I would stay away from the Hartke 15's.Not only do they sound thin and brittle.
They blow pretty easy and don't really throw that much bass.If you are gonna go with a Hartke rig,I recommend going with a seperate 4X10/seperate amp combination.Having not heard the Carvin combo,I cannot comment.I will say however that you are probobly better off going with a SWR or EDEN combo.
Try them all out to see what you can afford and what one you like the sound of most.Just my $.02


I'm trying to choose between the Hartke kickback 15 or the Carvin PB200-15. What reputations do the two products have? They both can be purchased over the internet ( usually at a better price than in a store). I can't find any seller of peavey tnt on the net.( this was the third choice I came up with by reading the old post). So it's between the Hartke or Carvin. The bass does have active pickups. The amp is for practice (and maybe church or school jazzband down the road.)
: Thanks for your opinions.
