I am buying brooklynbassguys 15/6/1. I am looking at three options for power and have worn out the search function. If anyone can tell me anything Ive missed, please let me know. You need 800 watts at 8 ohms to push a 15/6/1 all the way, plus headroom. I am actually going to try to double with this thing - I play in an acoustic cover band that plays outdoor festivals. At the smaller ones I carry the room. Peavey IPR 3000 $380 plus shipping = $400. Adjustable high-pass filter. 4 bands of true parametric (center, slope, amount) eq tho its buried in a menu and not adjustable mid-set. Active crossover that I wont use unless I rewire the cabinet for that option. 880 watts bridged into the 8 ohm fEARful through a homemade cable. Peavey engineers say its ok to bridge, people here have done it with no reported failures - but its not officially supported in the manual. Crown DriveCore 1500 $399 at GC. Adjustable high-pass filter. Active crossover that I wont use unless I rewire the cabinet for that option. 1,050 watts into the 8 ohm fEARful. Initially I will use either a sansamp BDDI or the pre from my current head, but I am also considering: Carvin BX1500 bass amp $569. Has a preamp (obviously, and one tube for whatever thats worth). Its only 10 pounds so youre not killing yourself with weight if you add a second pre. I might add a real double bass pre someday and switch it in and out with the switchable effects loop. In addition to bass and treble, 3 bands of accessible semi-parametric (center and amount) mid eq, a graphic eq and 1 knob slope. Footswitch available for graphic eq. Not dead flat like a poweramp but its been scoped and there are instructions on TB how to set it flat as a reference point. 1 knob compressor I might use Im not a compressor fiend and this must be optimized. Active crossover that I wont use unless I rewire the cabinet for that option. 900 watts into the 8 ohm fEARful. No high pass filter, however. It looks like the choice is between the IPR with the high pass filter or the Carvin with the preamp (plus $170 plus the cost of an outboard high pass filter). Have I missed anything? is there any reasonably clear cut winner here?
