I debated for about six months before purchasing this product. The price seemed too low for this to be a quality product. Then one night about two weeks from a major gig I blew out one of the 10s on my Peavy 410 cab. I broke down and bought this cab, as well as the Behinger BB210 cab. I was not disappointed when they came (three days before the gig).First off, they do smell funky when they come out of the box (probably due to the epoxy used in construction, or the carpet glue). Furthermore, this smell has not yet gone away, and I have had them for almost 3 months.I plugged them into my Peavy Mark VIII bass head for the first time two days before the show. I was very pleased with the warm, traditional tone I got from the paper cones. Depending on the treble settings, I did notice the hiss other reviewers of the ultrabass series have complained of, but careful eq-ing took care of that. The tweeter put out crisp, clear treble that added the attack dynamics missing with it off. An attenuation option would be nice for the tweeter, but for the price is not expected.When it came time to move them, the wheels helped very little. They are nice for short drags across the stage, but not realistic for longer journeys (unless you are shorter than me, @ 5'8")What really blew me away though, and what prompted me to finally write a review, was when I connected my effects pedal the other day when messing around with our drummer. He wanted to play some heavy stuff, and so I cranked the distortion. The sound I got from these cabs BLEW ME AWAY. The distortion was excedingly crisp, and the cabs handled far more volume than I expected. I purchased these as emergency fill in cabs, but would replace them in a second if stolen or blown. If you are looking for excelent value, you could do alot worse than these cabs. I have used the bb115 cab alone @ a small gig, and it performed well, but I would really recomend buying a full or 3/4 stack, as the price allows this and the sound is worth it.

Simple:Good for Beginners with little money and a cheap bass, HORRIBLE for bassist who need to perform live for large amounts of people.Pros: Cheap, Rugged, Nice side wheels, Cheap, nice back panel, cheap, handles lots of power.cons: tone is very bad, the cab is very shallow so it is not that acustically low.Bottom line: Behringer cabs sound horrible becuase of (a) the speakers they use are sub par, (b) their construction, while rugged, wasn't created with tone in mind, (c) and the Freq. Scale Behringer uses is very inacurrate becuase this thing breaks up on the low E.Save Up for a better quality brand unless your playing for your parents in your bedroom.

I play a Tech 21 RBI preamp through a Mackie FR2500 power amp and this cab really thumps! I solely use a pick. My axe is a Schecter Stiletto Studio 4 with EMG DC-5 pickups.... REALLY hot pickups. I play in B standard, and this cab delivers the lows with aplomb. It really dishes out low-end thunder without compromising note clarity or hiding the nuances of my technique. I like feeling secure in the fact that I can push this cab all the way to 575W with my Mackie without fear of a speaker detonation. I am now a proud Behringer user and in the future I plan to invest in two BB210s and two BB115 for big concerts.As noted in many other reviews, the tweeter is unusable.
This cabinet has great warm tone. It is not overly bright like the aluminum cones. It handles my 5 string like a charm, even the low B without rattle. I was pushing 450 Watts to it using a Behringer BX4500 and it sounded great. It is also not an overly heavy cabinet @ 70lbs. I can move it on my own and the wheels are great. I am 5'7" and don't have a problem rolling it around or picking it up and moving it. I use mine with a BB210 but I would recommend getting a biamp or a poweramp and crossover as the BB210 does not handle the lows very well. I am returning the BX4500 to "upgrade" to a preamp-poweramp setup so that I can use a crossover with the BB210. See my review on the BB210.
This cabinet has been a solid workhorse for me. The tone is great for the money, it is light weight ( someone complained about the weight. I think it is light comparatively )and it can handle whatever I throw at it: funk,punk,rock,pop..it all sounds great. It hasn't been all peaches and cream, though. At one point it developed a crackling sound at some volumes. I took it apart and discovered that one of the wires inside had come loose due to cheap soldering. I fixed it but I rather not waste my practice time resoldering connections.The tweeter does hiss badly. I run through an EQ so I can minimize it but if you don't have this option and you play a softer style of music, it will be very noticeable.It may be light but for crissake please don't build a cabinet without casters! The little wheels are an interesting thought but they get caught on the smallest pepples and the lowest carpet.I rated this cabinet fairly high because I just keep coming back to it. I bought the Behringer BA410 4X10 cabinet to fill out my sound and the thing sounds like garbage. I have switched heads and amps and effects and this baby just keeps on giving. I keep waiting for it to sound badly under some circumstance and it just doesn't happen.
I've done about a half dozen gigs with this thing in the past month or so and I gotta say, if you can't get good sound from this cabinet, you need a new amp!I've used it with and without the tweeter and it just sounds great; no rattles or clipping at all. It's quiet when it should be and booms when you crank it.It was my first Behringer item and I am totally pleased with it, so much so that I ordered a behringer pa mixer/amp. Both perform wonderfully.If you need a bass cab that will boom and handle some serious wattage, I highly recommend this.
This cab sounds good and fits easily in a small car (trunk or back seat). It doesn't have the bottom I would expect from a 1X15 cab (below G). The tweeter works well but have considered using a fader at the tweeter switch output.
This cab is solid. It took a tumble down a flight of stairs and all it did was scuff the plastic corners! The power handling is great too. 600 watts is insane for this price and gives you the security to crank up in those loud venues. Its tone is nice and deep. I love the rumble! Really brings out the depth on a 5-string. Tweeter is a bummer though... Sounds great until you blow it from slapping or hard picking. Best to turn it off or just use your fingers.
I've owned this cab for about a year now, and it's treated me well, but I wish I had saved up and bought something better.It is solid, but it is also very heavy (of course any cab this affordable will be very heavy) I put some casters on it and now moving it's not a problem.The 15 is all bass of course, but I can't use little horn because everytime I turn it on a horrible hum starts up, I mean horrible. If only it didn't do that I think I could get decent sound out of it, but right now, paired with a 2*10 cab that is equally cheap, I can't get a very good tone.I like behriner stuff, and this is a good deal for the money-don't get me wrong-but the cab does have it's problems.On a last note; the cab is not very deep, my backline 2*10 cab hangs off the back of it, so consider the dimesions of this before you go to pair it with another cab.
I got this Cab over a year ago and have used it for many gigs, both small clubs and larger ballroom type halls.As said- the wheels don't do much good ( I forgot they were there) The cab is bulky too- It fits in my back seat OK. The sound/ tone is really not bad. I can get some decent tones out of this box or if use a 2/10 at the same time.I have had zero problems with it in a year and a half.
This cab is an awesome value. It can get very loud and has a decent full range sound. Gigs are not a problem for this cabinet. The cabinet is very well constructed. My only complaint is that the side wheels are absolutely useless, they do not roll well at all. If you buy this, be prepared to go to the hardware store and get some casters for it. The speaker isn't the best quality, but the sound of it is good enough for what this cabinet costs. Sure, it's not going to sound as sweet as the most expensive cabinets out there, but you cant beat the sound for the price here.
The moment I pulled it out of the box I was happy. It looked TEXAS TUFF! Then I Let my Behringer Ultrabass BX3000 do it's job and at that point I was loving it. I gave the features a 9 because the tweeter has a hiss I just can't block out when I use it to practice by myself. However, when I play with the music monsters I jam with , I don't even notice. All the other features to me are 10's. Behringer Rocks!!! I also play out of the Bass v-Amp by Behringer and it's all good.
