Hey, does anyone know a good bass cab to go with this head?
(Peavey Tour 450, linked below)
http://bass-guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Peavey-Tour-450-Bass-Head-?sku=480314

Im trying to spend a total of $700 on this, so i prefer a cab that i could buy for around $300 used. Please post any suggestions you can.

Thanks in advance.

Apparently, not an Ashdown MAG410T.

You have asked similar questions, so to aid clarification, can I ask what tone you're looking for / what styles you play?

And since it was raised before, wether you want 4 or 8 ohms?

check the used market: craigslist, ebay, buy and sell, etc etc...

i extremely doubt youre going to get a new *good* cab for anywhere close to $300
My Rig:
Yamaha RBX 375 bass
Peavey Millenium BXP bass (won at Summer Slaughter 2010, signed by all the bands)
Eden Nemesis NC410 320w combo amp

I'm looking to play metalcore/Hardcore/Thrash
But from what i'v heard from professionals, is that the type of amp you get really has nothing to do with whatever style you play, its about how you EQ it and set up your sound.

Btw, i also found these at good prices and seem pretty decent. Any opinions on these?

I'm only looking to play medium/small gigs, so i really don't need anything top of the line, just something good that will last for the price.

But craigslist and ebay are where i intend to look after i decide

Cant say i've played either, but I know Hartke has a great reputation.

why?

Hartke's "big thing" is its use of aluminium speaker cones, which, as far as Ive heard, not having played through them, yield a very fast response. This is typically associated with genres other than hardcore. That said, the Soil bassist (Tim King?) features in their adverts, and he's no jazz-fusion cat. The eternal try-before-you-buy comes into effect.

I'm not convinced by that. Of course the amp is disassociated from the genre, but some amps are still better than others for achieving the stereotypical tone of a certain genre. However, you have the advantage that a hardcore tone is relatively easy to create, hence more amps will give a satisfactory tone.

you would be better off getting that amp with one of their VX series cabs. they are designed for a more rock friendly response than the XL series stuff which as mentioned above is used more in jazz fusion and other super clean and precise genres. I have the hartke LH500 head with the VX410 cab and it does punk, rock, metal, prog and pop tones with ease. The cab adds that bit of warmth that's needed to create the power you need in hardcore bass

very helpful response, thanks

I Also found this amp head that seems very convincing. The only problem is , that it doesn't say the ohms tht 550W will run in. If anyone else knows about this head, can u provide info? Thanks,
Noreee

Assuming that you mean the LH500, the Specs read 250-299 into 8 Ohms. Therefore, 500 into 4.

Even if its not that head, Id love for you to show me an amp for $350 that produces 550W into 8Ohms. RMS.
Attendez la creme!

im gonna end up paying more. and no its a bugera BVP 5500

Normally, 550W would be RMS into 8Ohms. However, Bugera is a division of Behringer, who are well known for quoting peak rather than RMS. I would check their website to be extra certain.

That's peak power, at 4 ohms.

300W peak at 8ohms, according to the user manual.
