    You can get some great deals on Genz-Benz right now. Great power and sound, and small size.

    Just be sure to check sensitivity and if the output needs a "bridged mono" connection to get full horsepower. I'm running a Crown XLS1000. It was cheap and has HPF as an option. There are several other good options out there right now. Crest, Peavey, Carvin, etc.

    I just got a Crest Por-lite 2 and so far so good. When I was shopping around, it seemed to fit the bill in terms of cost vs weight vs features vs all the other stuff.
