Can anyone tell me which of these is better. Im not sure what the diffrence is besides wattage and the tube, also what does a tube preamp do?

Neither. Ampeg combos leave much to be desired.

For 700, you can get a Carvin combo, Ashdown stack, Fender Pro combo (I think), tons of other stuff. The BA stuff isn't well designed, and Ampeg's quality has gone down since they started being MIC.
