Yeah, I've reached that stage that all bassists get to eventually.

I got tired of being DI'd into the PA whenever I play, so I'm considering getting a nice head/cab setup to push my MIA J-bass through.

Looks like this:

Ampeg B2-RE Bass Head - 250W @ 8Ohm, 450 @ 4Ohm
Warwick WCA411PRO (4Ohm) - 4 x 10" + H, 600W.

I never play distorted, but I sometimes use a tube preamp pedal when I jam at mates' places, and I use a multi-effects/preamp/DI combination box when I gig.

I normally play in small/medium rooms (biggest room I played in was a smallish auditorium - no idea about the measurements).

Whatever I buy is better than the crappy 60w Ibanez practice amp I use at the moment. What do you guys think?

(I'm putting off buying a Epiphone Les Paul Custom to do this!)

Hard to go wrong with an Ampeg. Sure it isn't an SVT but you won't need to hire two burly giants to lug it around for you either.
Never seen a Warwick cab but it looks nice and they do tend to make nice stuff.

Though I'm partial to Eden's Ampeg's are usually pretty safe bets for good gigging amps. No experience with Warwick cabs though... I've actually never tried a bass cab besides my eden
