    I'm thinking about the Stereo 800 on bassgear.com to go with my new Studio 220 which is the bomb. What *is* the power rating for the Sterero 800, is anybody using one, and should I just go ahead and get a cheapish new power amp instead?

  2. I believe the specs are
    350W per side at 4 ohms
    400 W per side at 2 ohms
    700 W bridged at 8 ohms
    800 W bridged at 4 ohms

    I've used one in the past. Good amp but for similar $$ you could pick up a used QSC PLX1602 (for around $400 on ebay). The QSCs have more features too (output limiting and hi pass filters to limit speaker cone excursion). Something to think about...
