okay so yesterday my guitar player got a new amp. its a 120w crate half stack. im currently using an ashdown 180w combo and simply cant hear myself. ive heard that the bass amp needs to have 3 or 4 times more wattage than the guitar amp and right now thats not happening. im currently broke because i sent all my money on basses.... which now seems like a bad idea, but my band mates have desided to pitch in and buy me a new amp. heres where i need help, i need a 300w or greater bass amp it needs to be a stack because i plan on gigging with it, and it needs to cost less than $400.... so whats the highest quality amp in that price range?

THANKS

Wouldn't you need a head that can support more wattage than 180 if your using a 400w amp?

No. He has a 180 watt amp. If he adds in an extra speaker, therefore making it the head + cab of his current amp + the extra cab, he adds on to reach the full extent of his amp's power.

And if a cab is rated at 400 watts it means that's how much it can handle. If you pump a 500 watt head into a cab that handles 400 watts... say bye to that cab soon.
