Good power amp threads?
I did a quick search but I couldn't find much, I don't use the internet much either...
I'm a bit bewildered by the amount of choice and some of them just seem too powerful, QSC seem like a good brand but they have 12 different types of amp :confused:
It's to drive a single ACME B-4 series 2, 4 ohm
There was a Crown XTi 2000 in the TB Classifieds recently for under 300, may still be there. I have one in one of my racks and it has plenty of clean power and is very lightweight.
Start by rigidly defining your budget, that will pare down your choices substantially.
I use a Peavey IPR1600 with my ToneHammer Pre/DI and Eden WTDI. Sounds great, solidly built, lightweight, good amount of power (for what I do anyway), simple but useful feature set, and inexpensive.
Next, look at the amount of power you realistically need/want.
After that, look at your preamp and find out which amps have an input sensitivity that matches well with your preamp.
Carvin makes good stuff at a good price point.
They are my go to brand for amps.
I guess $300 is about how much I want to spend, I hear the SansAmp RBI/RPM is a good choice so that's what i'm gunning for?
I'm not too fussed on power, I obviously want lots of head-room but I want a well made product more than anything else?
If weight is not an issue a qsc rmx 2450 or a used Crown K2 are stout choices.
I own several QSC-PLX at 21 pounds each.
Solid and reliable.
I recently bought a Crest Prolite2 for its Class-D size and built-in 100 Hz 4th order crossover.
Another Peavey IPR1600 user here! Light (as in "not heavy") and light (as in "enough LEDs to make the whole stage shine in that nice blue").
Plenty of power (for me!!) - 300€ new
Like bgavin, I'm a fan of first-generation QSC PLX amps. They're versatile, reliable, easily repaired when they do break, and common enough to be cheap.
My current rig has a Peavey IPR 3000 DSP for the weight reduction and modest DSP. If you are looking for an inexpensive, modern, lightweight power amp, I would suggest the IPR 2 series or Crest ProLite.
