    Here's a bit of a challenge:

    What's the best combo, under 50lbs, to handle a low B?

    (And, if you know more about physics than a neophyte like me, why exactly?)

    If you mean "combo" like combo amp, then I think that the Epifani UL112c is the best that I have heard in that weight range. Under 50 pounds and has no problems with a low B. All I can tell you about physics is "low, light and loud... pick any two" but with the developments in lighter drivers you can get pretty close to having all three. It depends on how loud is loud for you.

    Technically not a combo, but a Flite 155 and an Acoustic Image Focus 1 in your gig bag will easily do all 3. Reload it with a kappa pro and you have a 36lb cab that will heave that B string. Now actually getting a Flite, that's a whole 'nother question.
