Hartke 1415 vs. kickback 15

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by bassist31588, Feb 3, 2003.


  1. yeah, the 1415 is almost 100 less and with 20 extra watts with basically the same type of amp, just i doesn't kick back... which is louder? I like the tone of the kickback but havent tried the 1415, wouldn't imagine much less from it though. the 1415 has the 1400 basss head in it while the kickback has the 1200 which doesn't sell seperately (the 1400 does)

    I have an amp that kicks back, and its ok. I use it kicked back when im playing in a band practicing type setting, or while standing up. You can hear yourself a little better that way.

    I had the 1415 94-01 and sold it to a mate. If I remember correctly the 1415 has the Xl speaker whilst the kickback has the TP (btw I have a TP cab) speaker.

    I think that the 1415 is 'better' whatever that means. BTW try the 2x10 versh as well.
     
  4. I'll check out the 2x10 version if I can find one. I think it's more expensive, if it's more expensive than the kickback 15, I'd might as well just throw in an extra 100 (which I can barely do:D ) and be twice as happy/loaded with a head/cab setup. Like the 2000 head with an avatar or Madison cab
