    I got a real good deal on a WT800, so I wonder how big is the difference between the old and the new WT800?
    I can get a new WT800 for half the price of a WT800B

    The primary difference is that the WT800(b) can run bridged into a 4ohm load (1100 watts), whereas the 800 cannot. If you use two 4ohm cabs or one large 8ohm cab, the heads will perform identically. If you have one large 4ohm cab, you can't use the original 800 (at least not generating full power in bridge mode) but the 800(b) will run safely at a somewhat increased power level.

    The new WT800B has improved cooling and an improved power section and now drives down to 2 ohms per channel (550W), and 1100W bridged into 4 ohms. Performance is slightly improved at 440W x 2 into 4 ohms or 880W into 8 ohms bridged. As KJung already mentioned, the biggest gain is the ability to bridge into 4 ohms.
