    i found a trace 2x10 combo. 300 watts. and put that on top of my crate 410.
    or sell my crate 410 and get a new sunn 2x15 cab and keep my trace commando head and get a power amp?
    i found out that it isn't my basses that don't have the right sound! it is my cab!!! damnit!!!
    so is $350 good for a new sunn cab?
    i use a MIA jazz bass if that makes a difference.
    thanks

    I'd say get rid of the crate... fast. If you don't like your sound then I bet its not the Trace Elliot or the MIA fender. I haven't heard Sunn's 2x15 but I love 15's and thats a great deal. Get a power amp for your commando if you like the trace sound.

    Sunn 2x15's are really nice. I say go for it. However it only handles 300 watts so don't go overboard on the poweramp.

    i played on the sunn today. it sounded alright.
    but i also played on a trace 410. WOW!!!!!
    it was so much louder than any cab. very effecient!!!!!! and it sounded awsome!!! only $909.
    i have to find one used. i am getting one as soon as possible. and a 15 to go with it. and a power amp. something huge. not really. 800 watts or so.
    just so i won't have to go through a pa.
    all tho' i heard a really nice hartke rig at warp tour.
    the xl cab. and a hartke head. very loud and a lot of bottom end. with a cirus 5
