    Anyone have any experience using Crest Audio power amps with bass? I have a chance to pick up an LT-1000 series cheap and wonder how it would fare with a quality preamp. How would it compare to a Mackie 1400i?
    Any feedback is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    James
     
  2. I highly recommend Crest. I've read enough about reliability issues with Mackie power amps that I don't think I'd buy one. I use a Crest V1100 and I'm very pleased with it.

    I was in the market for a power amp also. Crest LT1000 was one of my choices. But I heard from several places that carry crest that they have reliabilty problems. So I bought the QSC PLX1602 instead. It should arrive today:D
