    I'm upgrading from an Ampeg B50R to another combo in the $500-700 range. I loved the Ampeg, but when placed alongside a drummer and two screaming guitars, it didn't take long to realize I needed more juice...

    I played through a Nemesis 1x15 at a local store and loved the tone. I've seen other configurations and am considering the 2x10, 2x12 and 4x10 as well, although I haven't played through them. So here's a few questions:

    1. Anyone have experience with one of these? If so, is it loud enough to run with a classic rock/blues band in a small-med club? Also, which speaker config is best? I play a Warwick Thumb and love its clarity - don't want to sacrifice that. Reviews I've seen rate the 2x10 very highly, but I can't believe they would keep up.

    2. If not a Nemesis, what are your recommendations for other combos in that price range?

    Thanks for your advice.
