    Budget constraints? Get something decent sized and good headphones. Then you can rattle walls when the time is right. All other times nearly silent headphone practice that you can enjoy.

    I’ll just add that she might still hear/feel the bass even from a small unit. Headphones eliminate that.

    Another vote for GOOD headphones. She can't complain if she can't hear you. ;)

    Vox Amplug comes with its own drummer, who the wife won't hear either. :cool:

    And Zoom makes great effects units that also have built-in drum machines you can plug headphones or earbuds into.

    The headphone route is the way to go, especially when you're playing alone or need to play quietly.

    The last one I bought required a new bass to go with it. An expensive one.

    Klipsch 2.1 PC speakers works for me.
    Loud when needed and sounds really good.

  16. Probably a little more than 15 watts, say 25-30 watts would give you a better sound and not be too loud for your wife, like the Fender Rumble 25 or Ampeg BA-108.

    Traynor SB106, includes headphone Jack, great little amp.

    SB106 – Traynor Amps

    Only issue at low volume is the fan kicking in a few minutes after amp powered on.
