Ampeg website issues? (need info on B series head)

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by WovenGraphite, Feb 3, 2005.


  1. I am looking for specs on the B series head. The Ampeg website seems to have some trouble, at least in this area (sign of new products?).
    They list only the B4-R and the B5-R.
    The B4-R seems to have the specs of the B2-R!
    The B5-R shows the rocket bass!

    Anyway, I am looking for the power ratings (4 and 8 ohms) of the B heads. Has anyone that info... whatever product it may be. Thanks!

    :hyper:

    PS: no, no GASing... why?

    B2R:
    200Watts @ 8ohms
    350Watts @ 4ohms
    Doesnt do 2ohms.... trust me, I've tried it. And to be honest... those 350Watts arent too loud.

    B4R:
    Stereo
    200Watts per side @ 8ohms
    340Watts per side @ 4ohms
    500Watts per side @ 2ohms

    Mono

    680Watts @ 8ohms
    1000Watts @ 4ohms

    B5R: It's basically just like having half of the B4R.
    200Watts per side @ 8ohms
    340Watts per side @ 4ohms
    500Watts per side @ 2ohms

    Those new B-series heads look, to me, like a step in the wrong direction for Ampeg. If they wanna make something more powerful, they should take a look at the 4Pro... not a B2R.

    The B1RE looks sadly underpowered for a hefty price... and the B500DR is not-very-useful technology for friggon $1000. Screw that.
