I have a line on a B52 4x12 steath cab with 100w b52 speakers and a Peavy transtube supreme head for $150. It would be replacing a Peavy programax 10 2x12 combo amp. Does anyone have experience with either of these and know if its a wise choice. Play alot of stoner/doom metal and want more low end. I've found mixed reviews and opinions on the subject of stacks vs. combos and though I'd get some input form players. I don't gig but do play with a drummer so volume is necessary. thanks for the input!

Whats the most money you could put into an amp? and where are you located so we can look around for deals.

Neither of those options is going to give you much low end. The 4x12 is probably more likely to give you *something* than the open-back combo.But it's not a great place to put your money, given what you're trying to accomplish..

I'm in NW ohio, not really looking to put money into a new amp, I just know I can sell the combo easily for the cash to buy the stack and just curious if it would be a worthwhile upgrade from what I am currently using. If I'm going to spend more than what I can get from the combo I'll just save up for a tubed setup.

Honestly, I think the only upgrade would be that you may get a bit more money out of the half stack than the combo, so don't guess would have anything to lose.
