Recommend me a cheap, lightweight combo amp that goes low

    Well, it took a few gigs but I am all in on this IEM thing. So much in fact that I had considered going completely amp-less but the only thing holding me back is that I like feeling that bass behind me and on the floor.

    So, an amp-less setup is probably not for me but do want to downsize and I don't want to keep hauling out my high end Mesa or Berg gig rigs when all I really need is basically a personal subwoofer. I'm hoping I can find a cheap, small, lightweight combo that can thump just enough to compliment what I'm hearing in my IEMs. I don't care if it sounds like do-do because my Subway DI is feeding what I and the rest of the band hear in our ears and any sound the combo amp makes will most definitely get drowned out by our FOH mix (also my Subway DI feed).

    Any recommendations out there? :thumbsup:

    If I were you I'd get over not having an amp. Sure, having an amp is fun, but in your case it sounds superfluous.

    Easy. Cheap + lightweight + low = fender rumble.

    I run a Tonehammer or ampeg pf 50 t into a barefaced cab for the same purpose. But that is the expensive and lightweight solution.
