    Need some info from you to give a good answer. What type of music do you play, with or without a band, bass type, your playing style and experience, etc. etc. The more you can tell us, the more accurate the response can be.

    . . . . .But not loud enough.

    I think youre only choice in that budget would be used Ashdown Mag Combos. ;)

    Nope never played one, played an ashdown and marshalll, and an orange, would love the orange but money seems to be a problem with that.
