**Update, see post way below** Hey all, I'm looking to buy an amp head and cab to replace a crate 100 watt combo amp and I could use a little advice about the used gear I've found at a local store. I don't think I need to remind you that I'm on a budget (hence the buying used part), and I do realize that I will not get a high quality sound out of cheap gear. Any help is appreciated. Here are the things that have caught my eye: 1. A Crate BFX-220H amp head for $220 It's rated at 220 watts at 4 ohms and 150 at 8, going by what it says on the back of the amp. It's a little pricy, but if it's that much better than the others, I could make do. 2. Fender BXR (model?: PR 286) amp head for $180 Not entirely sure whether the model is BXR or PR 286. The store owner said about 200 watts at 4 ohms. 3. A Kustom 200 (model: K-200B) amp head for $100 This thing is old, but I figure if it has lasted this long it could last a little longer. The store owners said that it's about 100 watts (RMS) but they weren't totally sure. The 200 in the model name makes me question this, so I was wondering if anyone knew anything about Kustom amps. I found something similar on craigslist http://southjersey.craigslist.org/msg/590340841.html but the store is selling just the head. Going by this person's 100 watt description, I think I'll look for something else. 4. Xtreme Audio 210 speaker cab for somewhere around $120 last time I checked, but there was no price tag today so I think I could bargain this price because of the following information. The store owner refered to this as a "kicker" because basically it's "A bass cabinet with car speakers in it." The impedence is 8 ohms, which gives me room to add on in the future and it's rated at 400 watts, max...something else, I figure I won't have a head that can push it past 400 watts if I'm using this cheap thing. This is the one I really need advice for. I really want a 210 cab because a 15" cab won't fit in my car and I have to borrow someone else's to go practice. It's a huge hassle so I'm really looking at a 210 setup, or possibly a 112. I couldn't find any other 210's in the store or any 112's. There was one huge 115 that's bigger than my current amp, so that's a no go. I'm researching all of these on the internet to look at price comparisons. I'm also going to take a look at guitar center to see if they have any used gear, but I doubt they will have anything in my range. As for these heads, I would initially go for the Kustom, but the 100 watts throws me off. I want a little more. If it turns out it's 200 watts, I would probably go for it, but if it is like the owner said than I was thinking of going with the fender. As for the cab, the Xtreme Audio is the only thing I can find at the moment. So do you guys/gals have any advice on my selection? Should I buy a new cab somewhere instead of the xtreme Audio? I tried to do my research at the store and I'm looking up this stuff for more info, but I would appreciate any information or experience about these amps that you can offer, especially the Kustom and the Xtreme Audio. Thanks for any help.
