    Hey all! im new hear and have thinked about some questions for a time now.. and readed some on the forum..
    so what i wonder is:

    Iam planing to buy the Behringer BX3000T amp on 300watts into 4Ohms, and the new Behringer BA410 cab on 1000watts.
    and i wonder, will this hold good with loud overdrive playing..or will it just crank down and die before the first song is over? its aluminium cons on the 4x10..but i dont know if it will do any better then paper with overdrive? and agressiv playing..

    so what do you all think? love to have some tips :)

    im playing in a Thrash/death metal band right now so i really need somethin that wont die or get broken.. im using the BOSS overdrive basspedal(the yellow one) for the overdrive.. its really good, but still will the stack do the jobb at high volumes?

    hope anyone got any sence out of this :) thank you for any answers :) bye!

    Try before you buy...

    I recently played through an aluminum coned Behringer 4x10 and didn't like it a bit. I have owned a Hartke 4.5XL with aluminum cones too and grew tired of the tinny sound.

    I don't know of any guitar speakers that have aluminum cones...which would point me to look at paper cone drivers for overdriven bass too...

    I don't know how the stores are in Sweden, but here in the US the larger stores will let you try out gear for between 15 and 30 days (some mail order dealers let you use it for 45 days) to make sure that it's right for your needs, and return it for a full refund if it isn't.

    Would the store let you buy it, use it and return it if you don't like it? That's really the only way to know.

    BTW, I curious...how much do BX3000T cost in Sweden? A price in Krona or Euros is OK, I can convert :D
