  1. Before you go spending all of your dough on stuff new, why don't you check out what's available used. The QSC you're looking at is under powered and you'd need to up-grade if you ever bought more cabs. Although Aguilar makes a great product, that little box might become an inconvienience. I would go rack-mount all the way. Here's a few things I found on E-Bay-

    A great Pre-Amp (I use the same one)-

    An AWESOME power amp (I have the newest version, 1400 watts!)-

    Another excellent power amp-

    I don't know anything about the Aguilar preamp, but I use a Sansamp DI with a poweramp, and it's only $10 more than the Aguilar. I like the tone I can get out of it, but then again, your taste could be much different from mine.

    Check out the Crest LT 1000 which does 1200 watts at 4 ohms and weighs 27 Lbs. I sell them for $550, and if you have an active bass I would suggest holding off on the preamp til you get some more money to buy something you really want. With an active bass you can run the amp just fine. When guys come into my shop I always plug them direct into a Crest LT series amp and into an Epifani or Bergantino cab to get a true understanding of the instrument with out coloring it.

    If you have any questions feel free to contact me and I'll be happy to help.
