    Looking for something that will drive to a 2 ohm load, sounds warm like Eden or Ampeg and is fairly small and/or light.

    Seems like the Aggies could use 300-400 watts each? :confused:

    What do you recommend?

    iAmp 800 - will take a 2ohm load

    GK 1001-II - will take a 4ohm load

    Try Eden WT-550! It can handle 2 ohm (620W), very lightweight and it sounds sooo sweet.

    For 2 ohm loads, and a good bit of juice, I really like the iAMP 800.

    yup,

    you wanted Eden, there you go.

    but the iAMP is NO slouch whatsoever. besides, with something like a SIB Fatdrive, i get all the woolly drive i need.

    So the IAMP is more hi-fi less warm?

    Define light? Under 20, 30, 40 lbs? I have a nice match for you on the other requirements except for possibly weight.

    Under 30 is OK, under 20 is much better.

    corrrect me if im wrong but isnt each cabinet 8ohms each? I use two gs112s with a Mesa Walkabout with no problem. That would be a 4om load at 150w to each cab if im not mistaken.

    Yes, but 3 of them means 2.67 ohms. ;)
