ok, here's a bass rig idea i came up with, with a few options in it to hear other people's feedback. this rig is for a punk hardcore band; something in between rancid and minor threat: bass --> sansamp bass driver preamp or a sansamp RBI --> carvin 600watt PA system power amp (really, and 400-1000 watts of clean power is ok; i'm looking for reliability and price here, mostly)--> avatar speakers 4x10 + tweeter (1200w handling), loaded with eminence speakers and made of birch plywood, not particle board, so it's lighter and stronger the two guitarists in said band (i wanna brag about setup), one (me), uses a sovtek mig 50 through a 4x12 cab loaded (so loud tube head), and the other runs a ss 100w tube head into a 2x15 cab voiced for guitar, not bass. i think this setup would be good for a few reasons: 1. other than the bass, i'm pretty sure if you got the preamp and maybe the power amp used, you'd be spending less than $1000 on this rig. 2. seems like it would be versatile with the sansamp and the line-capability for larger venues, means you could also send it out for additional power. but power and speaker output are important for us, because as of right now it's not that economical for us to buy a large PA, and renting them is a b*tch now, and we do some DIY gigs. so basically, we're running just vocals out of a 2x12 PA. any suggestions about how to change around this setup to maximize its effectiveness or other ideas i could use, or just feedback in general? thanks for reading!
