  1. Thank you for the replies! The articles you mentioned are very informative as well.
  2. After thinking about it, this sounds very interesting to me. I'd like to have my own system instead of relying on the PA and having a sterile system gives me complete control. But what exactly is a sterile system? I know a power amp doesn't color the sound, but a cab always does right?
  3. Well, I used to play this cab with a Peavey 6505+ 120w. It did a great job with a full band, but at home I could not get the volume down enough to not bother the neighbours. But I realize now you mention it, I have a 30w solid state combo that can play just fine at home, but can go extremely loud if necessary. Thank you for yout reply, it definitly gave me something to think about.
  4. Well, I had a Preavey 6505+ Amp with a 5150 4x12 cab. I sold the amp, but I couldn't sell the cab for a price I wanted. It has Sheffield speakers, which a lot of people don't like. So you're right my cab doesn't work right now. And I was curious if I could get it to work with my Pod. What I mean with bedroom volume is that I can just play comfortably at home and not disturb the cat, dog and girlfriend "too" much. I now play on a solid state behringer combo with 2 speakers and 30w. Which volume wise is very doable. But this was definitly NOT possible with my peavey 6505+. I just was not able to turn it down enough. Good point. Dragging a 4x12 around sucks and I can of course use the PA and monitors. If I play at home and adjust my tone to my cab and turn off cab simulation live, I have a different tone, which is going to happen in a different environment anyway but I'd like to avoid as much as possible. So that's probably the best choice. But I can't help myself and be curious as to what the cab sounds like to be honest. Thanks for the input Pianoguyy, much appreciated.
  5. Greetings, I'd like to play my POD HD500 through my 4x12 cab and I read that I need a power amp for that. The ideal situation for me would be to have the option to play at bed room volume for home use, but still be able to go loud enough for live situations. There are amps like the Peavey 6505 Mini Head that have wattage switches that could work for me, but I'd like to use the amp simulation of the Pod HD500. I have no experience with power amps, so I'm wondering what volume ranges a regular power amp has and if there are power amps that provide capabilities that are similar to those of a mini head.
