so ive been into bass for a few years now, just recently getting into it more seriously in a serious band (very proggy). ive got the whole tone/sound value of my playing down, but i need help when it comes to the technical side as it can be very complicated for someone just getting into some serious equipment. some information id like includes: . exactly how do ohms & watts interact. . what are the pros/cons of different makes of speakers (magnet size, wood choice for casing, etc) . how does wood affect the tone of a bass . how exactly does a sonic maximizer work and any other general advice is welcome when it comes to the small nuances that make a big difference in sound. thank you so much in advance & i look forward to talking to many of you in the future & learning more.
