    Knowing this is designed more for home theater primarily, I still had to snag it up, due to a good price. Is there anything you guys can tell me that makes a difference? Obvoiusly, I will need to get a connector to run my input into an XLR, but I am unsure of anything else. Here are the specs........any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a pair of the Stewart PA-1000's which is the same amp with different inputs. Mine has 1/4" and XLR.

    These are fine amps, however, some bassists have had problems with them shutting down on high temp if you work them hard bridged into a 4 ohm load.

    My 410 is an 8 ohm and I have never had a problem.

    Thanks Chuck!

    I am considering using a fan mounted into the rack, as I will be pushing a 4 ohm load. What is a fair price on one of these units?

    Anyone else experienced in these?
