Hi, this is my first post. So hopefully this week i'm finally getting my first bass, but i'm having a bit of a dilemma between choosing an Orange crush 35B and a Hartke A25.

I've done a bit of researching and have read some good reviews about both amps. They are around the same price but obviously the Orange one have more wattage while on the Hartke have a cd inout and a limiter feature which i think maybe useful.

And also if i just intend to use it in my room for practice is 35w needed or is 20w sufficient?

Looks like the orange has a 12 inch speaker and the hartke only has an 8.
The 12" will give deeper bass, and I'd expect the 8" to give a more compressed boxy sound.
