ok so my bands guitar players just got their new fender twin-amps @ 100watts and they are loud. im worried i wount be able to cu through on my MIA p bass.

right now i have an acoustic b100 @ 100watts. im looking at fender just because we will all have fenders and that would be cool but am also looking at ampeg. what wattage should i be loking for to cut through those tube fender guitar amps? or will 100 watt still work?

buy another B100 and an A+B+Y switch.

then biamp.

well my option is cheaper.

a B200 might work too.

also see Ashdown, Carvin, you don't really need 2 speakers, it will move more air.

How much cash do you have to spend?

Well I will assume that neither guitarists is turning up his amp past 5, otherwise no amount of wattage would let you hear ANYTHING
Wait, is it 100 watts COMBINED or EACH. I'm also gonna assume combined, I don't think Fender makes many 100 watt guitar amps.

How you should best go about this is really dependent on how much cash you want and what kind of a sound you go for. If you go for a low bassy "vintage" sound you may want to either get another 15" combo or sell yours and get a highish end 15. If you prefer a more bright tone/modern, you may want to look at getting a 2x10 combo or something. But if you DO get a 2x10 combo, keep your 1x15, a 2x10 doesn't push enough bottom for me, not even close to enough.

actually its not combined. the only 100 watt amp fender made. we had 5 grand, each guitar amp cost 15 hundred so that 2 grand left for me and i dont want to use it all.

in most situations they dont go past 3 lol. but at 3 i cant be heard on my b100 (without a lot of distortion) . so i thought we all have fender guitars MIA in the same style and color why not all have fender amps right

Depends. What kind of tone do you like? The fatness of a 15, or the cut of a 10? Or the best of both worlds - a 12? Also, what price range?

I like Humanity's idea, it is cheap, however, it may not be worth the 'cheap' part of it in the future as you turn to gigging and need something more professional.

Get a Hartke 3500, and a 4x10 if you like high/ mids, or a 2x15 if you like fat lows.

EDIT: Looking at your post now. I don't exactly like Fender amps. They have to be in the high price range to be good, I think. Look at Ashdown perhaps, nice british tone. Or, if you want a nice crunch with growl, shoot your 2 grand at Ampeg, and grab a good head + 4x10 or what have you.

i like the sound of my acoustic 1x15 now but it is a little too bassy for us. we get some comments like man that bass is up a little too high. and i have to tell them that its just the lows and if i go lower you wont hear the highs.

so maybe a 2x10 or 2x12 is a better solution

ratins seem good as well. is that a good choice?

that'll keep great highs and still have good lows. the cab was designed to handle lows much better than the average 4x10. and the eq on the amp is godly so you could get a great tone no matter what.

Fender isn't particularly good for bass amps. I say you look at Gallien-Krueger. The 1001-RBII head will suit your needs when paires with a Neo 410 cab.
