I am almost definitely set on getting a Behringer Ultrabass BX3000T (300W @ 8 ohms) amp. I am on a really tight budget and have been offered good prices on the Behringer as well as the following two speaker cabinets: Hartke VX115 with 15 speaker and horn. Mercury (dont know of a model number) with 15 Eminence speaker (no horn). I havent heard the combination of the Behringer with either of these cabs so the store I am looking at getting them from is ordering/holding the lot in for me (after having put down a deposit) but can send it all back and refund my deposit if I dont like the setup. Either of these speaker cabinets with the Behringer will fit within my budget and are the best deal I have been able to find on a new cabinet. I would have preferred the option of smaller speakers either a 2x or 4x but I was able to try the Mercury they had in store with an Ashton amp that was already plugged in and even without a horn I didnt feel there was a problem with the high end. Anyway, the reason for this post is to ask for opinions on these two possible amp/speaker combinations. Keep in mind my tight budget and that I really just want a rig that will allow me to jam in a situation involving a drummer Im not looking at getting into a serious band. Id also appreciate any info anyone has on the Mercury as Ive not been able to find out anything about this brand.
