If I go the power amp route would a Crown XLS 1500 and SansAmp RPM work well with a Hartke Hydrive 410?
Any help is appreciated....
The only benefit that I see is you shed a little weight with the Crown. The benefit of using the LH1000 is you get a secondary pre amp. If you run the RPM in the effects loop, you can use a foot switch to turn it on and off, basically adding a second channel to an already decent amp.
In either case you will have more than enough power to turn a 410 in to a paper weight.
