hey guys im new here so don't flame me for a potentialy dumb question...

I recently bought a Gallien-Krueger Backline 110 combo Bass amp. As much as I like this amp, its to small to play for gigs and doesnt deliver much low end at all.

I was wondering if I could get a GK backline 115 cab(200W) and a GK Backline 600 head. The head puts out 300W at 4 ohms. Both cabs are 8 ohms which means combined it makes 4 so perfect.

The only question I have is can I hook up the head to the 70W+200W cabs.

if you still dont get it or hated the way i worded this...

CAB 1:

CAB 2: (ONLY THE BAB NOT THE HEAD)

Will it work?

If you're using two cabs, the max power you should put to them is twice the rating of the lowest rated cab.

I've loved GK stuff for years, but the Backline series really takes a back seat to the RB's. Used RB's aren't much more expensive.

so what can I do becuase im trying to

1. Use the combo amp I already have(and stick with GK)

2. Stay on a tight budget

3.get a cab that can handle more lows and is still loud

any suggestions?

...perhaps...and then sell your combo to offset a good chunk of the cost.

My bass player now uses a 1001RB 2x12 combo and it's too much to be perfectly honest. He was using a 2001RB and two 8x10 cabs, but he woke up one day and discovered 'reason'.

will a 2x10 amp of ANY kind be enough to put out a good sound.
(good highs AND lows)

More than you think. A well ported 2x10 will give as much bass response as many larger cabs. Also note that all the GK's use a DI out which (to be perfectly honest) is about the best way to run one into a PA. If you're playing a venue small enough to not need a PA, you won't need anything bigger than a 2x10 and 250-300 watts.
