My cover band is currently looking for shows and several of the places do not have PA Support, some don't even have stages. We want to play for: fun, free alcohol, and money, if we can get it. We play Alternative, 90's rock, and some classic rock. Bands like: The Killers, Ramones, Ataris, Sublime, Foo Fighters, Lit, Blur, Green Day and so on. I play a 5 string Spector Euro bass which gives me just about any sound I want. I am a finger style player, I use a pick when needed, and slap every now and then. So versatility is important to me. My current rig consists of two Ampeg SVT 410hlf's, GK 1001RB as the pre-amp, Crown XTI 4000 power amp, all pumping over 1000 watts into each cabinet in stereo mode. The Ampeg Cabs are not giving me the tone I want out of them. I am looking to get the sound of the strings on my bass to come through the speakers more accurately. I feel the Ampeg 410hlf's project a massive amount of mud with little to no string definition. Along with that, at 97DB SPL, the Ampeg cabs are not very efficient and require me to pump all the power I can into them for enough volume over my band; singer, two guitarists, and a loud drummer. Guitarists have 100 watt tube amps and run through 412 and the other guy uses a 212. The guitarists collectively are not crazy loud, we actually set our levels prior to practice starting. The Drummer is a loud one (ever met a quiet one? ) with a custom drum set made purely out of Maple - it thunders pretty loud. We have two JBL EON 15's for the vocals - loud enough to be heard. I am looking for two cabinets (preferably two 410's) to give me louder low end (40hz-100hz), more midrange articulation (400-700hz), and clear highs (2khz-8khz). I want the cabinets to be much more versatile than the Ampeg's - it seems the Ampeg's give you one sound regardless of what you plug into it. I like the sound of my bass and I want use that tone as much as possible with only some coloration of the pre-amp. I need cabs that can really SPREAD sound and hold their own in small outdoor shows. I have heard Schroeders can do exactly what I want, I plan to try them out, but is there anything else out there that I should look at? I want to keep as many options open as I can. Thank you for your help.
