    Ive played a workingpro but never really at a loud enough volume to judge. I can tell you though that i have a BX4500H (i dont know how much it differs from the BX4500T) and its not as loud as it seems. It gets heard in rehearsal and smaller venues like a pub. But i dont think it gets much louder than that. My 300w Labsystems solidstate gets a hell of a lot louder than the "450w" behringer.

    On that note, the behringer isn't too quiet either. How loud do you need?

    Oops should be BX4500h

    Just upgraded to a workingpro 400. Wont have the opportunity to test the head to its limits and probably wont for quiet a while. i.e. dont want to try this at home :eek::eek:

    Was considering holding onto my old BX4500h as a backup and for louder gigs. It is dam loud and sounds quiet decent tru the workingpro 115 & 410. But if it was quieter than the workingpro I would just sell it!

    Unfortunatily as I said I cant test this without shaking the house :bassist::D

    you want volume or quality?
    behringer tends to put out alot less volume them they claim.

    I'd suggest looking at a G.K. 700. 800 or 1001 heads.
    There's a player here on T.B. that just bought a used, in great shape, "700 watt" G.K. 1001 head for $350.00.
    He found it in the T.B. classifieds.

    Never used an SWR before, but my 350w Hartke is a lot louder than my "450w" behringer.

    I have the Behringer head and it does sound better than you'd expect, but I seriously doubt the wattage. It is loud enough for club dates and the input is such that you can use boost pedals easily with it without overloading the preamp which is nice, but I would bet that the SWR would do better at most things, including volume.

    The question you should be asking is which will sound better and last longer? :)
