Bi-amping/dual amping

Just plugged this in at home for the first time this evening. 

Ashdown ABM500 through a pair of Aguilar DB112 cabs for the lows and a Laney Vc100 all valve head through a Laney IRT212 cab for the highs. 

You might be surprised to hear that it's quite loud. 😐

Running a dual amp rig through one cab at the moment: Ampeg B410hlf internally split into a sealed 2x10 with horn and a ported 2x10 at the bottom. Ampeg SVP PRO goes to the ‘low’ 2x10 and the other channel is driven by my B3n (after being split on my pedal board using a Behringer He’ll babe wah) into the 2nd channel of the Laney PA amp. 

Achieving dual amping with much less lifting!!

Thought I'd revive this thread with a very short clip of this rig in action. Terrible picture quality I'm afraid so I apologise for that but hopefully still worth a quick listen (through headphones) if anyone is interested.

This is cool. I use  a boss tuner and an Ls-2. No real issues with them ut this could save some space on the board lol

I sometimes use the following set up for big gigs when I need everything I can muster!

Markbass LM2 into a Schroeder 1210 (4ohm).

Another Markbass LM3 into an Aguilar GS410 (also 4ohm). 

Using any pedal with two outputs to split the signal (i think it was a chorus pedal switched off at the time). 

Sounds massive and very satisfying!

      I'm a recent convert to the bass and to Basschat, which I'm loving (including the podcast and the Midlands Bass Bash).  I'm learning on a Stingray 34 and using a Fender Rumble 15 practice combo (and a Vox headphone amp for when my partner wants to sleep!).  But I'm wondering where to go next with amplification.  I'm not gigging, but I'd love to.  I'm a bit bored with the Rumble sound, though I know it's great for the money and size).  Any ideas where I should go next?  Should I get a good middleweight combo, or go head and cab, or preamp and DI? Or should I just tuck my horns in and wait till a) I'm more proficient; and b) I'm playing in public?
      Or is this just a case of beginner's GAS?
      Help!

      Hey everyone 
      Bought a Spector Performer 4 deluxe today.
      Its a great bass but obv its doesnt have the edge or tone I get from My Legend 5 Classic.
      I had myself wondering....what about a preamp instead of basically spend twice as much as the bass to install active pick ups?
      It a was great price and good bass for the money its just it could do with a little more ommph to match its bigger brother!
      Thanks

      Hi folks,
      My local rehearsal rooms have been rather forward-thinking and supplied Ampeg SVT3 Pro heads with a Ampeg 2x10 or 4×10 Classic cabs in all the rooms. Beats the usual Ashdowns that's for sure, not that they're too bad.
      Played the 4x10 rig earlier tonight. What a fantastic rig - would buy the same rig in an instant if I could afford it. Not only is there more than enough heft, I can hear so much more out of my 5-string active bass (sandberg) than I've previously experienced. It's all there, glassy highs, punchy mids and LF rumble - all very adjustable and it sat nicely with the band mix.
      I can now see why they're held in such high regard. Just saying - bit of a revelation really. 
      Anyone else heard sounds from their bass through someone else's rig that they can't get from their own?
      Steve
