    I think there is a typo on the Mesa site, cause this is what I have in my M9 manual....

    These are the Speaker Outputs for the CARBINE. These jacks accept Nuetrik locking SPEAKON type switch set to 8/4, your CARBINE will produce approximately 450 watts of clean power. A 4 ohm speaker load and the impedance switch set to 8/4, your CARBINE will produce approximately 900 watts of clean power. Due to a limiter circuit added to protect the amplifier, a 2 ohm speaker load with the impedance switch set to 2 OHM will still produce approximately 900 watts of clean power. When using a 2 ohm speaker load, make sure the SPEAKER IMPEDANCE switch is set to the 2 OHM

    The M6 has 600 watts, the M9 has 900...

    Just thought I'd share that, and that I LOVE my M9... super punchy.
    (sounds crazy good with treble guitar too!)

    Oh, and this is a GREAT price for this amp!

    Read the recent thread about this change in the Amps forum. Given the build date this amp could be either 600 or 900 watts depending on whether it has been updated to current specs or not...

    I will have to call into Mesa to inquire about this.

    I will not sell this head until I get it resolved.

    Thanks for the information..
