I just bought a Nemesis NC-210P (combo). [You should be able to get them for under $600--I got a floor/blemished demo for $525.
It weights 47 lbs., is only 23.75"W x 16.25"H x 16.25"D (so it fits in the back seat of my Civic). It is build by Eden and it is awesome.
It puts out 200W RMS, and has:
2 10s and a horn
a compressor
an effects loop
an enhance control
3 band tone controls, plus one narrow-Q semi-parametric control that has a selectable range of from 40Hz to 10KHz
a headphone output
tuner output
a DI.
Frequency response is rated at 35 Hz - 15 kHz and it kicks. [I just got a StingRay 5 and its B string through this thing is very solid, powerful, and clean to growlly depending on the enhance control setting.]
I have not gigged with it yet, but it should handle up to medium sized venues [and you can always use the DI to PA when it isn't loud enough on it own].

I have talked to a few other bassists who used to pack around killer stacks and when they heard this thing, they "traded down".
Save your back and some bucks!

Caveat: The grill on mine was not painted very thoroughly (hence the lower price) and one side of the handle on the top came loose. [Apparently, they fastened one side of the handle with a wood screw (the side that came loose) and the other side with a machine threaded screw into a metal insert.] I just took the top handle off. It has two side handles which are very sturdy.

Highly recommended!
