which BASS-amp


I'm a guitarplayer, but since our bassplayer left us, I decided to sell one of my guitars and buy a bass and amp.
Now I would like to have some advice; (BTW I live in Belgium and prices here are much higher than in US (double or more), and I'm on a budget).

For the bass, I've already found a Fender standard jazz bass on E-bay; for the amp i was thinking of something small (70-120W), since we don't have any gigs that I know of in the nearby future.
I was thinking of a Peavey basic 112 or TKO 115, Hartke B90 or kickback, Laney RBW 100, Hughes and kettner L, .... But then I saw a SUN BETA BASS on Ebay, very old (it's from +- 1970 I heard) but with 300 W on board and pretty cheap. It also has a Peavey woofer black widow with it.

Is there a lot of difference between (in sound) the amps I named and this SUNN amp. Is it worth the risk?
Is it really 300 W, 'cause in the reviews they're talking of 100 W RMS ?

and the woofer? Is it a sort of horn?

And the bass, I've heard people say the MIM is only as good as a squier but twice the price??

many thanks!
