So I picked up one of these wee little buggers a while back as a splurge kind of gear purchase. Was actually looking for a small combo but didn't like any of the units I played and they had this thing in stock. I played it and it smoked most of the small combos I played. So I went for it and brought it home. I got a deal as the cab has some scratches, they knocked off 120 bucks from the entire rig. Been playing it a while but haven't had a chance to use it in a band context until earlier this week and using it at church tomorrow with a rehearsal today. I cant believe I was getting repeated requests to turn down. I couldn't believe how loud it truly was with a band. So this little guy I would say is rated conservatively as its rated 130 watts into an 8 ohm load. There definitely is a sweet spot for clean headroom on the input gain depending of the output level of the bass. So I set it so the gain just turns on the orange light when I really slam it and I dime the master then set my L1500 at half way on the volume (as its has a really stinking hot signal). Anyway I thought Id just pass it along was really happy with my tone this morning. Also was using the Mesa Subway DI going thru to the amp and the preamp out XLR to house so I could control my level to the console and get the correct level back to Aviom. I actually was getting a good loud but not overdriven level back to the my ears, it was heaven. So needless to say I was a happy camper.
