I am not really a fan of combo amps, but this is one good amp. Its LOUD. My friend can hear me from all the way at the end of my road, which is about 8 or 10 houses away from mine. I only had the master volume turned up a little! Anyway, the EQ is is alright, Ultrabass distortion sounds cool, and the pedal that comes with it is very helpful. Having two channels is always nice. It really isn't that heavy, maybe a little. My only problems are, first, it sounds a little sloppy when loud, and two, the plug-in wire is not that long.. but it is still an awesome amp. I would say buy it if you want a reasonable amp that sounds alright and isn't hard to move around.

Every experience I've had with the amp has been fail. I don't want to be negative, but my band hated this thing. First off, after the first three practices, we noticed we couldn't hear our bassist. That's because at higher volumes, the amp would stop producing signal. It's really bad about clipping and tuning out if you want it to be... audible. Second, this amp was built with a 12" speaker, which is a horrible idea if you want bass (That's why you see towers with 10" speakers, or those 15" cabs). The effects would be great with the amp if we could only turn up! Granted, our model might have been defected. We called Behringer support, and they would have fixed it if we payed shipping. Well, because the thing is near 60 pounds, the shipping would have been $50. Third, as stated before, it's HEAVY! I'm not sure if we just got a bad amp, but BE CAREFUL when thinking about this model. If you want a good amp, upgrade to the 15" speaker. If you want a practice amp, buy a 10" combo. Otherwise, you'll have a $250 really loud practice amp XD My suggestions would be to go to a pawn shop or find a used bass amp somewhere. You'll always get a better deal and they were built better in the 90's anyway. My band's name is Fear the Jackalope check us out, thanks.

Surprising amp.

By RICHARD MILLIGAN

from Clinton Township, MI

Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL1800 180W 1x12" Bass Combo:

My 4x10 cabinet and 500 watt head proved to be too much for the band I'm in now so I thought a combo was the way to go. I bought another brand used first but the circuitry was damaged. The bass vibrations had actually cracked a connection internally somewhere so I bought this Behringer new. I've been very surprised by it. Hearing all that sound come out of such a small package still defies logic. I've only turned the master to a little past quarter way up. It's so much lighter than carrying around a 90 pound cabinet as well. My band and myself are very happy.

Bass Ba Boom

By Cary Campen

from Seatttle Washington

Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL1800 180W 1x12" Bass Combo:

This BXL 1800 180W is my second Behringer Bass Combo Amp in four years. My first is a 300W. Both are terrific! Both have the second channel and Ultra-Bass pedals. Both are loud! Why did I buy a Behringer 180W amp? I first bought a 150W Fender combo amp, but I wasn't all that impressed; it was heavy to carry around, the sound was not different enough than my Behringer (people told me it would be), and the Behringer was about $100 less. So, I bought the 180W version. It's light enough to carry around. And, it's powerful enough to fill up a small auditorium. I like being able to shape the sound and to have the ultra-bass available quickly on the foot switch. Here's a tip: keep the EQ at center positions for most tones, but lower the levels on the ones that you want to be less pronounced. The sound is more crisp than if you turn the EQ up on the ones that you want more of. Bass Ba Boom!

Great Intermediate Amp

By Kev

from Phila. PA

Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL1800 180W 1x12" Bass Combo:

I bought this amp at last years clearance sale for the same price as the BXL900. At first, I questioned my decision until I learned about "overeqing". Once I learned how to shape the sound, I realized what a great bass amp I purchased! Plenty of power, great compressor, and decent eq. Most of the time, I leave the eq flat and use an outboard device to shape my sound. If you can get this amp at a discount, go for it!

AWESOME!!

By Joe Frickenstein

from New Lenox, IL

Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL1800 180W 1x12" Bass Combo:

This amp is fantastic. The ultra bass switch is amazing. Its an ecxellent device fer that extra professional sound for gigs. Also you can get real creative with channel 2 by creating your own type of sound whenever you need to switch over right away for a new song. basically and over all feel of playing this bass gives your body that rumbling feeling that a bass should. I recommend buying this fine peice of hardware.

JAMMIN LITTLE MONSTER

By STORM

from dallas, TX

Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL1800 180W 1x12" Bass Combo:

just got thisi amp a few days ago. This little monster wails. It does sound kind of fuzzy at high volumes but the EQ takes care of most of that up to about 3/4 volume. I am thinking of taking it back and gettin the 300 watt 15" aluminum version. Not sure yet I have to see if I have this painting job first.

This bass amp is amazing. The tilt back design gives the room its in an almost concert like sound and the built in EQ lets you customize your sound to your liking. Its the first bass amp ive bought and it works like a charm!

It's just OK

By Not Impressed

from Colorado

Comments about Behringer Ultrabass BXL1800 180W 1x12" Bass Combo:

OK for the money. I'm not too impressed though. It sounds only OK, but is a bit of distortion or ?whomping? from the speaker?it makes your bass sound a little garbled if that makes any sense. I wanted to get something that I could practice with and take to smaller gigs in place of my Ampeg combo which weighs like 110lbs. I guess it will do the job, but when compared to the Ampeg it sounds very poor.
