After about six months of searcing, saving gig money and selling off gear, I am waiting for the last piece (EA CXL-110E) to my new super modular rig of joyful tone. When that arrives my modular, yet somewhat compact rig will consist of: SWR Studio 220 - A 13lb head for low volume needs and modern sound. Works as a preamp too. Peavey DPC1000 Power amp - a 12lb amp that'll put out 500 per side @ 4 Ohms. Ampeg SVT IIP preamp - for when I want more classic tone. 2 Aguilar GS112s - For bottom and low end growl 2 EA CXL-110Es - For punch and clarity So the rig can be anywhere from 2-3 rack spaces. 4 if I add a couple of half space effects (Boss VF-1, BBE Sonic Maximizer). But right now, I am saving on space and weight by using an Aphex 1402 and a Tech21 Bass Compactor compressor. To keep things truly modular, I have 2 2-space rack cases. Total weight for a setup can be from 47-131 lbs. Power handling of the cabs is anywhere from 300-1300 watts program depending on setup. I may be a bit underpowered, but if I needed to I can use my 16lb Stewart 1400 that my band is using for PA, to give me a total of 2400 watts of power, but I don't see that as necessary (yet ). As you can tell I am really psyched. When the rig is complete I'll post a picture and give a review. Thanks to everyone who helped on on my questions regarding speaker cabs. I am on my way to a significant reduction in GAS pains.
