Is this a good cabinet and would it with an acoustic b600 head?
Not played that one but I've yet to play a Behringer cab I liked in any way.
It seems that the BA810 is only capable of going down to 4 ohm and the Acoustic b600 is 600w at 2ohm.
Even with Behringer's enthusiastic wattage ratings you'd probably only be throwing 300w maximum at a cab which is 'supposed' to be able to handle 2000w. You certainly wouldn't be able to do the cab any harm and you would have a lot of speaker area. It would be a loud configuration. I can't believe it but I'd almost be willing to argue that the Behringer would be overkill.
If you wanted to get the full 600w out of your head and you were determined to go for Behringer gear you would be better off going for 2 BB410s. It would give you a wider range of options for transportation and afford you more power out of your head unit.
A lot of people who have used Behringer gear, myself included, do suggest that the aluminum coned cabs are probably the ones to be avoided.
I've played a gig through one, being retardedly loud and tuned to A, with a Sunn 1200S and an Ashdown ABM8x10 in parallel. Didn't die.
In a word? Crap.
One of my buddies plays one and it is horrible. It sounds like an 8" combo only louder.
I sit in with his band once in awhile and I always take an active bass. Even then I have never gotten a decent tone out of that junker.
The best thing about it is the handle and rollers - it least you can roll it off a cliff.
Did an outdoor concert last year and it had a Behringer head with 2 x 410 cabs. It was surprisingly flexible tonewise for me, and I definitely could feel my pants flapping. I wouldn't buy a Behringer because of resale value and scornability here on TB but I sure did have fun moving lots of air with that rig last year.
I've seen them sell for $150.00, I doubt they're very good.
Go carvin... get a br810... so loud and punchy... and not to mention cheap.. you can get them used from guitarcenter for around 450$.. i just bought one and im running my peavey tour 700 with it and its amazing
Maybe more information. Is it used and if so how much is it? If it's used and a year old or older, chances are it's not going to "go up in flames" and proven dependable. Do you already own the Acoustic head? If you are going to buy the head and cab new, why not go with one of the Acoustic cabs designed to work with the heads? If they're available both used, try them out and see if you like..... may surprise you..
Last I checked, Behringer isn't making 8x10's anymore.
They must be either old leftover stock, or used. They should be really cheap $$ then.
Bugera branded bass cabs aren't out yet.
