    How's this going to sound volume and tone wise?

    Behringer 3000T + 8 ohm Avatar B410 Pro

    roughly 200w into 8 ohms

    Here's the data on the amp: Behringer 3000T

    Here's the data on the cab: Avatar B410 Pro

    It is going to sound weak. :meh:
  3. In the new department, the Behringer head and Avatar cab can't be beat.

    Why an 8 ohm cab? Planning on getting a 1x15 or something?

    Used market, you could probably do better, but if used isn't a good option, that combo (pun unintended) can't be beat.

    You'd much better with a Hartke 3500 series head. Very versitile and much better quality than the Behringer, you can order it with an Avatar as a package too

    I already own the Behringer head. I know they're not the best, but I'm doing this thing in pieces and I couldn't afford much. Now I need to get a cabinet for it. I had thought about getting an Avatar B212 4 ohm cab (since I don't think I need more than one cab right now) but when I was searching for used Avatars I found the 8 ohm B410 Pro for about the same price as a new B212. What should I do? If only the 410 were 4 ohm! Which would sound better with this amp?
  6. Go for it. It will be fine.

    It'll sound OK.

    Got an Avatar and that head that I use sometimes. The Avatar will sound much better with Gary Avrett's improved crossover...there's a thread about it on TB. When I use the head, I usually bypass the preamp and run straight into the power amp section with the output of my Platinum Pro DI. Again, it'll sound OK. Not great, not crap...OK. I would take that cab and pick up a used GK head or something tho. A used 400RB would be about the same price, almost as much power and sound a lot better.

    The VU meter looks cool tho. :p
