Rating and Reviews: Behringer BXL450 Amp

At 45 Watts of power in a compact size and outfitted with a 5-band EQ and a built in distortion channel, this amp is versatile enough for most gigging needs.

Sound: The sound on the clean channel is smooth, tight and punchy. It loses the fundamental frequency and "doubles" below about 80 Hz, but you have to expect that with a low-power 10 inch. The distortion channel sounds gross to me - I would never use it, but that's just me. The amp is clean and has no hum, hiss or grounding problems. Feature: It's a bass amp, how many features do you need? The EQ feature works well and lets you shape the sound over a wide range, but the slide pots were crackly out of the box. They got better with use. Ease of Use: Easy enough. The controls on the distortion channel are a little odd, but I don't use them anyway. Quality: Overall quality is good, except for the dirty slide pots. It's reasonably well built, but it's a living room amp, not a road amp. Value: Excellent value in this price range. Manufacturer Support: Can't rate - don't know. The Wow Factor: It's not terribly sexy, but its value makes it appealing. Overall: It suits my purposes fine. I like its sound and size. Behringer dominates the bass combo market in this price range for a good reason. If it went away I'd replace it with another one or maybe one a little bigger for a fuller bottom end.

Sound: It's got good sound but not as loud as i would like. Good for practicing by yourself maybe with guitar player and drummer but idk. i use a louder one with my band. Feature: Bass amp you dont need alot of features. Though FBQ equalizer is pretty nice. Ease of Use: plug in turn on, if you cant figure that out your an idoit. Quality: Its a solid little amp with good quality. Value: I would save a little bit more cash for the 90 watt version, but for somebody with a budget this will do. The Wow Factor: its an amp doesnt have to look good. Overall: Its a good practice amp for just a bassist. Not quite loud enough for band practice but still a solid amp.
