    There's a Carvin 1000W Power Amp on BassGear right now going for $300 if I remember right.

    why buy a 500 watt amp when the DCM1000 is $400 bucks?
     
  6. carvin DPC 1000 (369 + shipping ) 700 watts bridged into 8 ohms
    QSC RMX 1400 (399 + shipping) 900 into 8 ohms bridged.
    Stewart 1.2 bout same as QSC accept 1 rack space and only 11 lbs. around $600
    I was considering these 3 when I ended up buying the Carvin.
