    Looking at getting a powerful amp before jumping back into the mix, and I came across a used behringer BX 4210A for about 225$.

    The 450w, 2x10's, and tweeter caught my eye but the reviews say that the speakers are prone to blow and thats got me nervous. Something to do with cross wiring. Its been suggesed in reviews (and I've already been wanting a similar rig) to buy a 1x15 cab to go along with it and that will prevent speaker damage.


    So my question to the gurus is

    At the price is the amp truly worth it?

    IMHO and IME no amp/cab with the behringer name plate is worth the price.

    After more searching I came up with a top 3. All used and in the same price range.

    Behringer BX4210A - 225$ - 450w, 2x10, combo

    Eden D210T - 200$ - 250W, 2x10, combo

    Acoustic B200 - 180$ - 200w, 1x15, combo


    I've also noticed some harke and gk combos that were around 120 -150w with a 1x15 cab that I'm considering. But I want some solid feedback before making a final decision. Really wanting a 2x10. The acoustic is only a contender because I used to own a B100.

    Any and all feedback is apreciated

    I think that eden is actually just the cab? no amp.

    Personally I would check out those GK combo's.

    Behringer = Total crap!!
     
  7. Behringer has serious QC issues. After rolling the dice on many of their products over the years (who can resist at those prices?), I have found that if you get something that was made on a good day, it's rock solid and lasts forever. If you get something made on a bad day, you will know very shortly.

    If it's used, has been put to the test and survived, that is a good sign.

    Stay away from Berhinger. They're noisy, sound bad, unreliable, noisy, oh, and unreliable.

    I think you're right on the Eden.


    New list. I tend to be antsy when shopping for gear since its rare I have the scratch to buy strings let alone large purchses so please be forgiving. All advice is appreciated greatly.


    Peavey TNT 115s - 1x15 - 150 w
    Fender BXR 200 - 1x15 - 200w
    Ashtown EB12 - 1x12 - 180w
    Kustom KB200 - 1x15 - 200w
    Line 6 LD175 - 1x15 - 175w

    All apear to be in my price range. What ever I get is just temporary until I can afford something better down the line and when I better understand amps in general, but it still needs to hold up in the mix.

    I know wattage is related to output, but not the whole source so thats why I'm trying to be diverse. The tone I'm aiming for is Dirty, punchy, and angry.

    again thank you for the advice.

    Went with the Peavey TNT 115S. Total after taxes and shipping 195$. Should be here in the next few days. Biggest worry is that its been referred to as a practice amp in some reviews.

    Thanks for all the help guys.

    Peavey make good amps. It should sound quite handsome. Curious though that the first sentence of this thread was 'Looking at getting a powerful amp before jumping back into the mix'.

    I hope the Peavey will be powerful enough to meet your objective.

    Sorry for reviving an old thread but somrthing needs to be said about all the negative feedback on the behringer amp... I am the proud owner of the Bx4210a combo and it is the second best amp iv ever used.. I play professionally every single weekend for 4 hours each friday and saturday night and the behringer has never let me down in over 2 years.. the range of tone is incredible in that my effects pedal stays at home since iv owned the amp. I play all rock/funk/blues/pop and every sound i need is right there with the press of a button or touch of a dial.. we use a 3000w foh system with a 1200w active subwoofer and i dont need to d.i my bass at all.. with my volume set to approx "3" and gain even lower it keeps up and im sometimes asked by the guitarist to turn down a tad. i cant stand people commenting on a product they have never tested.. i can say i have put more wear on this amp than probably anyone... its fantastic value for money.. a lot of people tend to forget no matter how good an amp "should" sound... its going to be rubbish if you are using a poopie guitar with poopie pickups... fantastic product.. keep it up Behringer.
    Cheers.
