    I've been happy with my Bassbreaker 007 combo with a Bassbreaker 112 extension cab. Looking at the BB15 head, too.

    I think Clarkj734 is one of us guys who know that we need 30-40 watts . And the 18/30 looks nice, but there's that extra 12 there, so extra weight and bulk

    As a 2x12, the 18/30 is too much for me to hump around these days. As a 1x12, or better still as a head, it would be ideal.

    Congrats. I really like my BB45 head. I agree with those that think a BB45 1x12 combo would be a good idea.

    I think 30 - 40 watts is about perfect for versatility. Enough clean headroom to comfortably hang with most drummers, but also easy enough to "tame" for recording, home use and jam situations.

    And USUALLY a mangeable grab and go weight and size.

    Love my 18/30. Not nearly as heavy as my '68 Twin !

    I played them both side by side and played several 18/30s. As much as I desperately wanted to love the 18/30, it was just okay. Not enough fine tuning adjustment in the controls and the 18-watt side was still WAY too loud before getting any breakup. It might have been better as a 1x12 or 2x10. The BB45, on the other hand, was fantastic. Loved it at any volume. I wish it was a 1x12, too. But I really recommend it more.

    How about a new baffle board with a single speaker? aprox. 5kg off.
    maybe even a 15"
