Looking for any advice or opinion whatsoever on a decent bass combo for practice at home and the occasional al fresco gig. I did buy a Harley Benton HBW80 from Thomann, but learned from that that it is really important to see the letters RMS after a power rating, and, given that it was as cheap as chips, you get what you pay for sometimes, and no more!
It actually sounds reasonable, but the specification plate on the back says output 20W RMS, which is not enough for my purposes. Maximum SPL is only 110db at 1 metre.
I have been looking at Behringers, the 180w and 300w, but some say they are unreliable, and I reckon the rating is not RMS. I've also considered the Warwick BC80 and the Hartke A100. Does anyone have any experience of any of these, or a recommendation for something else? Currently I am using an old Trace Elliot 200w head and a dying Celestion Sidewinder Cab.
Forgot to mention, I will be using it with my Mustang 3 stacked on top, so it has to have the control panel on the front of the cabinet.
