Ok, so I'm looking at changing my rig up. As I've been browsing everything that's out there right now, I've noticed that it seems like heads are getting higher and higher wattages, and it doesn't seem like there are enough high wattage cabs to keep up with them. My ideal thought is to get a head and two 2x10 cabs. One 2x10 would be plenty to keep up at practice, and if we're playing bigger shows, I want the option of adding a second 2x10. It seems like the lowest wattage amps with decent features are all at least 500w now. I understand a bit about ohm rating and all of that and if I get one that's 500w at 4ohms and run it into an 8ohm cab it will basically cut that in half, so we're looking at 250w, and even that is hard to find in a 2x10. Am I the only one that's had this problem? I don't want to spend a LOT of money. I also don't want to haul a giant cab all over creation. I guess I'd consider myself more of a hobbyist...I know I'm never going to be a pro bass player, but I do want a good sound, and I know what sounds good. Any input from anyone? Similar experiences? What did you do? Throw wattage ratings on cabs to the wind? Assume wattage ratings on heads are fluffed a bit?
