    behringers are built to break.

    go avatar. do a quick search on the forums here and im sure you could've figured that out yourself.

    just in case though............. Avatar.

    AVATAR! unless you're a masochist.......

    Let us know what you think when you get it!
  11. I love my BB410. It's a great cab.

    Sounds very nice paired with my 700RB-II.
  12. OK, I'll be the one dissenter.

    I have the BB410 and they sound great. I have pushed mine hard and they have not broken at all. And the rest of the band have said what a great punchy tone I'm getting. I had a bass player with a Fender/G-K head and cab come and ask to use my rig cos it sounded so much better than theirs!! I laughed but I let them.

    Interesting to see that they get good user reviews on Harmony-Central as well - the paper ones, not the aluminium. People say they sound harsh and that the alum separates from the rim of the cone. Happens to Hartke ones as well.

    I'm not a huge Avatar fan, but compared to behringer, it's a no brainer. Avatar.

    Although I never played an Avatar, I would make the assumption that they are far more reliable than anything Behringer ever made. :bag:
    Also, I played through the Behringer 4x10 in question and I hated the tone, the aluminum cones sounded too shiny for me. It just didn't have that warmth. I would go with the Avatar over Behringer any day.

    I have Behringer equipment. I don't want it anymore. It isn't loud enough for what I'm using it for, and I'm running 900 watts through the rig. I have the BA210 and BA115. Highly inefficient cabs. I'm going to sell these and get Avatar cabs.
