    im looking in to buying a promethean P500H head and a promethean P115C cab...a few questions..does anyone know a cheaper brand that still has the same high end punchy sound? Also what size speaker should the cab have to be high end sounding? I ask because i currently have a GK backline 600 and MBX cab and im sick and tired of the low ends that it produces.

    I really like the P500H. But if money is tight the Carvin BX500 is on sale right now.
    Gen Benz Focus FCS-115T cost less and weighs less than the P115C.
    Maybe even check out the FCS-112T. Maybe a pair of those would work for you if you are looking for more mid range punch.

    IMO/IME these are not "cheap" cabs. They are quality cabs at a good value.

    good luck

    +1 on the Carvin BX500. I think you would be pleasently surprised by it. I have the BX1500 which is basically two BX500s side by side and love it. BX500 running $359 this week only. Lowest price yet.

    I also own the Promethean P300H head (P3115) and compared to the Carvin it sounds very round and old school. I like it a lot. The Carvin sounds more modern (read Hi-Fi) to me.
