    Default Stage volume box recommendation

    Hey guys: My bass "rig" is an Amp SRC-DI.

    What would you use for some stage volume? Random amp? Powered speaker? Just go through stage monitors?


    I don't need an amp for any kind of epic bass tone. This is on stage with two 50 watt guitar amps using 2x12 cabs

    Run through a stage monitor. Keep it simple. As long as it can handle it, that's all you really need.

    Or if you wanna block out the guitar amps, go direct and use IEMs.

    I'm going XLR out of my SCR-DI to EV ZLX12P with great success. No fart from the speaker even with the low B.

    If the band needs to hear it too, you'll need some power. Or one of the newer small, efficient bass combos- very light, and great tone, but $$$.

    Yah, to balance with two 50W guitar amps you'll need more than just the monitors. Bass frequencies need a fair amount of wattage.

    If you like the sound of the SCR-DI maybe add a poweramp and a 4x10", you need some speakers to be heard over 2x 50w guitar amps.
