I traded my SVT6 behemoth in today for a new PLX 3102 QSC power amp. So far Im saving alot of weight and gaining alot of power so Im digging that. As for my Pre Im using a Sansamp pedal set as a preamp. Running bridged sounds full and bassy and even running one side sounds mighty fine. I do believe the sansamps one trick pony sound may get old soon so what I need is ideas/opinions, and related stories to Volume levels(which I think are ok so far..havent played it in a band), tone, reliability. I use SR5, Pedulla, and Spector basses all super hot as you all know so keep that in consideration. I love to play anything but since I have an SVT-cl I would like a pre that can be more flexible. Most likely you catch me in rock to metal situations as far as volume levels are concerned. Cabs used are 8x10 and 2X12 Bergie. All ideas welcome I love trying new stuff. -QSC-good idea? volume/output? -Pre amp help/ideas-transparent? -should I ditch the bergie for a 2x10 Bagend with the coax?
