    I was on the Peavey site and was looking at the PV series poweramps. The PV 900 lookes like and has the exact same specs as the Crest CPX 900!

    I knew that, but if you could get the quality of Crest from a Peavey amp then you could save some major money.

    hey slapper,

    Make sure that you check your prices. I can get the QSC PLX power amps for a lot less than I can get the Peavey GPS series. I would consider those two series to be comparable. Also, I'm not so sure that the name Crest definitely means that it's better quality than Peavey.

    You mean Peavey owns a toothpaste company???

    Just kidding, of course. I have never heard of the Crest brand. Are they sold outside of the U.S.?
