    Hey All,
    I thought I would be muscle man but I am week and went back to carrying around a micro amp head. So this power amp has to go.
    This is a Crest CA9 power amp in really good condition in a Pearson 2 Space Deep Rack case, which it easier to carry around.
    This amp has plenty of balls. I used it with an Aguilar tone hammer and it sounded great. I tried a couple of Class D power amps and the CA9 is just heads above the others in pumping tight lows.

    Specs:

    Great input Sensitivity at .775v had no problem with pedal preamps.

    Rack case:

    I am trying not to ship this so for now local sale only.
    $450

    Does this one have speakon outs? How old is it? Are you only owner? Thx, DM

    No speakons only binding posts.
    I am not the original owner. I bought it second hand. So not sure how old it is.
    Everything is fully functional.

    Thanks for the info. So what do binding posts mean in terms of plugging into a cab that only has speakons? If it's not too much trouble, can you plz post a pic of the back of the amp? Is the binding post cable included with the amp?

    Sorry for being vague. They work with banana plugs. You can get a banana plug to speakon cable http://www.americanmusical.com/Item--i-HOS-SKT4XBN-LIST
    I made my own cables, but I am gonna keep them so I can rebuild my speakon cable.
    I am out for the weekend but will post some pics maybe Monday when I get back.

    Thanks for the info. I'm not up on this stuff. How long have you owned it and how has it been used (gigging, studio, pushed hard/soft, etc.)? Is it before Peavey bought CA (does the back say Peavey anywhere)? Thanks again, DM

    I am not the original owner. I bought it used from a restaurant owner who was going out of business so I am sure he didn't drive it hard. I used it to power 600 watts at 4ohms, so I am sure I wasn't driving it hard either. I gigged it twice, both outdoor gigs with no smoke or beer spills. It has been used, but not abused or pushed to limits. My cabs would blow up first if I pushed it to the limits ;-)
    I am not sure if it is from Peavey era or not. I don't recall it saying peavey on back but I won't know till I get a look at it when I get back into town on Monday.
    This is not the actual amp but it shows what the back and front look like.
