    Comments about Crate TX15 Taxi Series Portable Guitar Combo Amp:

    I bought this amp so I could play the 6 string electric bass through it. I saw that it had an 8" woofer so I went down to Sam Ash and listened to one and it sounded great with a bass! I bought one, and with the bass port+tweeter it really sounds great. I did some research and I found that Crate used to make a bass version of the Taxi and I was able to find specs on it; and this current Taxi is very similar to the discontinued Bass Bus Taxi. With my bass turned all the way up the Taxi maxes out on 4, very efficient. I also own and still use the Ion PA02; but the Taxi sounds better. Great bass, clear highs, loud, weighs about 20lbs. This is one great amp. The one thing I would add or change is the headphone out; I would rather have a line that does not cancel the speaker. The woofer will not break; it is clear all the way down to the low b with a ported cabinet. 15 watts is way more then you need to crank this speaker; it sounds more like 50 watts. Speaker and amp technology have come a long way. Also for apartment practice it is loud enough on 1! For performances on the blvd, coffeehouses and farmers markets, this amp is outstanding.

      Comments about Crate TX15 Taxi Series Portable Guitar Combo Amp:

      tHIS IS SO EASY TO USE A KID COULD GET WILD WITH THIS. I have had mine for 4 yrs now and the battery, (which is a internal installed rechargeable is REPLACEABLE) is still keeping a good 5+hrs charge. This is capable of being very very loud. Its not studio queit and may not be best for acoustic plug in guitars but grab a guitar some 9 volt batteries and your distortion and delay guitar pedalls and you can crank your as s off for hours on top of everest if you want. No power needed for hours operating at high volume. This is 15 watts but its more like 40 when full volume. Ion also makes the PA02/ PA03 units and I have one. I got this and that ion one on clearace. The ION is much much more durable and has better low end but if portability and loud is what you want this taxi is the deal for you. Keep a eye out the prices on these go up and down often. I paid [$] for the other so I have 2 batt operated amps PAs and springtime its p p p aaaarrrrty time with these battery amps, battery operated turntables, vinyl LPs (db drum and bass, techno/trance whatever)and metal guitar I am on it! wanna join us?! watch those prices - oh yea this BLOWS the doors off those little street battery amps by roland (2 spkrs cant hang w this taxi)and fender/marshall but if all you want is a cordless electric guitar amp those may be better esp with built in cmos efx.this rating system stinks its to much cr ap to answer
