power amps

  1. what power amps woudl complement an ashdown MAG 210 T200 and a MAG 115 200? Both are 8 ohm cabs.
    i cant seem to find a power amp that goes that low.

  2. what about the mag head from ashdown? i've pretty much decided on that + the two cabs mentioned...
    MAG 115 specs:
    Configuration-1 x 15"
    Power Handling-150W continuous, 250W programme
    Impedance-8 Ohms
    Frequency Response-37Hz - 2kHz
    SPL-98dB 1W @ 1m

    MAG 210 Specs:
    Configuration-2 x 10" + tweeter
    Power Handling-200W continuous, 300W programme
    Impedance-8 Ohms
    Frequency Response-60Hz - 20kHz
    SPL-98dB 1W @ 1m

    MAG 250 Head specs:
    Output-1-channel MOSFET
    Output Power-306W RMS, 1000W peak
    Output Impedance-4 Ohms

    think that combo would work good and sound good?

    Hey, any poweramp can drive 2 8 ohm cabs,
  4. somem power amps only go 8ohms into bridged. but thats only on cheaper poweramps

    hmmm, you have bunch of very good poweramps which can be bridged only on 8 ohms.

    the full ashdown rig would rock. I am a fan of Eden, myself, but I'm just spoiled. Me and Munji(what an eden fan). Pete, you too, lots of Eden. Anyways, the ashdown rig will give you ashdown sound, and the power will be a non-issue, unless you clip everything somehow and send a DC spike or something. You'll be fine! I mix cabs myself, but as I said, I'm an eden fan. it's the king cab of my rig.
  7. Carvin DCM1000 $359.99
    225W 8ohms
    350W 4ohms

    700 8ohms Bridged
    1000W 4ohms Bridged
  8. another vote for the carvin dcm1000. I just (yesterday) picked up a workingman's rig (210 + 115) those cabinets are 200w rms, I might go with that carvin amp or possibly the dcm1500 for this setup also.

    carvin made a dcm750t that put out 175w @ 8 ohms per channel, nice amp with eq on both channels (I have one) but they don't make it anymore..alot of people recommend using more wattage then needed for headroom.
  9. QSC PLX1202-1602
    QSC RMX830-1450
    CARVIN DCM1000

    The QSC RMX line is good inexpensive reliable (heavy) power. The Carvin is a little lighter with some really nice features. (1/4, binding post, and speakon outputs with a dedicated speakon for bridging. Good looking smooth operating design). The QSC PLX is the best of the bunch, (light, advanced design offering lots of clean power) A little pricey but not outrageous.

    I can say with absolute confidence that any of the above-mentioned amps will more than do the job.
