    I'd take used Peavey over Behringer anything. The TKO's aren't bad-sounding, and there isn't much difference dB-wise from 80 watts to 120, and Peavey gear is usually MUCH more solid than anything that ever bore the Behringer label. I wouldn't trust the Behringer on a gig, but I put an old Peavey TNT 130 through a lot of abuse as a kid many moons ago, and it was pretty much indestructable.

    I haven't played through any Behringer combos, they may well not sound too bad, but used Peavey gear is hard to beat on a budget, their gear is just solid, you can depend on it to be there when you flip the "on" switch.

    I've not played a Peavey in a long time but have 2 Behringer combos, the 900 and 1800 units. They are fine but don't feel anywhere near their output ratings. The 1800 just barely kept up with our mid-level rehearsals (playing against an amplified acoustic!). I've kept the 900 for quiet churchy stuff and will likely dump the 1800 once I've sorted out my backup rig.

    Tone-wise, they're OK. Kinda without life, if that makes sense.

    The answer to these questions is invariably "not Behringer."

    save up some more monies, i picked up an 80 watt swr combo for 150 brand new, but that was probably a ridiculous steal.

    plan to spend like 300 dollars for something that worth having

    Get the Peavey, it will work when you need it to. The Behringer is a refurb so it has already been returned with a problem.
  7. played both the BX1200 and the TKO in a band situation. Couldn't hear the behr, could hear the peavey.

    thats all I needed.
