    Hey All

    As title reads,

    I'm looking for a Power amp which is between 100W and 200W at 8ohms

    10" (or there abouts but 10" is ideal) to fit in my shallow rack with my SVP Pro's

    Also UK sources are much appreciated as i am in the UK after all :hyper:

    Thanks in advance!

    ALSO and this is sort of important to the related topic, either the amp must have two channels to drive each Pre-amp and this would save some money

    or should i just buy two power amps?
    Would cost more and use valuable rack space??

    Opinions?

    Thanks Guys!
    AC,

    The QSC PLX series is ideal for you. Carvin also makes good shallow power amps, but I'm not sure I'd recommend them outside the US (for service issues). QSC will be fine internationally. Most power amps have two separate channels, so that's not going to be a problem for you to find.

    Question though, are you using different settings on each preamp? If so, is there a particular reason you want to send them to separate amps and separate speaker cabs?

    Thanks for the quick replies and the great advice guys!

    Well i have two separate rigs basically like a mini sheehan rig

    Two Pre amps two cabs but hopefully (as i need to save money and rack space) one power amp to power both pre amps

    if that makes sense?

    I'm poor with words haha

    basically two totally separate rigs joined by this power amp

    each set up is for each pickup of my two basses one is a Yammie Attitude the other a Modded P-bass

    Ah, go PLX then if you need 200w @ 8 ohms per side :) May want to check into the new Crown Drivecore XLS stuff too.

    OK, so each bass has two separate outputs, and one pickup goes to a "clean" rig while the other pup goes to a "dirty" rig?

    Yup pretty much on the money!

    except one is always dirty but the same "side" is always set up to be effected or run dirty

    so yes :)

    oh and it may be my poor googling but the PLX series has been discontinued?

    Anyone know where i can find them?
