PostSubject: What should i gett   Mon Dec 14, 2009 4:28 pm

which cab should i get that can go with this setup. i cant get loud enough to go overthe drums and guitart. what are my options and what should i get if i want a nice tone but that can go over the other instruments.

heres my setup

Behringer ultrabass bx4500h



GK backline 410

i was thinking of getting this http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Acoustic-B410-400W-4x10-Bass-Cabinet?sku=600775

but its a little out of price range. what could get me good volume and not fart while getting to a decent volume with my setup?

Unfortunately Bobo, part of the problem is your Behringer head isn't truly putting out the 450 watts it's rated for. I read a review from a tech who put one on a scope, and reported that it was only putting out about half this, so I am inclined to think that it's Behringer being a bit optimistic.

But you can still make your rig louder with the right cabinets, so let's start by asking how much can you spend on an upgrade.

Yeah the price range is key. But Right off the top of my head, I can think of a couple of cheap brands that I've heard people speak highly of, such as Avatar or Seismic Audio. A lot of people chase wattage in the amp and power handling in the cabs, but that isn't a good gauge of how loud your setup is going to be. Getting another 4x10 is a good choice because there's four more speakers as opposed to just one more with a 1x15. More speakers will let you move more air and be louder.

Your best bet would be to look for a used cab. Check Craigslist or a local used music shop and see if you can find anything that'll suit you.

No. It would work fine. As far as I know, you can't under power a cab, just don't over power it.

you can underpower a cab ... but with bass wattage the tolerances are extreme. you probably wouldnt notice the effects untill you try to crank 200W into 1000W of cabs.

this is why i just upgraded my head to more wattage ... 300W into 900W of speakers was deteriorating the sound at higher volumes ... like you bobo; couldnt hear it over the drummer all the time.

but yes ... this cabinet would do you justice.
