    Hello, (please bear with me)
    I currently play a passive jazz into a fender bassman 400 into a bag end 15 cab; the bass had passive fralins and I changed them to a set of passive Bartolinis. I love the sound of the bass, but I am now having a bit of trouble hearing it as well. The bass seems a little quieter now (but I am digging the "bark" of the barts). I have been reading and trying to understand re: watts, ohms, and volume, and I'm still a bit confused. I am thinking of buying an Acoustic Image focus head( 600 watts @ 4 ohms). If I have two 8 ohm cabs (15s)
    will that give me all of the available wattage? Will there be a big difference in volume going from the Fender bassman Bag end 15, to the focus head with two cabs? Does anyone know if there are two outputs on the focus head?
    Thank you for any help....
