As a result of my seemingly endless search for just the right combination that still won't kill me to load in/out, this one is very promising. The Ashdown pre is warm and fat and the Crown really conveys it with plenty of clean power and headroom (I run it bridged, about 2K watts into 4 ohms). And the Epi cab has both punch and plenty of detail without sacrificing the low end. Not too shabby. The only downside is that both the rack and the cab are moderately heavy. Onstage, the whole thing sits on a Gramma pad.
