I'm looking at buying my first "full" rig. Cabinet. Head. In my mind, I've been looking at Dr. Bass, Avatar and Carvin cabs. Either 2x10, 2x12 or maybe even a 4x10. I don't need to hell of a lot of sound, but I know it's hard to compete with a distorted guiter or loud cymbal sometimes. But, it's part of the game. I'm thinking 500watts. And I think I understand the whole Ohms thing, but not completely. I read through the FAQs and such. And I understand my electricity, but I'm still getting loss. In my mind, I'm thinking bout running 4ohms with 500watts. But, I don't think I'd have an issue running 8ohms either. I've also thought about, over time maybe picking up at 1x15" to "bottom" out the whole rig. But, I won't be in a metal or hardcore band with screaming musicians. The heavier things I'll be doing are kind of old school rock or modern alternative, but there won't be as much distortion and straight up "rocking". As for the head, I was thinking 500watts and 4ohms or 8ohms as well. I just don't understand the wattage to ohms and ohms to ohms numbers enough to know what to get. There's no price limit really, but I'm not going to go buy the best stuff [yet]. I just want what will sound the best for the price with good quality. Thanks in advanced for my "newbie"-ness to amps.
