After a bunch of years of being lucky enough to play and or own a lot of the finest class D integrated head offerings (including some of the new batch of thousand plus watt class d heads) I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I was never happier with my sound then when I played through lead sleds like the crest CA9. Obviously lots of other variables, but the impact, feel and effortless depth of those amps is in my opinion undeniable. despite the size, I think I’m headed back in that direction, since my gig schleps are pretty easy these days, but I’m not quite sure I can strap it back into a 50 pound power amp. anyone have any suggestions for lightweight ultra high power PA style power amps that can hold a candle to the high watermark that was set by the CA9, Macrotech etc.?? I was never big on the PLX stuff, but I’m open to suggestions, thanks in advance! Also, I know "a watt is a watt" to many, and I'm not here for that debate, but suffice to say I respectfully disagree.
