    What is the loudest intergrated bass amp you have ever heard?

    There's really no real way to tell without the speaker.
     
  4. 70's SVT and two 8x10 cabs, no questions. In the realm of integrated amps that's about as loud as it gets. Why do you think all the really loud bands use them?

    I hear the volume knob on the EBS Fafner goes to 11, and it comes with a bag full of earplugs. Could it possibly compete with the SVT? Are there any louder solid-state integrated heads out there?
