I am now officially overwhelmed by all the amp choices. I have researched non stop on talkbass and know pretty much every ampa nd cab specs, etc. I will be going away to college after next year (Currently Community college). So I am gonna say portability is a concern. My styles include: Jazz, Jam Band stuff, classic rock, funk, and dub/reggae. I am not sure what to get that is loud enough. At one point i had a hartke 3000 hooked up to 2 aggie 112's. It was not loud enoughi felt. Maybe because the cabs were underpowered? Maybe because the mids were a little lacking (tried to dial in some mids)? I am looking to buy used and dont like 15's. My price point is about 400-500 bucks for the first cab, considering id more than likely be going with multiple cabs.
