    I think I got it. I believe this is a great setup. I already know the amp is killer. but I'm not sure bout the avatars. Ive heard good stuff about them but never tried them.

    The setup I am thinking about would be an

    - SWR Workingmans 4004
    - Avatar B212 - 2x12
    - Avatar 4x10

    I heard good stuff bout the avatars and the price is great man. Can I get sme ofyour opinions on this setup plz. I am not gigging but I need more power for practices. The 2x2 should giv me a great low sound and I need the 4x10 to punch out the guitar. How good is thissetup. Everythng shold come out to about 1000-1200 dollars. Is it worth it and is this a great setup for what I need? I play with a guitarist who has a 120 watt combo. I should get everything I need from this right?

    If there is something better than the cab or hads or a completely diferent setup, plz feel free to ask. My price range would be about 1500 cuz I am looking to get this setup in mybe a few months after skule ends.

    man if you have $1200, get an avatar 410, qsc rmx 1450 and a preamp (ampeg svp-pro or sans amp rack mount)

    you will have up to 900 watts of headroom.

    i do r&b and covers, nothing heavy. i don't think i play very lound on stage (the groups that i play with have large PA as well), in fact some even ask me to turn up my amp a little.

    just my opinion, but the swr 4004 is a bit underpowered.

    i would rather have headroom.

    BTW, in case you are wondering why i recommended the above, just check my profile!!! :D

    hope this helps and for the avatar, use the search feature - you will find tons of info, in fact, you will find tons on the qsc and ampeg
