    I recently got an SWR 4004 Head and a Tech21 RBI Rackmount. I realized that I could have gotten a powerful poweramp for the same price as the SWR Head, so I'm thinking of returning the head and exchanging it for a more powerful poweramp. Should I do this?

    For what you pay for with the Workingman's heads, you don't get alot. You already have a kickass preamp, why spend money on another inferior preamp with a mediocre poweramp? Now get yo' booty back to that store and I wanna see you walk out with a high powered QSC!

    I'm thinking of getting a Peavey PV1500 poweramp. I also get 200$ back from a tradein with Musicians Friend. Win win situation. Better tone, much louder (poweramp can go up to 500-1000W), 200$ back (Which will go towards a bigger cab), and personal satisfaction :).

    If weight isn't a concern, look at the RMX series from QSC. Lots of power for little bucks.
