I’m looking to buy a new bass head and cabinet. I’m still a pup since, I’ve been playing for only 2 years (don’t worry…I haven’t quit my day job). Some gigs are coming up that, I believe, will require more bottom than I can produce. I currently play through a 120W Hartke KickBack 15 and I’ve never been very pleased with it…more than enough for personal practice, not big enough to overcome a zealous drummer. It would actually perform well as an on-stage monitor, but we don’t have enough PA to run bass through it. I need some seasoned players’ opinions of what you have found to be helpful in determining what equipment to buy. The sky is NOT the limit. I’m budgeting $1200-1500.
2, 4, 8 ohms
Is there a formula of wattage to room size?
4X10 vs. 1X18 vs. 2X15
What really matters?
