    I have a question for all the experts. I currently us an Ampeg B2R head to power my 2 Eden cabinets. Some gigs I am pushing the B2 to it's limit and could use a little more oomph. To minimize my investment, could I use the B2R as a preamp and power something like an RMX1450? This would definately give me some headroom. Will the Ampeg be okay running no load?

    Thanks for the help.

    Being a solid state amp, it probably is... Best bet to get the answer straight from the horse's mouth...i.e. call/write Ampeg.

    I love the tone of the B2R preamp and if I owned one I'd probably do the same thing.

    The tone is awesome and it's built like a tank. Pretty portable too.

    Does the B2 have a preamp output? If so then yes.

    Yes it does. Post EQ.
