    For my new rig, I ws thinking of buying a Yamaha SW1x18 PA Sub. They sound great for bass, plus they cost next to nothing.

    I need some ideas for a top cabinet to go with this.

    I play 7 string, in a progressive rock band. It's not like I need my rig to be insanely loud. We are in the forming processes now, but the drummer isn't heavy handed. When we get a guitarist, I'm sure he won't run a 100 watt head full blast the whole time. :rolleyes:

    I was thinking of a used SWR Henry Jr. 4x8 or a used SWR Bigfoot 2x12 or their new 2x12.

    10s are ok, but 4x10 cabs are too heavy. Lets say the cab has to be less than 75 lbs, so I can lift it myself.

    For my amp, I'll probably get an Aguilar DB659 pre-amp into a Carvin DCM power amp, probably the 1000 watt one.

    An suggestions? Thanks, ahead of time.
