Hartke has a couple of amps called the LH-500 and LH-1000 that have good reviews and are considered good amps. However, I've noticed that nowhere does it actually say that these wattage ratings are RMS. If these are program watts, or peak watts, rather than watts RMS, they are inflated numbers. I know they use program watts when talking about PA systems, but when talking about bass amps, RMS is the only number that counts, and it's how we compare one amp's output to another. I haven't contacted Hartke to ask how they're measuring their watts but I just saw this: https://media.sweetwater.com/api/i/...09f/images/items/750/KB12-large.jpg.auto.webp They're marketing that as a 500w amp when in fact it's 250w RMS/500w peak according to the specs.
