Warwick xtreme 5.1 Bass head

Hey guys, i've had this bass head along with a warwick 1x15 cab and a warwick 2x10 cab i believe. I dont know the specifics on this gear at all, i'm wondering if it's of any quality? Is this a rig that is good for metal bass (with a distortion pedal) or is this on the cheaper line of things? I can't find barely any information on it on the web. any info would help, thanks!

I don't remember playing that specific amp, but Warwick amps were actually pretty good. Nothing special, but still good. Your typical, modern solid state bass amp. You already have the amp, have you tried playing through it much?

Need help with setting up a trem?

Looked it up and at 500 watts its a pretty good size to keep you going.
The fetures are pretty good so you should be able to get some decent tones out of it for metal or anything.

I always like using a Sansamp BDDI (or other related Sansamp) to get better metal voicing out of any rig. I've used quite a few different setups over the years and the Sansamp always helped. Your rig should be fine in terms of volume and general quality.
