    FS/FT:|: Carver PM 175 - $150 Shipped

    I took this in trade locally (another TB'er) and almost immediately picked up another amp, so I just don't need it. This is the image that was offered to me when I took it in trade. It's in great shape, but it's definitely been around the block. I will include a monster speaker cable (zip cord) that I've been using with it (1/4" to slotted ends for the banana jack connector).

    This is from the late 1980s I believe.

    Per the manual, the power ratings are:

    Mono:
    175 w/channel into 8 ohms
    250 w/channel into 4 ohms
    300 w/channel into 2 ohms

    Bridged:
    500 w into 8 ohms
    400 w into 16 ohms

    I have been using this to power my bass rig (Bass Pod PRO with 2 Hartke Cabinets) and the sound is AMAZING.

    These are the cleanest and best built power amp out there!

    If I had the spare Ca$h i'd snag it in a second!!!

    Snowy day bump... I am leaning towards cash only on this one, as I'm using it right now and kinda loving it. :)
