I just bought an amp and it's a Behringer head and a Hartke 15" speaker with a tweeter...I'm happy with it. It makes a pretty close Ampeg sound.

Only problem is then when I turn the 15" to about 150W the speaker rumbles at about 1/2" out or less...is that good? About how many inches can a 15" speaker rumble out from its normal position without hurting the amp?

Which 15 did you get?

The XL has 200 watts RMS handling, and the transporter has 150... push it past the RMS too much and it could mean bad things for your speaker.

I didn't get either...but my speaker handles 300W and my head goes up to 300W...so they're equal...

Ok, you got the paper coned vx series?

Well as long as its rated for 300 watts RMS you should be fine.

Sorry dude, that's a paper cone. If it was aluminum the speaker would look silver. Good thing is, the paper coned speaker you got can handle the 300 watts RMS. The aluminum cones don't handle it.

What it's saying is that hartke was made famous by the aluminum cone.

I quote from hartke's website...

It's not a bad thing at all. Because you got the paper cone, you'll be able to use your head at full volume if need be.

pretty nice...when i play mudvayne i can make it sound really low end then when i play songs with normal tuning it sounds great too!!

I'm really happy with it!

Still an Ampeg would be better but this is right about my price range and it sounds great...next i'll buy some 4x10's and then my setup will be complete!
