First of all,I`m the one who calls himself "Old Rocker" Please read my review of the Behringer Ultracoustic if it gets published. As I mentioned in that other review, I own a few models of other AMPS. Read the PR on this model of CAB/SPEAKERS. The part of true to your amp is toatally Correct. If my other review segment on another amp is published, you will notice a viarety of amps & also my experience in years. Combine some other amps thru this CAB, "TUNE" your sound & tone. This particular Cab The Ultrastack BG412S WILL faithfully reproduce the sound of whatever amp you plug into it. That said, at 400 watts, the chances of damaging the drivers are slim. If my other reviews are published, you will see, that the amps I own are not to be taken litely, including the Behringer Ultracoustic wich will prove to be a perfect match, since it's in stereo wich these speaker cabs are designed to reproduce and Will reproduce in stereo or mono. Combine ANY amp with these Babies and you will NOT be dissapointent. Compare price versus perfomance, specs and sound and see and hear for yourself. I combine mine with every amp, guitar, and stomp box and other inboard and midi conections, and so far all I get is great sound & satisfaction. The caster complaint. Order a good set at the same time you order your new cab, and put that minor detail to rest. After all the sound doesn`t come from the casters. So do not deprive yourself from this GREAT SOUND at THIS GREAT PRICE on account of hearsay of "casters"

The cabinet was purchased new 2-2004. In June, however, we were playing a rehearsal using a MosValve 1160 (80 watts per side in stereo) and all of a sudden the sound from the cabinet just fadded away. Turns out that all 4 speakers fried. You can smell the burnt electrical insulation on each speaker. In over 20 years of being in the music business I never had a similar experience. It's a shame, though, because the cab reproduces what you put in it very well without adding any noticeable coloration. I was told that the cabinet is under warranty but shipping it back to the manufacturer costs $150, plus we can't afford to have this happen during a show.

This thing will blow a Marshall Cabinet out of the water. The spread of the sound is so much greater than normal cabinets. I am so happy to have bought this cabinet.If you want to make all those guys with their Marshall, Mesa/Boogie, etc. Cabinets look like fools, get this thing.
"Let your high wattage head out for a romp"... only if you want to BLOW your speakers. 3 out of 4 speakers have blown using this cabinet with a fender bassman 100 silverface. This is a 100 watt tube amp. 400 watts of power handling??? I don't believe it...I have owned this for about four years and toured with it so it's been around but still, to blow 3 speakers one after another is insane.
I used to own one of these but sold it when my band at the time broke up. Now that I'm back playing and writing music again and am on a somewhat limited budget, I'm going to buy this thing again.Anyone who overlooks this cab is making a terrible mistake. This thing cranks and sounds amazing. I was very surprised that the quality of sound was so good considering the price. If you are on a tight budget, this cab will hang with the any Mesa Boogie and Marshall cab despite the crappy coasters.Overall, this thing will rock just as hard as you want it too.
I'll go ahead and say the only problem with it, the casters. They're not rated for the 104lbs. But $20 puts new ones on, and I can tell ya, I've had the straight cab for 6 years and have never had a problem with it! It's been dropped, thrown, and even wet(beer at bar shows) and its never quit giving 110% performance. I run a marshal AVT150H through and it sounds ungodly good!! A must have for the price!
The complex geometry of this 4x12 is made to disperse your stereo image. That's a good thing.The price makes this very attractive too. There is a reason why it seems too good to be true.Behringer uses cheap speakers. Now if you want to buy the cab, spend some time and money replacing the crummy drivers with EV, or Eminence, or B&C or even Celestions, you might end up with a decent stereo cab. You'll need to rewire the whole thing too 'cause the wiring is flimsy, the jacks are plastic and the back plate is junk.For that kind of investment, it is easier and cheaper to buy or build a pair of 2x12 cabs and install good drivers from the start.
This cabinet will bring out the true character of your amp. I prefer this to any other cabinet I've played through (Marshall, Budda, Mesa/Boogie).It really says something about a company when they can offer a product that outperforms the competition - and STILL offer it at a price that is almost a quarter of the other products.Behringer has won my approval.
The Behringer Cab that is supposed to handle 400 watts, can't even handle 200watts from an amp head barely cranked up. The sides and back of the cabinet will get torn quickly if you move it an average amount even. 3 speakers got blown also, without the amp (thats 200watts, again) being up past volume 5. The wheels on it are horrible and moves in all sorts of directions and the grills screws are falling out and have fallen out. Horribly overratted. If you want a cab, save up for something WORTH IT.
