    I finally upgraded my sound system. I had 4x12's before, but they weren't a good fit in the man cave. I had 3 of them. I literally gave them away.

    The small practice amps don't have enough low end ... and the speakers rumble with the low end crunch.

    I kept the Acoustic head but had no speakers to go with it. I found a great deal on Reverb for a Blackstar 212 speaker cabinet. It's perfect for what I need. The Acoustic head works great with pedals. I'm not a fan of the modeling amps ... too many flashing lights get me dizzy and confuseded.

    I keep it simple. This is perfect for my needs.

    Congrats!,, that's the 50 watt tube head right?..
    I had one that sounded great with a 4x12 Peavy cab
    But like you, had to give everything away when I hit the road and needed some quick cash.. That should be just the right size for a man cave... You can feel it but the neighbors won't,,, maybe..

    Nice, now you need to get your wife and daughters out of the house for awhile so you can rip it up.

    Played it a bit last night. No rumbling of the speakers with the low end growl.

    Perfect set up for me. The 4x12's are cool looking, but man, no room.
