has crossed my mind, the 1-15 cabs are rated 300w and then the 2-10 700w, so I wonder what will be the chances of wearing out a 300w spkr, that is one reason the 2-10 cab looks favorable.

    1 cab will be at the rehearsal room, upstairs, all I have to haul there will be the R500 and my bass.
    The other one is for my main band in which I play guitar, and our bassist will rehearse with that cab and head,
    yes, convenient for him o_O (it has been for a few years)

    But, when I gig with the band I play bass in, both cabs will be "RUMBLIN'" you can bet on it :smug::D

    Hey all, it's me again! (anyone miss me... no?.... :whistle:) anyway, I want to get a rumble 500 head and wondering any 2x10 rumble cabs out there, (cos the 500 combo is a 2x10 but i already have a r100 combo, i want a head and cab now) or a cab that's 500 watt roughly that I can use with a rumble 500 head?
    how much does it weigh?
    Thanks. Really apreciate the support guys.

    of all the clubs im a part of (which is not a lot, actually...) the rumble club is the most supportive, interesting, and coolest club out there!

    :roflmao: Keep Rockin' You Rumblers!! :roflmao: :bassist:

    EDIT: Also what is the difference between program wattage and continuous wattage on the cabs?

    I'm running the 500 head with 2 of the 210 cabs now. I can't say enough good stuff about it. I ran just 1 cab since 2016 and had no issues, just wanted to try it with 2 cabs.

    (Well I did have a speaker go in the old cab, but that is being fixed as we speak)

    See the Fender Rumble V3 Summary Info on the Fender Rumble Club Wiki page for sizes, weights, costs, etc.

    Notice that the separate head and cabinet weighs more and costs more than the combo. And both only gives you 350 watts thru the 8 ohm 210. They both need another 8 ohm cab to get to 500 watts.

    ok so ur saying the 500 head needs 2 cabs to actually reach 500 watts, and that it's actually 350 watts?

    with what cabinet are you referring to?

    are u saying i should get a 500 combo? is it 500 watt straight up with no additional cabs?

    The 500 head puts out "only" 350 watts at 8 ohms (one Rumble cab), or 500 watts at 4 ohms (two Rumble cabs). You could get a single 4 ohm cab somewhere else.

    All the Rumble cabs are 8 ohms. Other brands and configurations may be almost anything.

    IF you wish to save money and/or weight the combo costs less and weighs less and gives the same result as the head and cab. Both are only 350 watts "straight up" with no additional cabs. Both need one additional 8 ohm cab to get the full 500 watts.
