I'm looking to upgrade from my practice combo, now that the band I'm currently playing bass in is starting to talk about gigs with other bands. I played the Peavey Tour 450 at GC last week...and I really liked it...especially for the price. It played better than the other heads I tried in the price range. I currently have a 410 cab but my old bands bass player used a 410 and 115 stack setup and it was godly. I love the tone of the 115 and the mids of the 410s. There wasn't a 115 in the store I went to so I just played through the matching Peavey 410 cab. My question is: is the 450 watts enough to power my 410 and a 115 when I buy it? Both cabs peak at 1200 I believe and are both 8 ohms. Will this setup be enough to be heard at small gigs? We have a PA system that we mic through, but if I ever need to go without mic'ing will it be loud enough? Anybody else used this amp yet?

I've got the Tour 700 head and the 115 cab. I like it quite a bit.

About the power: The 450 puts out 450 into 4 ohms. It's probably around 200 at 8 ohms, though. However, if you stack both the 410 and 115 together, it'd be 4 ohms.

yeah thats what I planned to do...two 8 ohm cabs for a 4 ohm load...I just want to make sure it'll get the volume I need if I ever need to go unmic'd. If not, I will just try to save up for the 700 head.

I've done shows with 100 watts before, I wasn't the most heard guy there, but it worked. 200+ would definitely work.

With 450 watts you should be fine up until medium-sized gigs. Peavey makes great stuff for the price, and their gear is usually built like a tank. I say go for it.

I play through 2 4x12's with 225 watts. it's tube watts so it seems louder but it's still only 225 watts. Same amount of power and it drives all the speakers just fine. You should have no worries with 450watts.
