    So what I gather...

    NO ONE has actually tried these babes yet, right?

    I am happy with my current bass rig(ABM 300 110 combo).

    I would however like to have have an extra cab for larger stages and to get more volume.

    I have sort of been waiting for behringer to come up with bass cabs because they are afordable.

    Their guitar cabs have great reputation on the net.

    Buy basses and lots of guns before it's too late! You have been warned.
    Let us know if you get this cab. I'm curious about Behringer simply because they are German engineered. German engineers have never created junk! German products rank amoung the worlds greatest (Beer, cars, guns etc.) I have heard the 300W bass head live and it performed wonderfully. I have heard the 4x12 guitar cab thrown by Mesa Boogie in a thrash band and it performed equally as well. Bass cab? Yea, I'm curious..... :hyper:
     
  5. Thats very true and a point people over look, behringer also have a good reputation for affordable studio gear too!

    How wrong can u go on a cab? I think many brand name over price them. After all its just building the cab you designed, no technology componets involved here. NO huge innovation either.

    You could probably build a pretty decent bass cab just following web cab pages.

    I might not use it as my main rig, I just need extravolume some times.

    I always thought that cab prices were way overpriced. Can cost you more than you bass!! wow.

    ok by me ... no offense intended to Behringer users .

    i just thought that was a pretty broad statement , ..."no innovations "

    Bergantino - Hartke - EA - Aguilar - Demeter - Wayne Jones - Schroeder
    and the list could go on ...
    yeah your right , no innovations to speak of ...
    :D

    The Behringer cabs will be perfect to use as a table to eat Chinese takeout on.

  12. mmmmm...Chinese takeout.

    I had a behringer head for awhile, it was actually pretty nice. Im sure the cabs will be par with the head.

    I do love chinese take out. 90% of the time the cab will be used as a table for beverages at home-studio. I am quite happy with my ashdown Abm 300 110. I will only need (want ¿?) the cab for large stages where I dont want to depend on the sound guy to get my stage sound.

    NO fear here, my sound is in my fingers I guess.

    As soon as any of you try one, let me know.
