    Im looking to upgrade from the little 112 combo ive been using to a larger rig, and from what ive seen in my price range (which isnt a whole lot) the Peavey Headliner 410 and 115 caught my eye. Has anyone had experience with these? (What they sound like, good for the money, etc).

    What are your needs, and what is your budget?

    Starting to play larger gigs, and budget for both cabs would be 800$ or at least trying to keep it under that

    GK is a good cab, and a good bang for the buck. Fender Rumbles also get lot of love here. GK is more of a modern, brighter tone - Fender is more vintage. I don't have any experience with the recent Peavey. I would find a store and see if you can play them.

    You say for the cabs - do you have a head?

    I've got the 2x10 that sounds pretty good with the Peavey Minimax head.

    You could get 2 Carvin Micro Bass cabs for about $500 and then have some money leftover for pedals. A pre amp or dirt is what I would go with.

    Just picked up a Headliner 112 from a local music store news for $200 out the door with a 3 year warranty. Great sounding cab.

    I had a peavey headliner 410 for a while. I liked how it was a sealed cab. but thought the tone of the speakers was horrible. I replaced the speakers in it and it sounded great but could have bought a much better cab with the money I had invested in it. I would go for the rumble 410 for a low cost cab.

    I haven't used a headliner but I did just buy a Rumble 200 with a 15 earlier this week and I am really liking it. I did lots of research and played the few combos I could and decided on the 200.

    It's loud enough for me and the bands I play with in small to medium sized bars/clubs and it's light and easy to move around.

    My P bass loves playing through it!

    A friend of mine has the Rumble 500 with the 2 10s and it also sounds great.

    You could pick up a 200 (449.00) and a Rumble 115 extension cab (299.00) (for larger/outdoor gigs) for under 800.

    Good luck in your search!
