Alright, so I am not that new to bass, I've gotten hot and cold and played for about two years. But aside from that I just bought a new 300w behringer bass head http://www.behringer.com/BX3000T/index.cfm?lang=ENG and I checked out alot of reviews about this head, and it seemed great. I only need something to be durable and loud enough to cover drums. However, at the moment I can only tell you that this amp is not loud enough to cover drums, and it farts sound out at maxed quality. Does anybody have any ideas how I can boost the volume / fix the head?

I've only played through that cab twice, and its the only cab I've tried this head with. I'm not sure on the specs but I know that the both of the 10" drivers have been replaced with high quality 250w ones.

well you need a more powerful cab. if your head is 300w and the cab is only 250w, then the sound would be really distorted at full volume, so you need a new cab.

You bought Behringer, it would seem that with their amps they list the output wattage as much closer to the peak handling rather than the RMS that the amp will normally run at, also, the tone on them is absolutely horrible, you won't find many tones that don't sound like a wet fart.

Don't trust online reviews on sites that are selling them.

They have every reason to fake the reviews so as to shift more units.

Behringer amplifiers and effects have a bad reputation among bassists (although their pro audio equipment is supposed to be fine) for very good reason.

Reserch more than on the site trying to sell it to you next time.

how many ohms is your cabinet? if it's 8 ohms then you're not getting the full power out of your head. The head is rated at 300 watts at 4 ohms. So, if you have an 8 ohm cabinet go buy another 8ohm cabinet and not only will you get more power but more speakers will also boost your volume a good bit.

remember that the wattage handling doesn't mean the volume. Of course, you have to be able to handle the amount of watts from the head and more watts will be more volume but the sensitivity of your speaker has a lot to do with it too.
