Would anyone happen to know of a bigger (say 50 watts) active monitor that's cheap AND compact like the cube monitor? I mean, i love the cube monitor but i'm looking for something with a bit more wattage. And i want something that's kinda compact because i don't wanna lug a around a huge monitor. Thanks!

^ looks like an amp to me, meh .

ok the spammage shall stop now.


It is an amp. But it's a guitar/bass/keyboard/vocal/horn/trombone/drum/everything amp. And it doesn't color your sound at all

below 400 dollars. I just need like 50 watts, for guitar and for additional PA sometimes.

sorry , i was away. i cant answer ur question exactly, but ill at least try to bump u here...

ive got a roland AC-60. about $100 more than ur budget, but it's only about 12lbs and can be used with electrics, and has a ton of outputs, including a sub woffer out, for other applications.

im not sure who's got the best monitor in this price range tho. never used a small monitor like the cm30. i have seen a couple of one box pa systems. i think the cube has one too.

i do suggest u check used. maybe get something geared towards clean guitar, most of them have two inputs, and u can mic for additional pa applications.

the roland JC-120 is great for jazz and can be found used for about $400.

if ur dead set against using an acoustic / jazz or keyboard amp.

then check out a portable pa system.

Thanks. I was looking at the roland AC-60 btw, it looks good. I don't really care about gain because i got a few pedals (yesss... i still had money after they all got stolen, fortunately). I care more about transparency...

I've heard really good things of Carvin's active moniters, but I haven't tried them out and know nothing of the price.

How about 1 box pa systems?

Know any good LIGHT ones? 50-60 watts is fine, but not too heavy as i carry it by myself lol.

well if u go to the roland.com site and flip thru the fax section, ull see the ac-60 can be used for electrics, but ive never used pedals thru it. i would think for that, ud need a sub woofer to get a better heavy tone.

it have two inputs, one even excepts XLR mics, but whenever u insert 2 things into an amp, u cut the watts in half. soooo, yeah go for a PA system.
let me see.. all i know, is stay away from the fender passport system.

check out yamaha, maybe find a stagepass used...

and there's this nady, they have a smaller one i think. i think this is the one with the handle and wheels...
