    Saving $$ and mulling amp upgrades for the coming year, and wonder about the external speaker handling capability of the Markbass Jeff Berlin combo.

    Specifically:

    * If keeping the internal speaker connected and adding an extension cab, what is the ideal cab ohm rating for the additional cab, and the resulting affect of the amp's power output when using an ideally rated cab.

    * Is anybody running such a setup, and what are your experiences?

    Thanks.

    Your only option would be an 8 ohm cab, as the internal speaker is also 8 ohm; this would give you a 4 ohm load, which is the lowest you can go with a Markbass head. This would give you 500 watts, opposed to the 300 the Berlin puts out "stock".

    I just got my Berlin Cab this week, so I haven't had a chance to try it with an extension cab but I imagine it works great. I have a LMKII that I run with various 4 ohm cabinets and it sounds great. Good tone and plenty of volume.
     
  3. +1 to running another 8 Ohm cab. I have the 12'' Markbass combo and I run an extension 2x10 8 Ohm cab. Works wonders :D
     
  4. I can just hear that cab... It automatically gives you that hideous stero chorus automatically. Kinda like the Aaron Neville Megaphone! :p

    Thankfully, Jeff provides his own hideous stereo chorus. Welcome to 1983! But that Berlin combo is wonderful. I would have gotten it had the 12" combo not been easier to carry on a long walk (got quite a few on a regular basis).
     
  6. :p

    I have seen them, but no opportunities to try one yet.
