    Both have the same price. I plan to use it to practice with my band.

    Which is best?
    If you have to chose what will you prefere? sound quality or power?

    (Please answer, I have 3 days to take a desition)

    from what i've heard, the ampegs are modestly rated. i love the hartke paper-coned speakers' tone but i would say go with the ampeg. the 40 watt difference should not that noticeable volume wise... both are loud thoguh for moderately powered combos. the 15 in the hartke might handle the lowend a little better (i believe there is a 12 in the ampeg). let us know what you decide on :)
  3. I have the B50R. It goes plenty far for practicing. It has a 12". It's the right size and weight for practice. Has a line out, too. Best $211 I ever spent. :)
