I have never tried running just one power amp by itself, as I don't know if that's OK or if it might cause a problem with the head. I haven't tried bridged yet either. Your 1200 is pretty close to mine. What's your experience been in the different ways to run that head? Thanks for everyone's thoughts.
One power amp by itself is fine, as well as BRIDGING into a single 4 or 8 ohm cab, which only engages AMP1 volume knob (but with more power). With all the juice and the ability to bi-amp while setting your own crossover point, I just prefer two 12" cabs. Make sure the BRIDGE button on the back is pushed in when bridging and OUT when not (as it should be on yours now).
Reasons for two cabs: Easier to move, if one blows you're still in business, stages differ which causes me to reset my X-OVER knob, two volumes to adjust to different rooms, less distortion than most 212's, etc....
Amazing head. I brought it to my friend's, who built his own studio, and he was having a grand O'l time playing around with it.
