I'm toying with buying a new amp, my Ampeg B100-R is nice, but lacks power. I've been reading quite a bit about the Fender/Sunn 300 and the Ampeg SVT-CL on the forum. I hear about how 300 tube watts is "more" than 300 SS watts, is there any truth to this? Aside from a 4 times the power between a 300 & a 1200 watt amp, is the 1200 watter going to be 4 times as loud? Does a 300 watt amp have enough to power a 1000 watt 4x10 cab? Thanks for any information. I've only been playing Bass a little over a year now, & feel it's time to upgrade to an amp that will last awhile, & with all the choices out there, it seems overwhelming.
