I have been using the SVT 7 at church. I got the gain at 3/4 or 3 o' clock, (full would be like 6 o'clock). I got the master at 12 o'clock straight up; no pa tie in. Im thinking of switching to the 1001rb. At GC, IMO the 1001 at 700 watts seemed louder than the SVT 7 at 1000 watts. I was using a 810 cab for test purposes. At church I use 2 Avatar sb12 8 ohm 1x12 cabs.
