Whats your budget?

Any decent PA speaker will likely do you better than the majority of those marketed as FRFR cabs.

Nothing specific - will pay what is required to get it right. Don't want to end up buying multiple times and learning the hard/expensive way

Not all PA Speaker go low enough Hz do they?

Big Baby 2 goes down to 33 Hz, is cheaper, and 26lbs in weight, but I guess then you would have a poweramp to find (and carry separate)

And for me that sort of defeats the purpose - if it's separate then I'd have to be careful over poweranp choice and all that.. and it's more to lug around and....

The FR800 is an active version of the BB2. The usable frequency range is the same for both - the difference in the specs is that for the FR800 we've quoted frequency response within 3dB limits, not usable frequency range (which is wider).

Thus my previous "[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif] [/font][/color][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Fr800 goes to 42 Hz (-3db)." :) Although my low B fundamental is about 32 Hz.. [/font][/color]

True - but it also goes lower... but with more than a -3dB roll off. I'm not sure you want to be going as low as 42 Hz.. your sound is going to be pretty swampy on stage.

You'll get no argument from me on that.... I have a thumpinator :)

Interesting that the roll off is apparently at 30hz on the thumpinator - still lower than most bass cabs can reliably reproduce at any noticeable volume. It will get the fundamental of a B string through - which to be honest, is probably not wanted on most stages anyway. Keep the sub frequencies for the PA - and even then, a lot of smaller venues won't thank for you subs that low. In fact, you got to be running some pretty decent subs to get anywhere near 30hz at -3db at any decent SPL anyway.

The real chest thumping stuff is circa 65Hz - the resonant frequency of your rib cage... so you know where to peak your kick drum's eq...
