most basses i play with use 500 watt amps. i have a 200 watt 2x10" + tweeter and its just loud enough for a loud practice. thankfully the bassists i play have ample equipment.

500 and up would be optimal imo.

i'd recommend a couple cabs, a 4x10 and a 2x15.

I'm not a full-time bassist; however, I used to have an Ampeg SVT CL (300 watts) and the matching 810 monster cab.

I've since dialed it down to a 412 bass cab (louder and punchier than any 410), a 215 (with a crossover for the mid-range speaker) through a 200W Traynor YBA200. It'll keep up with a very loud drummer and not get lost even with 2 guitarists going through high gain amps and 412s.

There are some really nice and very capable SS bass amps, in the $500 or less price range, spewing 400W and up. I've ran one of those tiny MarkBass amps through the 215 at a local bar and it kept up with our manic drummer.

If I understand it correctly, you have 2 tube amps that aren't being used? Might sound stupid, but can't your bassist play through either of those that has the best clean channel, through his bass cab? The bassist in my band plays through a guitar amplifier, through bass cabs and he sounds phenomenal.

I'm not paying 500 usd for him to wreck a guitar amp and/or cab that isn't mine. The bugera head is the second cheapest thing in the room. The cheapest thing and only bass cab in that room is a harke 115, so I'm not throwing those two together. I'm definatly not trashing the boutique head in there either. I used I just didn't like it, better than the bugera though. (Its a redbear not a splawn)

To blacktiger Ill adjust his eq like you said so that will help as well, also for the log video.

I will look into moving the bass amp as well that should help as well.

Why would you destroy it? As long as the bass cab can handle the wattage, there's nothing wrong. My bassist has been playing bass through various guitar amps for years, through bass-cabs, of course. Guitar speakers would be destroyed.

this is what i get for not specifying SS.
