Need Help on Amp setups!!!

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by skit_skittson, Jan 26, 2002.


  1. This is my situation, right now I have a 100 watt Kustom combo. I want a larger amp that I can still haul around but gets me as loud as I need. I want a 4x10 cabinet, a bass head, and a power amp. Any suggestions would be very helpful.
     
  2. If you have a HEAD you dont need a POWERAMP because the head is a power amp and a preamp

    :rolleyes: Way to be rude.

    I think he meant that he wants a preamp, poweramp, and a cab.

    Either that, or he wanted to run the preamp out into the poweamp's in jack, and use the poweramp to add additional wattage. :)
     
  4. Exactly. The head I want is an Ampeg B2r. It's not a ton of watts so I want a QSC power amp to run it through. That way I can get as loud as I need. I want to run that through a 4x10 cabinet with a horn. Probably an Ampeg or SWR.

    Skit, I think it might be a wise idea to just go with an Ampeg preamp, rather than dishing out the extra $$ for the entire head, which you won't even use the power section of anyway.

    I believe the Ampeg preamp is an SVP? (I'm not positive)

    ...just a suggestion... :)
     
  6. Not only that, but you'll get a better preamp out of it. Pro-series preamp. Definately go with that over the B2R
