    This bugger showed up and got put to immediate use. What they say about the LEDs is true.

    I won't be able to drive it hard until I pick up the Thunderchild from my old band spot.

    Nice. I love my IPR. I've been using it for a couple years now and its also been dual use for PA and Bass.

    I love the feeling of headroom. I meant to buy a 3k but I am not disappointed with this.

    I'll hook this to two TC118's when the time comes... Earthquake!!!

    We ran into some sound problems at last night's gig and I ended up powering JBL 15's with horns for the front end off of one side of the IPR all night and used the other half for my bass amp.

    I need it to swing mains and monitor for me so that's good news. :)

    I've done that too. Also nice because they're good to 2ohms a side, so you can string up a handful of monitors if needed. Occasionally we'll have a gig where I use my backup amp and we use the IPR for all PA duties (keeping in mind that it's 15's with horns, etc.). Last night we had powered subs, so that wasn't a problem it was the 15's. I didn't even have it close to opened up and it was crankin' loud.

    I'll be using it with 2 12" mains and either a 10" monitor or a 15" sub for the most part. I know it has a lot more to give than my junky PA. :D

    The nice thing is that if you've got a need for more than a couple monitors, you can use 4 8ohm boxes. Or you can double upon the front end if needed. We've done 15's and 12's out front before too.

    Well, there is a very good chance I will be acquiring a second Thunderchild 118. If I know Duke's designs, they'll make the biggest, baddest PA ever. Then I can run my three 8 ohm cabs as monitors off the other side.
