    I am thinking of buying a better amp head for my Ampeg 6x10 cab and i was wondering what you think about a sunn coloseum?

    It'd be an interesting combo, I'd think. They aren't too expensive on eBay, and if you don't like it, you could sell it for what you got it.

    Pretty good amps, I like my Coliseum 300 quite a bit.
     
  4. I had one 20 years ago and like it a lot. I'd describe the sound as being rather anonymous. Good, but not particularly memorable.
     
  5. I had a Sunn years ago. Good and loud. One thing I'd recommend (as I surely can't remember) is check that the cab is not below the ohm rating of the amp. I ran the Sunn into a cab that was lower then what the amp liked and it'd let you know by shutting down.

    What do you have for a head now? Which Coliseum version are you looking at?

    I also used to have a Sunn Coliseum. It is a good and loud amp with non remarkable but very usable tone (depending on speaker config.).
