    If any1 owns/played that Hartke 350Watt Combo amp pls let me know if its worth it. I need opinions. Will it be heard over 100W guitar amps? Pls fill me in on this amp.

    I seem to hear alot of people complaining about sounding underpowered with the ??3000 hartke. if you are in a band that like to really crank up then you should probably consider 500w into 4ohms or more.

    also having multiple speakers will help you be "heard" better. for example if you have one 15" 8ohm cabinet, it would be better to add another 8ohm cabinet (210,12 or 15 or 410) so that the combined ohms of both cabs will be 4ohms. you will sound louder for two reasons: having 4ohms total speaker load will help get the maximum power out of an amp AND more speakers means more air moving from your signal.

    IMPORTANT!! DO NOT combine cabinet with ohm ratings that will resuld in a "load" that is lower than the amp is rated.

    My 2 guitarists have 212 combo's, ones a crate 120 watt and the other is a lin6 212 150 watt i think.

    I play with my peavey tnt 115 150 watts, I just EQ my stuff and it's nothing but bass. My master volume is around 4-5 and my pre gain is at 4. You could get a tnt for around 450$ or close to 250-300$ used. Great combo, but it's heavey so get a cart or dolly.
