>>I really dislike the sound of the Contra and can't hear what a lot of players seem to hear in it. It is a very muddy, non-cutting cabinet, in my opinion. <<

I too am a little disapointed with the Contra after reading all the recommendations. In some settings with my Realist (and lovely 150 yr old German bass) it's OK, but sometimes it sounds so bad with the speaker facing the floor that I have to tip it up so the woofer faces forward. Granted it has more kick than the GK 150MB, but it's still not perfect by any means. I want the amp to stay neutral and maintain the natural sound of the instrument, like a mic on the bass going through a good PA (with an intelligent soundman...).

Where did you get the speaker box setup you referred to using with the Acoustic Image Clarus? I'd be interested in checking that combination out. But I'm not seeking the Walter Woods / Bose sound...
