    What is RMS Handling and Program Handling? I am looking at amps, and it says 600 RMS and 1200 Program Handling. So is the amp 600 or 1200 watts? thanks, _-soto-_

    The 600w is what you should really be looking at. That's how much power the cabinet can handle continuously. Program handling basically means that say you accidently sent around 1200 watts to the cab for a second or so, it should still work afterwards.

    thanks man, that helps me a hell of a lot, 600 watts will be perfect (in the middle of 400 and 800 :)) anyway, thanks man... _-soto-_ k
