Since our wind ensemble has two bass players this year, our director wants to get some real bass amps (most likely due to the fact we practically blew out the speaker on the current one today), so what would the appropriate wattage be? I don't know what the budget is yet. I will make sure he doesn't get anything from the B word. What brands do you guys think is best for this kind of ensemble?

Yes

I dunno if I'll need 300 watts remember there are 2 players, and its a relatively small ensemble

the ba115 has a bad reputation around here, the ashdown however doesnt.

but i think you should get the amp with the most wattage possible, you will never know when you might need it.

I thinks separate amps are better in this situation as we nearly blew out the speaker today, altho I'm pretty sure its not a real bass amp or speaker.
