This Behringer Ultrabass BXL900A sounds amazing with its distortion channel and clean channel. I play punk, metal, and rock and the BXL900A is awesome. The first song I played with it was "Angel of Death" by Slayer and it sounded awesome, since then I've been playing Trivium and Avenged Sevenfold with it and it sounds great. The BXL900A is powerful with 90 watts. It has a great brutal bass distortion sound if you want, and a clean channel if you want. It has enough power to rattle your balls even when the master volume is only barely on. BXL900A features a 12-inch Bugera aluminum cone speaker.
Overall Impression — 9
I play heavy metal, punk, and rock and this is a perfect match for me. I've been playing for over a year now and this is the only bass amp I own. If it were stolen I'd hunt down the person who stole it, beat the crap out of them, take it back, make them buy me a new one so I'd have two or I might just save up and buy a new one. I love this amp's power and sound. The built-in equalizer is gangsta. Now that you've read my review, go to Guitar Center, lay down 180 bucks, and take home a 90 watt Behringer BXL900A Ultrabass.
Reliability & Durability — 10
The Behringer Ultrabass BXL900A is covered in carpet, with rubber corners. It features normal stand up positioning or tilt back monitor-style postitioning. It has a steel grate speaker coverer. I would use this amp in a gig because it is powerful. It has never broken down, but I've only had it for a few days. I would and actually plan on using it in a gig.

To start off, this Behringer Ultrabass BXL900A has 2 channels, one is just a clean channel with a gain control. It sounds good and has a nice tone for clean bass parts. The second channel is more changable; it has a gain control (for distortion), a shape control (can change the shape of your sound), and a level control that controls the volume for channel two. The BXL900A has an FBQ control that lets you see what frequencies you are playing. You modify the frequencies you play with a built in equalizer. This controls lets you change your sound a lot. Besides for the master volume, there is one more control. It is called ULtrabass. Ultrabass is basically an octaver; it creates sub-harmonics for the notes you are playing.