I own the behringer bg412s for a month and still sounds good. Is hooked up with my Crate Blue voodoo 120 tube head and I push it the volume up and the volume sounds brutal for me I play death metal. Nice and loud and clear definition. And my casters works perfect no complain what so ever. Good job Behringer.
I play this out of a Peavey transtube supreme and it sounds pretty amazing. The distortion is low and grunt and the clean is crystal. For the pirce i would suggest this to anyone.
i have been using this cabinet for over 3 years, it is amazing. in fact it is so good the reason i am on here today is to order one for the other guitarist in my band. he has played marshall all his life. he plugged his head into my cabinet to see if there was a difference and i tell you what, this cabinet blows marshalls away. compared to the sound of the behringer marshalls sound like crap. i have never liked marshall because their wattage is low, but now i have another reason. if you play a lot of new metal, and you just cant seem to get enough low end from your amp now, try switching to this cabinet and you will be happy.
This thing is awesome. I bought it to go with my Line 6 spider 2 head and ESP EC-1000. I think I made a beautiful couple. This cab has the fattest lows and mids ever, and the highs are almost too much to bare(not a bad thing!). I would recommend this cab to anyone using a Line 6 head or a Marshall hi gain head, because it can handle the high gain and distortion great.
I've had this cab about 6 months & at first I was impressed with it. I use it with an RH 100 Randal head & a GTX-6 effects processor. Over the past few months I've noticed that the low end hasn't been able to keep up with my bass players rig who is only running 2 12's in a box. The speakers are having a hard time maintaing their volume. One minute they will be loud as Hell the next minute they will be quiet. This makes it hard to hear at times. I agree the CASTERS SUCK. Save yourself some trouble & replace them. The cab is built tough & weighs a ton. To save your back just have somebody else help you with it. I will be replacing the speakers with 12 inch Emenance speakers shortly. So by the time I'm done with that I'll have invested just as much as the cabinet originaly cost me.
Best stack I've ever had
I've played marshall cabs and mesa cabs before buying this, and this comes pretty close. I use a JCM 2000 and this Cabinet is loud and has pretty good tone, especially for the price. It's perfect for playing death metal and grincore.
I bought an Ultrastack like this brand new a few months ago, and it worked great for a week, then it just completely stopped operating altogether. The same thing happened to three other guitarists I know! This thing is total crap, that's why it's so cheap!
I was surprised to browse through the reviews and see so many negative things said about this cab. I have owned the Behringer BG412S for a little over a year and have had no problems with it to speak of. Other than normal wear and tear from giggin this cab is holding up great. I originally bought this cab to compliment my Behringer GMX1200H 2x60 watt Head, but now I run a Laney 120 watt head through it and this cab just pushes out the great tones. I have also ran a 200 watt Crate head, Peavey 5150 head, Line 6 Spider head, Ibanez 120 watt head, and a Marshall 100 watt tube head through this thing with no problems. The fact that you have the option to switch between Stereo and Mono settings right on the back of the cab are just awesome. My friend and co-guitarist runs the Behringer BG412H cab, he's had his longer than me and has had no problems what-so-ever with it either. I am going to eventually buy the straight front cab to compliment my angled cab. But in my opinion this is the best cab I have owned (compared to Crate, Peavey, and Line 6), I have been using it for non-stop gigging (local and out of town) and it has never let me down once, definitely worth more than it's sold for.
I got this cab for the specific reason that its a tank and it sounds awesome. I play in a Metal/Mathy/Hardcore band and i needed a cab that was gonna take all the punishment i can give it and still kick a** and be dependable. The only downfall to this cab has nothing to do with its sound...the casters suck, but that's it. You can't beat the price, if you want a new cab BUY THIS CAB.
it has a punch to it and it is very nice and afordable
I bought this cab due to the problem that I needed a cab and didn't have a lot of money. I run a Ibanez 150H amp head through it and the sound is amazing. I've owned it for about five monthes now and still havn't had a problem with it. Thats also cause I have a few shows per month. If you have a lot of money to spend buy a better cab but if you need something thats loud and is for a good price go ahead and buy this cab. You won't be disappointed.
I use the Ultrastack in larger venue gigs powered by a Vox AD120VT. The cab reproduces the sounds of the amp with great clarity, and has great punch. I've never had any problems with the stereo, and with a rotary, or stereo phasing the angled top speakers give a nice sonic spread (you have to mic both to really have it carry though). The Jensen speakers are what you'd expect for the price, and after three years and considerable abuse, it still sounds as good as it did when I bought it. Three of the four casters are blown, but again, it's a stereo 4x12 that sounds good and sells for a great low price. It's better than my other guitarist's Crate.
