    Ok, my parents offered me about up to $700 dollars to spend on an amp, or an amp on a head. The less money I spend will go to a head...

    Avatar 4x10 = 1400watts RMS for $350

    SWR Goliath 4x10 (used) = 750watts RMS for $600

    Ampeg 6x10 (used, classic series) = 600watts RMS for about $650

    :bassist: _-soto-_:bassist:
     
  2. i have an avatar, very well worth it. if you want more money for the head, go for the avatar-the swr and ampeg are seriously overrated for there prices.

    If you are talking about spending $350 for a head and $350 for a cab, it seems your only choice is an Avatar. There is nothing wrong with it; it's a lot of cab for the money. It's more like $400 delivered I suspect. You could probably find a used Peavey 4x10 for the same money or cheaper at a local store.

    That leaves you $300-$350 for a used head (or a new one if you are very careful).
