    I've been looking into buying on of these amps for a while now but they are hard to find. I found one on ebay and its brand new. I wanted to know what the positives and negitives are of the amp if anyone has one and knows. Which would you prefer the B-2 or B328 (2 / 8 vs. 1 / 15). also whats a good price for this amp. thanks

    I played through a B328 once and while it got a good variety of sounds and had a nice top end, it had pretty wimpy lows and started crapping out when turned up past low volume. 150 watts into 2-8" speakers is not the best recipe for beaucoup bass. Ampeg also made a biamped B3 combo with a 15 and an 8 that has a lot more booty but is significantly larger. They also made a B2 combo with 4-8s.

    The B2 combo puts out 200 watts into its 8 ohm 15 and 350 into 4 ohms. The internal speaker is good for old-school tone but not the best for more modern sounds. You might be better off getting a B2R head (I got one new for $489) and separate speakers for more versatility. I've seen used B2R's for about $400- www.bassnw.com often has very good prices on factory-refurbished units--and the B2 15" combo for about $800 new, $500 used
