    Bought brand new 6 months ago from Bass Specialties. Used only in my home music studio and at one wedding. The Class D amp puts out 300W @ 8 ohms, and is mated to a 1x15" speaker and compression tweeter in a front ported, lightweight cabinet. This combo produces big, warm, round, low-end and clear mid-range reproduction. The adjustable tweeter adds just the right amount of snap. This is the perfect combo amp for rehearsals and small-medium gigs.

    First $525 gets it, cash and carry! The street price is $799. Local sale only in Philly/NJ/Wilmington area. Great chance to get legendary Genz Benz quality in a convenient combo and affordable price.
