I'm looking at new heads, and seem to be zeroing in on the Ampeg B2R. I like the idea of getting Ampeg because of my proximity to their home base (i.e. no need to ship it for warranty repairs). I've done searches and found a lot of complaints about the volume. Whatever I get will be upgrading from a Crate 220. Its rated at 150 watts into 8 ohms, which is what I run it into (Avatar 2x12). I've never needed to turn it up past 6 in any situation, including playing live with a death metal outfit. So I'm wondering if these volume complaints are real, or just coming from people used to using 600 watt-plus setups.
