    The good news is that I got one today. The bad news is that it's not for my bass rig.

    I just decided to finally upgrade my "BIG PA" power amp. We've been running it off a QSC MX1500a for years, and I just wanted to give the subs and mains the headroom they deserve. It puts out 1,100 watts per channel into 4 ohms (which is what we run), but if I add speakers, it'll do 1,700 watts per channel into 2 ohms. This should suffice for now. Our "BIG PA" includes a couple JBL M918 subs and a couple JBL M935 3-way mains. It's nice and loud with the MX1500a, but should fully rule with the 3402 (as long as I don't blow up the danged speakers).
