    I havent had the chance with this combination yet but i was wondering what it would be like. To have to low-end speakers and a pieazo. Would the sound be too bassy ...if that even possable or would it be a genraly smooth bass response?... advice? comments.

    A Big Ben actually sounds pretty good by itself depending on what you drive it with and the type of bass used. It's Bag End driver is quite fast for an 18. What it will give you is plenty of low-end heft. I use one occasionally with an SWR Bass 750 and it's very nice, especially for jazz gigs with a fretless--nice 'n warm.
