    I did a quick search, and didn't seem to find anything.

    I'm looking for suggestions on a single space power amp. I've blown my two space, and will be looking for a replacement. Power required is at least 400W. I'm familiar already with the Peavey DPC.

    Thanks!
     
  2. Check out the Stewart World Series. They seem to be pretty popular among bass players and there's alot of happy users here:

    Their two lower-power models (600 and 1.2) are both single rack space. Either one may be exactly what you're looking for, both meet your power requirements.

  3. There are some pretty enthusiastic endorsements here for the Soundtech PS802. A search for "ps802" will get you started.
     
  4. You could also check out the Soundtech PS802.
    However, it only bridges to 8Ohms. I didn't realize that
    until after I bought mine. I haven't needed to bridge yet,
    but once I get my Schroeder 1210, it may be a different story.
    Here's a ZZounds link:http://www.zzounds.com/item--STCPS802
    You can probably find it cheaper somewhere else.
    I think I paid around $450 for mine.

    Soundtech is a great poweramp for 1 8ohm cab or 2 4ohms. You may run into trouble if you want to drive 2 8ohms cabs. I think the stewart bridges to 4ohms

    Buy it - you wont regret it. The only problem is if you want to drive 2 high power 8 ohm cabs. It's great for 1 high power 8ohm cab (bridged) or for 2 mid power 4 ohm cabs

    the stewart sounds like a more flexible amp (bridge at 4 ohms?) but a bit heavier
