    Im in the market for a new stack (half or full), The max I really want to spend is $1200 USD ($1400 CDN). I am looking at one of these two premade stacks: http://www.music123.com/SWR-WorkingMan-s-4004-Bass-Full-Stack-i97001.music
    I though also considering a few other head/cab combonations. Please give your comments on these two stacks and if you don't agree with either one please reccomend another head/cab. Keep in mind I play a 5 string (Ibanez SR905), I play all styles of music but mostly rock/metal...ish stuff and jazz/funk.

    How bout neither?
    The best cabs for the price is definately Avatar: www.avatarspeakers.com
    Go for the 212 for now, its plenty. As for a head, what do you play? If you are playing some metal/rock, go for a Traynor YBA-200, and though it says 200 watts, its all tube so it'll sound like about 800 watts. If you aren't playing rock, or if you want something lighter, go for the Kustom Groovebass. The Traynor is between $600-$700, the Kustom runs for $500-$600. The Avatar 212 after shipping is about $300. Or you could go for a 410 neo, which is pretty light, for $400 after shipping.

    the SWR by a long shot. but dont buy 'em new. find 'em on ebay for waaaaaaay cheap.

    and POM's suggestions are quite inviting. would definitely check those out, too.

    Exactly, you'd be seriously deprived if you didnt.
