    I'm not sure whether to put this into Basses or Amps, since this is really concerning all of my gear.

    Here's what I've got

    2001-ish MIM Fender Jazz Deluxe V upgraded w/Ultrajazzes, Badass bridge, Aguilar OBP-3, shielding, star grounding.

    dbx 166 compressor
    BBE BMax
    QSC RMX 1450
    Acme B4

    I play roots reggae in the vein of Bob Marley and Burning Spear.

    What would be the next logical step in upgrading my gear? I'm leaning towards another B4 or maybe a higher end cabinet like a Schroeder or Bergantino. But a new bass, perhaps a Sadowsky or Warwick Streamer would be nice.

    I suspect I'm going to be asked what I think is the weakest link in my gear, and I'm really not sure. It could very well be that I'd like more stage volume, and another B4 would certainly give that to me. If I did that, should I get another QSC to power it?

  2. if you like the sound from it, keep it. Maybe GAS for some pedals or somthing.

    Find yourself a nice P5 or P/J 5 -- something that just sounds absolutely HUGE.

    Sounds like a great rig to me...

    If you want more volume grab another B4, sell the RMX 1450 and put it towards another power amp that puts out more power.
