Lord knows they *look* promising on paper--$280 gets you a 180w 12" combo, and for $300 you get a 15". I'm new to bass, i've heard good things about Ashdown, and I'm tempted to buy one. but I also found out that the *old* EB combos cost more like $400 and i'm wondering where the savings are. $280 for 180 watts is Behringer territory and they're not supposed to be stellar on the reliability front. Before I shell out for one, any comments? p.s. I'm not a huge ebay fan--don't know enough yet not to get screwed.
