    Carvin BX1500 -$350 Shipping Included to 48 States
    Carvin - 1500 watts, 10 pounds, and Made in the USA. Never been gigged and used maybe an hour. I have too many amps and no need for this kind of power. I may have original box, but not sure.

    From Carvin site:

    The BX1500 dual mono block rack mount bass head delivers huge power that's rich and warm all generated from discrete, 12AX7-driven Class A preamps and powerful, reliable power amps. The comprehensive EQ is fun to work, shaping all your tones to perfection. There is not a more powerfully featured, fabulous sounding bass head on the market, and this one is an ultra-light 10 lbs.

    BX1500 Features:

    - 2 power amps deliver 300w at 8 ohm, 450w at 4 ohms, and 750w at 2 ohm each or 900w at 8 ohm bridged or 1500w at 4 ohms bridged
    - Rich, warm 12AX7 tube drives each power amp and features a rear In/Out switch
    - 3 EQ sections, the Contour Control going from a flat mid response to a heavy scooped mid response for slap bass players, the 3 mid sweeps with Bass and Treble precisely dial in your exact needs, and the 9 band graphic is perfect for overall tone shaping – foot switchable. No bass head has more tonal flexibility.
    - A one knob compressor adjusts for smooth light compression and the internal amp limiters hold everything.
    - Bi-Amping is easily done from the front panel crossover control with each amp setting it own level for the HI and LO balance
    - Everything is nicely controlled with independent Amp 1 & 2 Levels and a Master Volume
    - A conveniently located Mute switch and an Active/Passive switch to tailor the input for different pickup configurations, plus Graphic EQ,Effects and X-over front panel switches
    - The rear panel features an XLR Balanced DIRECT output with Level control and pre or post switch.
    - 3 High current Speakon™ 1/4-inch combo speaker connectors are for Amp 1, 2 and Bridge
    - Rear panel Effect loop, stereo amp patch inserts and an un-muted turner jacks.
    - The CLASS D power amps feature high current, high speed FET output devices for optimal 2 ohm current.
    - The high headroom reveals its high dynamic power from the Switchmode power supply that operates at 100,000 Hz delivering maximum efficiency while reducing weight.
    - The head runs cool from its 94% efficiency. There is no wasted heat or energy from the AC Wall plug
    - Size: 2U rack mount 19" wide x 10.5" deep x 3.5" high
    - Weight: 10 lbs
    - Made in the USA
