    Tech 21 Sansamp Tube Preamp:

    why even have the hartke in there? for EQ needs? is your sansamp rack or not? again why with the hartke?
     
  3. With all that other stuff there is no need for the Hartke.

    Iknow, but I just have the Hartke and SansAmp now, but once I get my Pyramid, no I won't need the Hartke. Thanks!

    That Pyramid Car Amp is going to be interesting to say the least in our rig...get your banana to 1/4" cables ready

    No, this Pyramid amp is a standard DJ-esque power amp. It has 1/4 Inputs.
     
  7. Pyramid is famous for displaying their "peak" power ratings, not RMS. When they say this amp puts out 1000w bridged@4ohms that really means about 500w rms. This is misleading and for that reason alone I would opt for a QSC RMX850 which is about the same price, probably more reliable, far less distortion, and at 830w rms bridged @4ohms a far better deal.

    The Pyramid website stated it will need banana plugs for the speakers.
