Well, my band is picking up steam and we are getting ready to start playing out. We play Classic/Modern rock covers. However, I am afraid that my trusty Hartke 5000 may not cut it, though. I am rehearsing with a smiley face EQ in an unfinished basement, and the rest of the band loves the groove I am putting out with that setting. Problem is, I have the vol at 5, tube pre on 6, SS pre on 5, and I am barely cutting through. Unfortunately, buying a new amp is not an option right now. We have Drums, 2 guitarists w half stacks, Keys, 4 vocalists and a 1000 watt PA w 2 15" 2 way Peavey cabs. I am playing thru the band's Peavey 115 and 210 bi amped. Here are my options for boosting volume as I see it. 1) Add my SWR WM 2x10 and WM115. This would give me about 140 more watts through 4 cabs, 4 ohms on each side. 2) The guitarist has an old Peavey 2x200 watt power amp. I could XLR out of the Hartke into the Peavey and run two cabs off of the Peavey. This would give me about 340 more watts. 3) I could flatten or frown the EQ. 4) Try to talk the band into buying a Powered Sub. We have a Yamaha 5000 powered mixer which has a sub out. Ideas?
