Ok, with all the money i've made from shoveling driveways this winter, mowing lawns, rogueing, and 'tasselin; i have about 2.5 grand. And my band is getting alot of gigs now, about 1-2 gigs every week, so i thought i'd spend it on a bigger amp setup. I'm gonna go with a preamp/poweramp/cab route. I want to spend alot of the money on good quality cabs, so I have to be stingy with the pre/poweramps. I'm thinking about just buying a new lower wattage hartke amp; maybe their 200 watt model. and using that Hartke as a pre-amp. Then I'm getting a Carvin DCM2000 poweramp and use them together. So i'll be pushing 2,000 watts. This will work, right? Oh yeah, cabs will be 2 Eden 4x10's and 2 EA 1x15 (or 18). Everyone around me is telling me to get ampeg, but I think ampeg's sound is astrocious. I'm probably alone on this one..
