Hi everyone, i'm a new Bass player (2 Months now) and have a question about my amp. I bought a BX4500H the other day, i wasn't planning on this amp but saw it in a used shop for 200 Cdn. It was brand new and i got him to throw in 2 really nice cords with it so i figure i did ok. Not to mention, i would much rather replace a 200$ Behringer than a 500$ amp from the music store when i have to (Saving up for the Ashdown 575 Watt x2 Amp) Problem is, in the manual it says to adjust the Gain until the meter shows half way. Even with the gain at full the meter only shows one third. Is this my bass just not sending enough signal ?? (It is a really crappy bass so i don't doubt it). Is this something i have to worry about ? I'm hoping to use this amp on stage in a few months at a local jam night (Got a bar that lets new bands come in and play 3 songs every thursday) and don't want to find out this isn't loud enough. Also my mid tones really vibrate everything like mad, i mean ALOT. Is this normal, do i just need to EQ it better ? My bass is next on the list to be upgraded, but that aint till December Thanks, Dan S.
