    Used Crest CA9 power amp 900 watts per channel at 4 ohms (how I run it) lots of head room. Will go down to 2 ohms per side. The amp is in overall very good condition, just heavy. Specs for this amp are very easy to get on line. Let me know if you need more info.
    Would prefer local pick up in NC but can ship.

    Eden WP100 Navigator pre amp complete with rack ears and foot switch. Probably the single best piece of equipment that I own with the exception of my Sadowsky. This pre is 2 days old and is flawless! I just came to the conclusion that the separates just create to much weight so it's all going.

    Crest- $450.00 + shipping (was $525.00)
    Eden- $500.00+ shipping ( was $575.00) ImageUploadedByTalkBass.com1359647382.109206.jpg ImageUploadedByTalkBass.com1359647401.101434.jpg

    I'm going back to my Streamliner 900 with 2 DNA112 8ohm cabs and maybe my back will last a few more years!

    You might want to consider this. First of all, you have, in your possession probably one of the most effecient and best Bass Pre Amps on the planet. The Eden WP100 was voted the best bass pre amp by bestcovery.com. I so totally agree with their choice. I understand how weight can be a concern. I got shot out of a helicopter in Viet Nam and landed on my back. Heavy bass equipment is not a friend of mine. Give this some thought. The Peavey IPR 1600 is on sale from most of the online music stores for $299.95. IE: Zzounds. Even if you have terrible credit, not saying that you do, all you have to do is prove that you actually exist and they will let you make 4 equal payments of $74.99. That's 1600 watts of class D amplification. Your power amp weighs 47 lbs. The Peavey IPR 1600 weighs 6 lbs and will also operate at only 2 ohms. You will lighten your load to only 6 lbs plus the weight of the Eden WP100 ( 9 lbs ). That's 15 lbs verses 56 lbs ( plus the weight of your rack ) and will be able to keep your Eden WP100 . 56 lbs vs 15 lbs ? Seems like a no brainer to me. I'm not associated with Peavey or any other company. I am striving to get into that same set up myself and thought I would recomment it to you. Best of luck.

    I know you are correct about the overall situation but it goes a little further than just the amp. I can by a Crown 2002 for $350.00 and really have something. The overall problem is that I play every weekend. Fact is we play 100 shows a year up and down the east coast and even with a class D power amp, I still have to lug my Bergantino Ht322, my Schroeder 1212, the amp rack and a large cable bag that contains my fan, guitar stands, pedals, ect. A lot of times stairs are involved (recent frat gig at UVA had 4 flights of stairs to get to the stage). I own a Genz Benz Streamliner 900 (8 pounds), I just bought 2 DNA DNS112n cabs (30 pounds each). Going to by a smaller fan and bag and I'll be golden! I just need to sell the best bass rig in the world!
