    Which of these would be better do you think? This are unfortunately now my only two options for a gigging rig. The Laney is a R4H 300 watt rms (what does the rms mean...) head with a 4x10 and a 1x15, both with celestions, and the hartke is the 500 watt version of the 350 watt head plus two hartke vx cabs. Laney is about $300au dearer, worth paying?

    RMS = Root Mean Square. Fancy means of calculating the average power output. My inner math nerd is kicking in.

    RMS=(avergage power output * average power output)^0.5

    If it's top of the line Hartke cabs..........go for the Hartke setup. I have the head and it's wonderful!
