    What cab do you use with this one?

      A pair of RCF loaded 4x10 boxes. Very heavy with the cast frame drivers. Both cabs are 8ohms, so I run them in parallel to load down to 4 ohms. Sounds great, just a very wimpy 800W, not as powerful as my 25 year old Peavy MegaBass.

      oh really is it whimpy? everybody talks as ashdown as a powerfull way to go. I thought this was working well for high violume growly mids.

      I have a the 420w version and it is comparable to a Trace Elliot 400w amp that I have. But the input gain needs to be run 3/4 or higher. It's a powerful amp and it can kick some serious ampage.
