  1. I am considering purchasing this amp this summer, used. Can anyone give me some experience with this amp?

    Also what ohm config cabs would i need to get to 2ohms?

    I played this amp a while back but didnt really like it.
    To get 2 ohms you would need 2 4 ohm cabs or 4 8 ohm cabs OR 8 16 ohm cabs( highly unlikely)

    It all depends on how you want to run the cabs and how many outputs the head has. I cant remember how many it had but i would guess it is 2!

    I recently purchased the SUNN 1200s ,new ,about a month ago and am just scratching the surface with respect to its capabilities. So, its the best amp I've owned , tremendous power and tone, I am running it through a new Eden 410 XLT, 4 ohm for about 700 watts. There are ( 4) 1/4" jacks in the rear, you could run four 8 ohm cabinets to realize its full potential at 2 ohms. I got a great deal on it for $569.00 at Chuck Levins in Wheaton, MD.
