    I'd imagine Transparent and quiet. :bag:
  3. I've got to disagree. Although not as loud as some, there's no way that 800 watts into an Acme 2X10 could be considered quiet. I regularly do small to small/medium (25-150 people) size gigs with one. Whether or not it's enough is dependent on the loudness of your band.

    I'll second that. Last night I was rocking out with my new dark dirty groove trio, pumping 900W into a B2 courtesy of one channel of my PLX3002, and running more effects than you can shake a stick at (including at one point, synth into harmoniser into overdrive into fuzz, which is a HUGE sound) and it was loud, deep and effortless.

    800W from an iAmp would achieve almost exactly the same.

    P.S. And it would whip yo' bassman stack Ms Ox. :D

    well, i use my iAMP800 w/ my pair of Acme 1x10's for a total of 2 ohms, and its LOUD as a mofo.


    the EA cabs i've heard are pretty flat in frequency response. but compared to my Acme cabs, the EA's usually have this hyped top end. nothing wrong with it, but not as "flat" as the acmes claim to be. then again, that extra top end prolly helps with the "slice" factor.

    also, the EA line seems to have unreal punch factor. i've compared the EA CXL 1x12 with a few others, and the EA was simply astounding. prolly has to do with their super long transmission lines.

    now, if only they can figure a way for the cabs to reach 31Hz... ;)
