    hey i was just wondering what the best and most cost efficient way to add wattage to my rig would be. i have too much cab and not enough head.(can never get enough of that)

    Just be sure you have access to 2 independent AC circuits wherever you go with that thing!

    Again, Carvin. DCM 600?
  5. Used QSC RMX 850's are only about $200 - $250 on eBay.

    What the guy with the big chin said ;)

    Actually 2000 watts may be excessive.. but 600 watts may leave you wanting more. i would suggest getting a DCM1000. what kind of cab(s) are you using?

    [edit] you could always get the DCM1500, i did and I like it :)

    Flip the button to the "On" position.

    "best" and "most cost efficient" don't always coincide.

    i'd spend a little extra and get a qsc instead of a carvin.
