    well i've decided to get a hartke 4.5XL and a hartke amp new since my auction went awry. for the amp, should i get the 3500 or the 5000? it seems to me if i am only going to be using 1 cab at 8 ohms that i would need the 5000 to be able to drive the 4x10 cab to its fullest. i think i can afford the price difference between the two, if it's necessary, but is it?

    IF you can afford more power, buy it. You can never have too much headroom.
