PreAmp or EQ that is the question!

I've been playing upright for awhile on gigs, and using a K&K Bassmax with a their preamp & going through a Ampeg SVT 350 or 100 combo. On the big band stuff that requires big volume, I just don't get the sound I want. All I ask is to hear my defined notes, and sound somewhat like an upright. The way it goes now I have about an octave between my open A and A on the 2nd string. It stiffles any progression somewhere, so I have to constantly think about that instead of "Groovin". My loud requirement is outdoor on stage without going through a main board. That would be as bad a situation as I get into.
Any ideas will be tried. I don't have feedback because I plugged the F-holes with sponge, and put sponge between the tailpiece and top. I use Spirocore "Wien" gauge.

Thanks, Booger
