    Don't bother with the Behringers. Go with Avatar. Tried & true.

    Yorkville Sound makes good, high quality cabinets at good prices. They have 15s as well as 2X10s and others. Give them a try if you can. Great warranty too.
     
  5. most likely much more clear, and much louder than any behringer can get. avatarspeakers.com

    Yorkville makes excellent stuff as well, but not as close to behringer pricewise as avatar.

    Don't count out the Behringer cabs just because they are Behringers. I have the BA115 and I can tell you it matches up well with my two Avatar cabs(Delta 210, SB112) very well. The aluminum cone gives the 15 a quick and bright response. It really is not muddy but it gives a solid bottom and can handle any low B.

    Avatar is another solid choice. If you can get somewhere and try out some cabs then do it. You also may be able to find some nice used cabs.

    I'm NOT a huge Avatar fan like many are on this site, but I'd CERTAINLY buy Avatar cabs over Behringers.

    robear, i certinly wont count out the behringers, in fact, i am an avid supporter of the brand. although i looked at the avatars, i didn't take to theyre liking...so im going with the 1001 rb II into a behringer bb210 and bb115...and thats final i think. to bad i could have a real high wattage behringer head, i liek theyre tone lots....

    If you like the tone then get it. Everyone should get what works for them and what they can afford!!!!!!!!

    Let me know how the cabs work if you get them. I have not tried the paper ones yet. :smug: :bassist:

    well robear, i already oen the bb 210 im wating on cash for the bb115 i liek the tone on the paper cones. behringer's price tag suits me better anyway. with all the other stuff my band needs, my funds are tighter than usual.

    My BX3000T has been working since 11/03.

    My EP1500 has been running since 7/04.

    My bass V-amp has been running since 1/04.

    And my cab has performed flawlessly since purchasing it this past April. If you take care of your gear it will last. If you have to have your volume past 7 to be heard then either your setting is too loud or you need more power. I have learned the more power the better. Most amps are not comfortable running at 11 for three hours and will eventually break down if it continues.
