    I'm curious how much power you guys have. So I started this thread.
    1. Your wattage must come from one set-up. So, if your head can't handle that extra cabinet laying around then it's not included.
    2. Extra points for telling us your set-up.
    3. And extra points for pics.
    4. Don't cheat it's lame.

    Ok me first,
    Ibanez SR905 :to: Boss OD-3 :to: GK 700RB/115
    I believe that's 400watts of woofer and 50watts of horn.

    Spector NS2000/5 -or- Ibanez EDA905"DF" (De-Fretted :D) ---> Aguilar DB680 Pre ---> Aguilar DB728 Power ---> Aguilar GS212 cabinet.

    The DB728 is a 400W tube amp, and the GS212 is rated at 600W RMS. Here is a pic of the DB680/DB728 (I wish I had a picture of them on top of the GS212, but I don't):

    200 watts

    Amp: Trace AH200
    Cabs: Any combination of homebuild 12" cab and Trace 15" cab.

    Single 12" for jazz, practice, lightweight and compact
    Trace 15" for old-style rock
    15" and 12" combined to get any message across, loud & clear :cool:

    I usually carry one 15 and one 12 for my electric bass rig, but occasionally it's fun to run all four cabs. PLX 2402, 3 EV and 1 Selenium coax drivers, homebrewed cabs.

  10. Vintage SVT 300 watts all tube and 4 ohm 810 cabinet.
  11. 350 Watts

    Ampeg SVT 350H + SVT210HE + SVT15E

    Here is a pic of part of it, back when I was using an Avatar B210

    I use a stewart 2.1 so depending on how many cabinets i use and if i bridge the amp or not i run it at from 400 watts (one side into an 8 ohm cabinet) to 2100 watts (bridge mono into a 4 ohm load)

    That said, i wish i had lockout's amp :crying:

    I love my iAmp 800. 800w into 4 ohms, through an Acme B-4 at church and a B-2 at home. It would put a kilowatt into both cabinets (2 ohms) and barely get warm. No tubes to replace or go microphonic and great tone-shaping when needed. Clean, sweet, & solid. I'm not a dealer, just enjoying my (Finally!) dream rig.

    QSC RMX 1450

    = 1400 watts

    my hartke goes 200w at 4 ohms, but since i only have one 8 ohm cab, i guess i have 100w. plenty loud enough for me though.

    475 watts at 4 ohms. Mmmm... Peavey Max 700 and 410TVX

    Uh... when I get another cab... it'll be 700 watts at 2 ohms. does that count for anything?
  19. QSC USA900 --- Avatar b212 4ohm --- Avatar b115 8 ohm = 725 watts! :bassist:

    Well, if I had a reason, my rig could consist of:

    Eden WT-800 head
    Eden D-410XLT
    Eden D-210XLT
    Eden D-115XL
    with WT-800 direct out to:

    QSC PLX 3402
    (2) JBL MR-918 18-inch subs
    (2) JBL MR-835 15-inch + 8-inch + horn
    (2) Mackie SWA 1501 subs (600-watts each, powered)

    Anyway, in accordance with the rules, I left out my WT-300.

    So, let's see. At 4 ohms the PLX puts out 1100 watts a side, so there's 2200, plus 800 for the WT-800, plus 1200 for the Mackie subs, so what's that?

    4200 watts. One of my daydreams is to set all of that up in my garage, take some photos, then proceed to blow out a few windows in the neighborhood.
