So, I recently picked up a bass and amp for a song, one of the perks of living in Music City. The bass ran me $40 (seperate post worthy), and the combo is an Acoustic B10. While it's nothing to write home about, per se, the amp hits all the points I was looking for: it's small, simple, reliable and makes sound. What I don't like is how quickly it starts to break up, and how not-very-loud-at-all it is. Let me temper this with the following: it's a 10W solid state amp with a 10" speaker. My expectations ARE NOT high. Still, I'd love to squeeze a few more db out of it, as I'm giving it (and the bass) to my sister's kids in ND, who will be competing with a drum kit and guitar (practice) amp right out of the gate. Furthermore, ND is a magical and relatively uninhabited place, where things like amp-techs and craigslist are about as foreign a concept as vehicles with air conditioning (my truck came from MN, I now live in TN). So.... Has anyone ever swapped the 10" speaker out on one of these, or tried to port the box itself? If I had a bit more time, I might try to swap out a xformer for something else, even if only for grins, and see if that helps, but I think the boat is gonna sail before I'd even identify parts and get 'em shipped. What say you, mighty TB forums? Any suggestions other than the obvious (being, why don't you get a different amp)?
