    I just wanted to say that i have decided on the Aguilar Pre. I am Meeting the seller this weekend. I hope that everything runs smoothly :p . I am looking into getting a QSC poweramp to compliment it. Ohhhhh, I cant wait. An Aguilar Pre, a QSC poweramp, and an Epifani cab :D . Sweetness! Thanks alot for all the opinions and input that everyone put into helping me make my decision. I appreciate it. Later. :bassist: Michael

    Hey all, one more question...i got a really good deal on a RMX 2450 poweramp. I am guessing this thing is waaaaay to powerful to hook up to a single Epifani cab (old one with horizontal speaker set up).Can anyone clarify this quickly? thanks!
    Michael :p

    Should be fine as long as you use your ears and your Clip Limiter on the RMX. When the cab begins to sound distressed, it is; back off.

    I'm not specifically familiar with pushing Epi's very hard, but most speakers will give an audible sense of stress when pushed too hard.

    Some Epi owner's might want to chime in here.

    Adrian Garcia uses the EBS pre-amp. Why don't you ask him about it. I talked with him a bit about EBS, and he really likes the tone.

    Hey adrian, well right now i am going for the Aggie pre qsc setup. If for some reason stuff doesnt work out when buying the pre then i will get the EBS. All the feedback i had on them is that they are amazing but are complicated when dialling in E.Q. and simplicity is very big for me. :D

    I looked at Glockenklang and for some reason it just doesnt appeal to me ;)
