: I play bass in a carribbean band. I running a svt 3 Pro Ampeg Head 0ne 18" cabinet and one 4x10 cabinet. IN clubs this setup does the job, but I'm wondering if I'll need another 4x10 cabinet when playing outdoor gigs. Should I invest in another 4x10 cabinet? Pleas help !!
I don't think you need anything else! I played several outdoor gigs myself, and with a 350 watt head, a set of cabs consisting in a 1x15 and a 4x10, it was more than enough. Sure, before my first outdoor gig I was afraid my sound would be "gone with the wind", so to speak, but when the gig started, I realized that setup was enough. I even didn't need to crank the shit out of the amp, either. Anyway, I guess it depends of how loud your gig is. Mine was a rock band with distorted guitar and a drummer with a medium to heavy touch.
Hope this helped,
