  2. I hereby find this amp set-up GUILTY of kicking ass! Furthermore, by the power invested in me by the Bass, I sentence it to groove for the rest of it's natural born life. :smug:

    Good Stuff!

    I think that Dave Siff (TB'er) had a cabinet set up like that.

    Love Ag cabs!

    Need a 410 some day soon.

    wow, really? Small world.

    yea i bought both cabinest off him. and he was a good guy about it. they sound huge. they are just big big cabs with tons of bass. i use an ashdown abm 900 for an amp. the only problem i have with teh whole rig is not enough high end for tapping. but i think its more the amp than the cabs. but those cabs are awsome.

    righteous. So you are putting 575 watts into each cab? Thats about what I would be putting as well (600)

    no both cabs are 8 ohms, so i run them bridged into one channel. id like to buy another stack so i coulduse both channels.

    I think that's a great setup, especially because you added the 210. The BBE Bmax preamps have SO MUCH BOOTY that you're gonna need that to really add some presence.
