    hey guys im normally a guitar player but got a gig playing with a biker type rockband that has reputation for playing very very very loud... old bass player had an ampeg svt with 8 10 cab and a acoustic 370 with 18 folded horn so yep.... gotta make some noiz
    lots of deaf bikers in dorothy land where i live

    well my rig so far is a btb 565 bass a cord and an ART prochannel tube vocal preamp compressor channel going into a crown 602..... just stuff i had around the house for recording and live... if i ran 4 4x10 cabs @2ohm it would be like 800 watts per side

    anyhow id like to use it as im a poor broke basterd....
    my plan is to get 2 410 cabs buy one at a time of course then play a couple gigs and add on ... cheap ones like a harke or acoustic or behringer and just plan on blowing speakers sooner rather than later and replacing them with quality drivers from a wholesaler....

    for example.... does the cab itself make that much diff in sound if it has good drivers in it.... would a behringer sound bad with eminece kilos or something selineum or what ever i have yet to decide on drivers.. sorry for the mispellin

    my thought is that i may be able to get a abetter final product or am i all wet on this.... i used to work for a hometheater manufacture and familiar with the "quality" of drivers put into finished products.. usually the cheapist they can get by with

    im a noob to bass rigs as a guitar player but this was the plan... do i need to rethink it or any other suggestions... again im only gonna be able to spend 300$ or so a pop and i need something to start giggn with

    also can you even make a rig that sounds good out of a crown power amp and an art tube prochannel... it has tube compression and a million tone knobs... its just rock and roll no slapping needed

    Yes, the cabinet itself is a major compnent in the overall sound of a bass cab. Better to get middle of the road cabs, then cheap crappy ones. Great speakers in a crap cab still sounds like crap. Decent speakers in a great cab sound way better.

    Don't waste money on low quality cabs...I went that route for a few months. Sounds like junk and I hate moving the cab around (a 100lb GK BLX410). I much prefer the Mesa 2x15 I bought off craigslist which is not only lighter but looks sexier and sounds better :)
