    i think the general consensus is that carvins amps are a good deal for the money, but there is better stuff out there. if 400 bucks is your price range i would suggest you look into something used, hopefully an ampeg B50R or B100R. i love carvins heads, i play through an RC210 combo (R600 series 2 head) but their speakers leave something to be desired. the speakers are known for not being very efficient, and also not handling the low frequencies well. if its for a 4 string bass, and isnt going to be used in a band with drums/guitars i think it would do ok. one of the small ampeg combos would be better (even though the wattage is less) i am a big fan of the ampeg B100R with the 15 inch speaker in it. great sound, and pretty loud too.
