Ok, since I'm new here I'll spare you guys from an introduction and all that (although some here may know me from other boards ) as I'll let my profile and webpage do that. But I've got a question in terms of what cabs would be best. I found out that I'm going to get rid of my Carvin rig (R1000 and 4x10) just b/c I find that the sound is "ok" but still not what I'm after and also that I need a more "portable" setup. I guess Carvin cabs are naturally pretty big and bulky. Mainly something like a 2x10 and 15, 2x10 and 12's, or something like that. Well I've came to the conclusion I want to go with a poweramp/preamp thing as I feel it's something new I haven't tried and it seems to be more flexible. With that in mind, i'm going with a QSC poweramp and a Sansamp RBI. QSC poweramps are pretty cheap and have gotten good reviews from what I've heard and I've also heard all kinds of great things about the Sansamp. Now that you know that I'm in the decision of what cabs to go with this setup. Since portability is a concern I've looked at many different brands of cabs (Ampeg, SWR, Ashdown...) and came up with 3 that offer really good portability and they are: SWR, Aguilar, and Ashdown. Problem is I don't know which one to pick. I am familiar with SWR's sound (and like it to some extent) but know very little, if nothing, about Ashdown and Aguilar. As for my sound, I like the SWR tone but I want something warmer in which I'm sure the Sansamp can do that. But I'd say anything that's decently hi-fi but still has balls, guts, and punch would be fine. I play mainly rock but occasionally I may sit in with my dad's country band if he needs a bassist (yuck ) or play for this one punk band if they need a bassist...but other than just good rock, with maybe a hint of metal. But anyways, now that you know what I'm up against, which cab do you think would work best?
