  7. Cost no object, what's an extra amp you don't really need either? Have you seen the size of the AER combos? Worth a look if you are seriously after a practice rig. I too have a surplus of cabs and amps and that would be my 'cost no object just because I can' choice.

    The cabs you listed are gigging cabs. It's a question of maximum utility for an extravagance. Obviously whatever is chosen is just to sit in the music room. It might as well be small. Oh, it has an amp too. You can take it outside and practice under a tree when it's a battery powered combo.

    Perhaps you meant a rehearsal cab?
  8. I would stick to what I have now: a B15N. It's simply a pleasure to play through and it looks so pretty just sitting there ready for me to plug in and switch on! :)

    Cost wasn't an issue, so I bought 2 used Barefaced One10's. Fantastic tone even at home volume levels.

    Not expensive, but Tech 21 Deuce Deluxe is great at home. It can be a bass cab, guitar cab, multimedia speaker. Pretty versatile.

    I went with a Genzler 350 12Vt combo that sounds good at low volume and can crank up.

    I use a Mesa Subway 115. Nothing I have heard sounds better, and it's large enough to put the stuff I frequently use on top of ('puter, interface, coupla pedals).......plenty loud. If cost was a null factor, I would order the same cab with a furniture quality finish from Mesa Custom Shop.

    I'm very pleased using my old TE 118+410 stacks in the rehearsal space, and I run my AH400SMX amps through them. No plans to change anytime soon.

    BUT... if I didn't have these and I had a whole mess of bread burning a hole in my pocket, I'd go after a pair of Berg HDN212's (or NXT's) and a B|Amp.
