Back again for some more advice: I play Tune Bass Maniac 4-string basses, fretted and fretless in the 6-piece band Holiday We just had a CD release party with about 200 people. We're playing at San Diego's Del Mar Fair in front of thousands on Saturday... our gigs are getting bigger and I'm thinking about expanding my amplification system. Right now I've got an EBS Taurus 240W 210 combo. It's heavy as hell for a combo (~70lbs), but it's only one box, and I love the tone. I'd rather not sell it, 'cause EBS stuff is kind of undervalued here in the US. It's a very midrangey box, very punchy but not too much low bass. It's EQ is *very* good, though, and I can get just about anything out of it if I boost the bass a bit. BUT... it started to fart out on the low notes at our CD release party. I don't hear much talk about people using subwoofers. The EBS has an active crossover (variable frequency) and a sub line out, so I could use an active subwoofer with it. 1. Anyone do this? 2. Can one buy an active subwoofer for bass? 3. Or, do you just use a separate amp and bass cab (I'm thinking 15")? At this point, it seems like I should go with separates for greater flexibility... Sorry this is so long. I look forward to your responses!
