Ampeg B25 or Sunn 200S
Wondering people's thought on these. Both are about $400. Looking for a good rock sound all clean band not too loud. Have a nice mark bass rig 500 watts for bigger things. Want a nice tube bass sound. Only have a 410 that is 4ohms if that matters...so thoughts...comments...

Which will be louder for clean tone?

The Ampeg B25B has to have an 8 or 16 ohm cabinet, so that will be an issue if you only have a 4 ohm cabinet. Also, the B25B is not as loud and clean as you probably want. I've never played a Sunn 200S, but it may be a tad cleaner/louder. It also has a 4 ohm tap.
See if you can play a 50 Watt amp in person, because you may not be able to get enough clean power out of 50 Watts to match drums and guitar amps.

The Sunn is definately the way to go, way louder and better sounding than the Ampeg IMO

I have owned both. I simply love the 200S cabinet. The B25B was smother sounding. Both were loud enough for my applications at the time.
The 200S cab is smaller, and I would have a hard time deciding.

ampeg is gone
Well someone else bought the ampeg. So Im playing the Sunn again. This one only has 1 small tube, a 12ax7? and two large 6550's. Any idea of dates? How else could I tell?
that's a very tough call for tone, but the 200s definitely has louder cleans.
