It's time for me to purchase a new bass cabinet, and I'm turning to the greater community for assistance. I know there's heaps of threads on here discussing the pros and cons of the various speaker setups however they generally end up with comments like "well it depends what OP is looking for in his sound, go out and try as much as you can" etc... which I fully appreciate. My issue is that I'm in a remote area and I can't just go to the nearest music shop and try out the various combinations I'm looking for. I play ska music and try to write quite fun poppy moving bass lines. I got muscled a while back from guitar to the bass and have self-taught myself everything I know, which I admit isn't a hell of a lot. I play with a pick (apologies to the purists) and the head I use is 300w all tube, ridiculously loud, I like to go for a punchy and warm sound and that's probably the best I can describe it, haha. After doing my research, reading reviews, youtubing, so on and so forth I'm kind of tossing up between a 2x15 (Trace Elliot 1528, I think it's called) and a 6x10 (Likely a Fender Bassman Neo). Although Trace Elliot do a 2x10 + 1x15 which sounds intriguing to me, they seem hard to track down however. The previous amps are within my price range and statistically fit the bill of what I need. I don't want anything too big, mainly due to the type of gigs my band plays (house parties through to medium size pub/clubs) and the limited space in my ute (pickup truck), or too heavy because I get zero assistance from the rest of the band, and I gig a LOT. As I said, my experience is admittedly limited and as such I'm not aware of the nuances of the various speaker setups, i.e the pitfalls of a 2x15 in an open venue without PA support etc. Just hoping for a quick crash course in dos and do nots and maybe some recommendations from the wealth of knowledge here. Cheers in advance!
