Would a TC Electronic BG250 be an upgrade volume wise over....

    ....my Hartke Kickback 12?
    It's 30 pounds 250 watts into a 15 inch speaker.
    Or would I need to go with the 70 pound BG500 (500 watts into a 15)

    I was considering getting a second Hartke KB12 and running them both together but have learned that it could be a shock hazard if hooked up incorrectly. I need decent tone and enough volume to do a medium bar band size stage. Most likely will have PA support but not always.
  2. Obviously, others can tell you better, but I had a demo over the weekend a few back. Unfortunately, I had a cancellation and didn't get to try it with the band, but I got the impression that it can handle things up to the point that PA support is called for (at least, that would be the case in my situation).

    I can't imagine that it wouldn't be a decent step up from a 12 inch combo.

    Thanks. Still mulling over these two options.
