If were going through foh I only use the one cab as an onstage monitor, I only really use the 2 cabs for the outdoor big gigs we do,
I'm going to try the nav out on Friday & I'll let you know how I get on with it,
Do you think the nav will sound close to the wt550 or 800 ?

Remember - the WT550 and 800 are also power-amps. All three share the same Parametric EQ feature, Tone Controls and a few other options. However, with the added features the Nav provides coupled with a quality power-amp and right cabinet or cabinet combination (lets call this set-up The Beast), I give the advantage to The Beast and I've used both the WT-550 and 800 heads. Both are great heads (no question).

It just wouldn't switch on Tim, there was no flicker or anything, I checked with a meter & there is power getting to the jumper leads inside, maybe the transformer has gone? I'm no tech so it's just a guess really,

Not following what you are referencing. What wouldn't switch on?

Are you sure you have the jumpers (inside the navigator) in the correct place to accept the voltage of your country. Is the voltage in UK 240v?

Well, if that is in fact the case, sounds like there are other issues with that particular Nav . That's too bad because the Navigator is an amazing pre-amp.

Sounds like a plan. You won't regret it.

I prefer the Euphonic Audio Doubler with the Wizzy 12 M-Line. For coffee shops, I bring the Doubler with a Wizzy 10 just in case it's needed (but this is with DB).

Even though the EA Doubler is designed to be for folks who play EB and DB, the EA Doubler with Wizzy does very well with my 5-string EB on Funk and Latin Jazz.

I normally play a Eden WT800C with a Bergantino 410. My secondary setup is a Eden WP100 hooked up to a Carvin 1000 watt power amp, played through an Epifani UL410

I have the navigator and a wt800c. In my opinion, the navigator sounds better and has more features. You just need a power amp, whereas the Wt800 is more convenient. Both sound good, but the navigator sounds better.

Since I first posted on here my rig has changed a little. I'm still using the black tiger elite as main bass, but my main amp is the SWR SM900 and I'm using some Bag End cabs- two D10BX-D cabs and a powered S18E-D with the low frequency integrator. An amazing set up for me, and I can split the rig for different sized shows. I get a clear, uncoloured sound with a stage shaking rumble when I use the full rig!

That sounds awesome. I can imagine the growl and snap it brings.
