Hi everybody.. this is my first post on this site... so i'd just like to say hi first of all... But down to business, come October I'd like to upgrade my bass rig from the Gallien Kruger 280w Head I use now to a tour ready rack that can power my Ampeg Classic 8x10", as well as my Ampeg Classic 4x10" simultainiously at times. So... I've done my asking around, trips to Guitar Center, internet browsing and I've got a guess on what I'd like to get, and I'm hoping you folks can help me out. So for Power the QSC RMX1450 caught my eye .. it can run in mono bridge mode to power the 8x10" .. but then i can kick it into stereo mode to run the 8x10" and 4x10" from what I gather. Other products like SWR 750 Power Amp had me during the begining of my search due to it's simplicity but it seems like something like the QSC would out live it and out preform it for almost $400 less. Preamp wise I'm really really interested in the new Line 6 Bass Podxt Live Pedal because from the sounds of it it can do everything a preamp can do short of some good equalization (including sex up the studio recordings ) . For EQ I was thinking something such as this DBX 31-band dohickey. Now I've heard alot of good things about Sonic Maximizers and if I've heard correctly they can do some great things, so I'd like to add in this BBE 482i model as well. Also, the singer in my band also plays bass and will be selling or handing down his power conditioner and rack so I've got that solid. Anyway, I hope I haven't been to bold to ask some help on this, I figure it's quite a bit of money to spend so i'd like to spend it as wisely as possible. Thanks for whatever input you guys can give me!! I could use it!!
