    Good point!
    Picked it up today and it seeems very loud considering it's only 220 watts solid state.
    Any ideas as to where i can find a handbook for aa peavey series 400 bass head?

    I used to own Peavey gear from the era of the amp you just bought. Those amps were apparently not abuse tolerant as mine were always blowing up output transistors. At the time, I was totally clueless regarding electronics so I was handing the amps over to repair techs for service. They usually came back not properly repaired. Eventually I just gave them away having grown tired of repairing them. Be careful of speaker load. I think that's why I was blowing the amps up.

    By speaker load do you mean the ohm rating?
    It says it runs 220w at 2ohms so am i right in thinking that i won't blow it as lon as i don't go below (???) 2ohms?
