I've never owned one, but been playing for 30 years. Here's my impressions. The bridge is floating - not secured. That and the fact that it's tweakable, but not really fine tuneable, could mean some...

That CIJ serial number looks sketchy to me. I've seen it in older guitars, but that bass is nowhere near old enough for the waterslide decal to have changed tint. Slightly raised sometimes, but not...

Your budget is nice, but probably excessive. And,...

No. Heads do not have speakers. If they did, they'd be called combos and not heads. Some tube amps have openings behind the mesh grill for ventilation. Tubes get hot.
