    Chorus or reverb. Can't go wrong with a rack-mount reverb.

    Change your EQ?

    This doesn't sound like an FX forum problem. If you'd come here saying "My bass doesn't sound enough like a jet engine at take-off" you might get more responses.

    A BBE sonic maximiser or Aphex Aural exciter would give you more perceivable low end and rumble that eq alone cannot achieve, almost like you've got bigger/more speakers, but without getting muddy by adding artificial low harmonics and other black magic jiggery-pokery.. They can also had more high-end content that make the glassy harmonics shimmer and sparkle. I call them a nice control, as you turn the knobs up and it magically adds 'nice' to your sound. But, the flip side is to be gentle with them, as it's easy to overcook the effect to the detriment of your mids.

    You really need to try one out to fully hear what they do to your sound. Behringer actually make their own (ultramizer?) that's actually quite good.

    The Aphex 204 is a rackmount aural exciter and if it functions like the Bass Xciter which I've owned in the past....it will go a long way to making a so so rig sound a lot bigger and a little more hi-fi. Sorry The demo linked doesn't sound that great but poke around and you may find some interesting things on these two.

    how about a boost of some kind. a devi ever darko boost or a nice analog octave pedal may suit your needs.

    And your point being? Personally I've never been able to get the same sound from an eq without getting muddy. There's a lot more to it than just being a parametric eq.

    Regardless, if it does the job, it does the job. Doesn't matter how or why it works.

    If I'm not mistaken, your cab is 125W RMS (continuous). Before you go nuts with a rack solution (which will NOT be a solution, IMO), I honestly think you should consider replacing the cab with something more substantial.

    No amount of effects or rack enhancers will make up for a cab that can't keep up at high volumes during a gig.
