(NCD) My Mesa Subway stack now towers over my Marshall full stack.

    OK. OK. It's a full "micro" Marshall stack. But the Subway 12" fills the bill for me and ends the GAS attacks hopefully for a long time. :whistle:

    I have been looking at various 112's and 2x112's to use with, or in place of, the 15's for an additional/different sound personality if you will. With too many choices, (did I just say that?:jawdrop:) and so many brands to choose from, I just couldn't begin to cull the herd and feel like I was making the best choice.

    I decided to go back to my original plan of 2x115" and a 112" Subway cabs. I just plugged it in and noodled a bit and I do notice a different tone to that of the larger 15's. I think it will make a very good addition. Can't wait to start dialing tones! BTW that's my first p bass, new as well sharing the spotlight. New horizons!

    hmm, seems the Subway goes down to 2 Ohms :wideyed:

    Yes, it does in fact drive 2 ohms.

    But . . . . but . . . .If I do that then I'll need a D-800+ for the stereo Ric (which I don't have) and then . . .
  9. Then with that D-800+ it will also take four cabs, so...
    The Double, Double double. :eek:

    The rise of Quadzillas.

    I have two of the 112s and I love it. I switched the badges around too so they are now vertical. Gives you a little taller stack. I power mine with a VT500 though....didn't have the funds for the Mesa head. But it does the job well and those cabs are excellent! I bet those 15s are great too!

    What 15's were you using before, and how do the subway 15's compare?

    Nice setup... I would add water to the Marshalls, as well as some sunlight... they'll catch up in no time...

    I've been using two of the 15s with a 12 on top (just like that) in a loud bar band for some time. IMHO, it absolutely kills. Best amp rig I've ever used, and easy enough to cart around.

    There's a switch on the back of the D-800 and D-800+: 4 or 8 ohms in one position, 2 ohms in the other. It's a great feature, and makes a modular rig of small cabs viable at high volume levels.
