Anyone tried this out or have one?

220 Watt with a tube and a 15.
Tried it out last night and was impressed but was a bit worried about the output, some basses were loud some I had to turn the gain way up and the volume up to 3/4 just to be heard.
Amazing sound with the tube and with the right bass it really shakes the walls, low "B" is nice and tight and deep.

Going to check out that Monoblock soon but am not sure about that 1810 cab...kinda huge!!

Leaning to the seperates but trying lots before I commit.

Ampeg makes great stuff most of the time. The specs look very good on that amp. I would not worry about the output of the amp. They are all very different sounding on the same amp. I tested out some amps in the store using different basses on display and I found exactly the same thing. I found the Fenders, Yamahas nad Warwicks louder than say the Peaveys and the Epiphones. I think it is just the pickups and nothing else since the amps and bass settings were the same.

Some bases have hot pickups and some do not. It is not the amps fault. Test the amp out with your basses and see if it is what you want. See if they will let you take the amp home and try it out. I guess you can pay for it and return it if it is not what you want. Good music stores will let you do that!

So that is my theory and nothing else to "bass" it on!
