Re: Portable bass amp recommendations... Psycho you out there?
This is probably not the suggestion you're looking for, but--  
 
Why not just get a decent bass cabinet and use a guitar amp? If you have a 50- or 100-watt guitar head, it would probably make a fine bass head when used with the right speakers. My latest bass rig is a 70s Ampeg V-4 guitar head through a Music Man 1-15 (guitar?) cabinet.  
 
I think this would be your lowest-cost option. But if you would rather get a bass combo, you might want to check out the Bass Gear Review Page:

Lots opinions on lots of gear there.  
 
Happy hunting,
