    dang,

    that price to wattage ratio is both incredibly impressive and yet, scary at the same time.

    I think even bassists who use silly ridiculous wattage will agree that this is seriously silly ridiculous wattage. That kind of wattage is for PA's. I've not big into the Behringer by any means, but I've heard that they actually do decent power amps. I doubt I'll be seeing it at any arena shows I do, though ;)
     
  5. here's what i wanna know

    how many people on here actually use 3600 watts?
     
  6. You know....seeing these monsters makes me wonder how the hell we EVER got by (back in the day) with 100-300 mere mortal watts of power......:D

    The only bassists who could possibly find a use for it are either running two Basson 810's or they're playing in doom bands ;)

    "I had the volume down to half... that means it should have only been putting out 1800 watts into my GK 4x10. This sucks!! I'm going back to guitar and making my mom buy me an AC-30 reissue."

    How many cabs can even take that much power?
     
  17. "built in compressor & switchable limiter for DISTORTION free performance" - Wha??? 3600w is this for when U run it thru your 1x8'' cab????

    Why would I want a distortion free performance?

    I bet it would blow a little 1x8" pretty damn fast. Probably in one note.
