Here's a question for you, fans of powerful amps: If you have, say, a 1000W bass amp, and you go through the PA, is it really necessary to have such a powerful amp? I've been playing medium sized venues with my 200W combo as a stage monitor, and going through the PA, and never had any trouble hearing myself on stage. I could use a bit more power, like maybe 350-400W, but what's the point of having something like 1000W? Am I missing something? I really don't mean to offend anyone, I'm just a little confused.
