i need something smaller and lighter than my carvin 100 watt combo - something that will fit in a small area and sound good at very low volume but okay when playing at home with a single guitar player. more interested in good bottom end tone (again, when quiet) than punch, although both would be nice, and mp3 mix in would be a plus.

suggestions?

Um, a Peavey "Vyper 15". (modeling amp); http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/peavey-vypyr-15-15w-1x8-guitar-combo-amp/482908000001000 or possibly a Peavey "Ecoustic 208"; http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/peavey-ecoustic-e208-30w-2x8-acoustic-combo-amp

(The small Vyper I have and like). The 208 looks great on paper, and I like the idea of spring reverb, and a second clean channel for vocals. I'll probably grab the Ecoustic next time I hit a sale @ Musicians Friend. Black Friday will be upon us before you know it.

Are you looking for a bass amp, 'cause I just assumed guitar amp due to your "acoustic goddess" billing.....

If this was posted on the Bass Guitar section, then OP is obviously looking for a bass amp.

budget - under $200. less is good since it's only for the house.

If you can find a used Gallien Krueger MB112 combo or stretch the budget a wee bit you're set.

I used to have the head version of the MB112 and 115 combos. The MB200. It was a great head, lots of clean headroom and a nice crisp and clear tone. The only reason I moved mine on was because I was going through a bit of an effects stage and the GK didn't have an effects loop. They're excellent, excellent value for money. I'd buy another if I was in market.

For basement practice, church, and low volumes, the Fender Bassman 25 (older tilt cab) sounds great. I've had mine for years and you can find them on e-bay cheap. Don't be fooled by the 10 inch speaker, it handles my 5 string basses just fine. I've used in on stage for 2000 people and just line out into the PA.

I'd go for an EBS Classic Session 60, great sounding amp and has plenty of features that would help practise loads

Pretty even across all levels. I haven't tried it with a 12 inch speaker but I'm pretty confident that it will hold up well.

+1 I had the MB200, but it sounds like your existing amp is too bulky, as well as being in the middle ground, only able to keep up at say little acoustic gigs. You might consider selling it, and using the proceeds to help fund say a MB200 or something and a 4ohm small cab that would bring you to 200 watts so you could then turn down just as easy as you could turn up and have a very small space taken up
