Is it just me or are amps getting more and more power every year? maybe I am just an old man, but it seems every amp is 400 or 500 watts. These are even seen as the lower side of what you need. I remember when the GK 700 or 800 came out, it was like WOW, way too much power. Are the newer designs not as efficent or are our needs greater. I am simply curious, not wanting to start any weird wars or anything. In the 80's it seemed like 300 watts was a lot unless you were playing stadiums. Every club I played in (300 or 400 bodies) my volume was ample and that was without PA support. Just one old mans observation.
