I have two answers for you:

1. Try everything, trust your ears.

2. Since #1 sounds like a copout, in my studio, I have an Eden Navigator pre with a QSC power amp running a Bag End QX-10D. If I may quote Bass Player magazine: "I don't know if God plays bass, but if he does, he needs to try this cab."

Remember that mic techniques (and the preamps you use on those mics) will make more of a difference than one particular Ampeg combo over another. Generally I've found the DIs in combos to be problematic and will use a separate box for running the direct signal. Many times players will prefer just the direct channel in mixdown, unless they're going for something truly beefy and huge.

: Hi I am building a studio and i hope u could guide me on witch would be the best bass amp to cover all the possible ways i would like to record an electric bass. I was thinking of an Ampeg B-15R but since i will have standlone tube preams i thought I slould just get a solid-state amp like Ampeg B-100R. But then i notice that B-100R doesn't have a High Frequency Component like a tweeter or something so i thought i might a get an Ampeg BA115. I don't know if my dilemmas has a point, i could use some help, thank you
