hey, i run a rig that includes 2 2x12 avatar cabinets and 2 4x10 ran thru a fender bassman 300 head. im in a band that is only bass, drums, and vox so naturally im going to have a big rig. the problem i'm having is that my low, palm-muted boom's from my B string seem to overpower the 2x12s. as a solution i was considering running my bass thru a 2nd amp into one or two 1x18 cabs. will two 1x18s give me that groung-shaking bass you can feel in your chest? or is there something i can do with my current rig(keep im mind i have an extra ampeg amp)?


thanks

so you have this rig:

Fender Bassman 300 Head into
2 2x12
2 4x10

Maybe you should get a 2x15? I assume it'd be a bit more portable than 2 18's, and still provide low end. Then again, 18's will give you more low end.


Can you provide a link to your band's Myspace or something? It sounds very intriguing

Jesus christ that's huge! Imagine all the chicks you could attract with that!


I'm of course referring to the vibration factor.

I dig your band man, had you guys as a friend for a while.

Sounds like biamping would be a perfect solution for you.

I suggest something like this


                     Bass > Morley A/B Box
                       /             \
               Channel A         Channel B
                    /                    \
                 Effects              Clean into an amp with a 215 or 218 or whatever 
                  /
         One amp w/ your 410s
haha

The important thing when looking for 15's, 18's and 21's are their frequency handling. The larger the speaker, the lower the frequency it can handle. That 21' has a low frequency of 22Hz, an Ampeg 18' has a low frequency response of 28Hz, and an Ampeg has a low frequency response of 33Hz. A low B is 30Hz.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

I'm not too into grindcore, but you guys sound pretty good - you got some skills there man. Your vocalist has some pretty sweet pig squeals haha.


And Metaluptheass' idea is pretty good.

im having a hard time finding a 1x18 for a decent price, how well do you expect a 2x15 to handle a low B at very high volumes?

^Hartke has a cheap ($400-$500) 18', and Ampeg has a good 18 that's about $600-$700. I don't know how much cheaper you expect them to get.

Keep in mind, those are 4 Ohm cabs.
