Bass Rig

What's the minimum wattage a bass amp needs to stand up to the guitar and drum kit?

I want to make sure that I get this right the first time when I go to look for one for my bass player..

From experience I'd say a MINIMUM of 150 Watts.
Anything smaller and you risk damaging the amp from trying to run it at full volume.
A bass amp needs a bit of head room and if the drummer is a heavy hitter then a bigger amp might be neded.
I use a 300 watt amp through 2 x 10" and 1 x 15" cabs and even that is sometimes trying a bit hard.
(admittedley since the new drummer has come aboard I've not struggled at all levels wise)
Often a monitor mix to you would help. Another trick is give the guitarist a monitor. He'll seem real loud and back off a bit. Same for the drummer if you or he/she can.
When it comes to bass, more power means better sound. I'm not talking volume here, more power can mean you get to setup the tone you want and not have to "put up with" needing to crank it. A fellow bass player in my town playes at the local pubs and uses a 1200 watt bass rig. Always sounds good and clear but never louder than needed.
If you have a Ferrari would you drive at full speed all the time?
