How does this head/cab combination sound?

  1. Hey everyone,
    Ok, here's the deal. I have a Sunn 2x15 on the way and I'm trying to find a head and another cab to go with it. I have a chance to get a Sonic 4x10 and a Peavey Alphabass for pretty cheap, but I'm not sure if the power/impedency will allow it (yeah, sorry to bring it up again).
    Here are the specs:

    Alphabass - 160W @ 4 or 2 Ohms (one output for each)

    Sunn 2x15 - 300W @ 8 Ohms

    Sonic 4x10 - 400W @ 8 Ohms

    I've read through the FAQ and a few other posts, but I'm still not sure if this will work out. If it won't (or ends up being to quiet), I might use the Alphabass as a pre and run it through a poweramp. Is that a reasonable option?
    Also, if anyone has any experience with the above mentioned equipment, I'd like to hear about it.

  2. Anyone?
  3. bump.
  4. You'd have to have a cab plugged into the alphabass even if you wanted to just use the preamp. Or a dummy load.
    But it does have a preamp out.

    It is a decently loud amp, though, through the right cabs.
