I see Yorkville bass amps all the time used for a lot less than amps with the same wattage. Is this because they're inferior?

No, they're just a small company that wants recognised as a big player in the amp industry so they sell as cheap as they can. Basically they don't jack up the price as much as other suppliers do.
They use Eminence speakers, which are a very popular (and trusted) brand.

Not that any of this makes them better or worse, you'd have to a/b compare it to a more expensive amp to see for yourself.

Thanks! Maybe I'll look into some used Yorkville amps.

Yorkville are great. I used them in my school band and their great. I would get one as part of my rig if I had the cash
