Bass cab for Ampeg V2



Bass cab for Ampeg V2

Postby MeSoFuzzy » Thu Sep 05, 2013 6:43 pm

I'm going to be running a Wretch Machine and Goth T-Bird bass through this amp. My budget is in the $300 range, preferably lower. What would you suggest?

I'm leaning towards an Avatar 2x10 8ohm. They've got a scratch n dent for $250 shipped.

Your in Waldorf eh? Another DC local! :yay: Why not just head to Atomic Music in silver spring and see what they've got. I guarantee you can score something bigger and louder then a 2x10 for 300$ or less. Your probably going to want to look for something like a 2x15 if you want more low end. What is this wretch machine? I haven't seen one of those before.

Yeah, I live about 30mins. from DC.

I was thinking 2x10, because the amp is only 60 watts. Atomic music is a cool store. I guess I could just bring the amp with me and try cabs out. Last time I was there, they had a Fender reissue Sunn 2x15. I was dissapointed in it though, it lacked in deep bass for a 2x15. I'm not expecting stool softening lows from the V2, but want to make sure I get the most out of it.

Wretch Machine, bitch from hell! tube synth

Don't worry about the V2 being "only" 60 watts. :thumb:
Special low-frequency version.

Yea, I'll just try out a bunch of different cabs. I hate checking out basses and amps at stores. There's always jazz and funk guys going nuts with the slapping and tapping, while I'm just going duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh duhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh :lol:

Yeah, there's that, and it's also reallllly tough to crank something like a V2 up to the levels you'll be using outside the store.

The guys at Atomic Music are really cool. They let you crank it for a brief moment :thumb: Maybe I'll bring my Wretch instead of using a bass to try out cabs :animal:

You're gonna want the biggest cab you can afford. 2x10 isn't gonna cut it. Look for used 810's, 215's, etc. that amp is gonna be dirty no matter what (in a good way) so you're gonna need some speaker surface area to get you some volume.

I just got the V2 a couple days ago. It really makes the 2x15 sing! I'm going to pick up a 1x18 soon. Fucking killer amp!!!!!!! I've been running it at 4ohms. Excited to check it out at 2ohms.
