Does anyone have experience with the current version of this amp?

I'm needing to pick up a bass amp and one of these popped up locally. I'm a longtime guitarist and have recently stepped into the bass world with a couple bands, and I'm tired of using whatever amp happens to be available . I'll be running this with a Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar Bass, the one with the active preamp and single humbucker if that matters.

I've read that in reality it's a 150W amp instead of 400W

If it's 150 watt RMS, it may struggle in certain band situations. I've never been blown away by any of my experiences with Peavey amps (especially in that regard).

The Peavey Tour TKO 115 is rated at 400 watts. It is loud, and a bit large for a typical 1x15" combo amplifier. It has a good tone and is a good amp for all but the louder gigs, since there is a speaker output to drive a separate cabinet. The only drawbacks are the large size (it is a very deep combo, which makes lifting it a bit difficult) and the fact that it weighs 73 pounds. But if you can handle the size and the weight, you'll have yourself a fine bass amplifier.

Yeah, I own one, and it hasn't let me down yet. I always use it with an extension cab, so either way I'll be getting the full 400w.

As previously said, great tone but really cumbersome.
