does anyone know of a power amp that puts out 700 to 750 watts @ 4 ohms mono bridge.
I believe there are quite a few. I'm sure Peavey has one and Crown as well.
all i need is 750w @ 4ohms to power 1 cab. most of the power amps i can find are 1000watts + at 4 ohms bridged.
So get the 1000W power amp and don't turn it up all the way
Really, if you get a second cab you might need the extra power. Never hurts to have too much power.
Unless you really need an extra 1 dB of headroom, you could also get a 600-W amp, of which there are plenty.
I know of two 800-850 watt power amps available: the Mackie M800 and the QSC RMX850. I'm sure there are others. Remember, though, that SPLs are measured on a logarithmic scale, which means, very roughly, that it takes ten times the watts to get twice the volume/headroom. A couple hundred watts really won't make much of a difference at this level, and there's always a volume knob.
SWR power 750
exactly 750W @ 4 ohm
