    I think I have asked this question before, but I did not get a great response.

    Ok. I bought an avatar 4x10 and 1x15, and I dont have a head yet. What are your suggestions. How much power do I need to run the cabs.

    I was thinking of the hartke 3500. In fact, I bought the hartke 3500 off of www.samash.com and they sent me a power amp by accident. So I dont have a head and now I am even more confused . ( Price range is around 450 $ maybe 500)

    if you are going the hartke route, i'd go for the 7000. it'll be more than you'll ever need for most gigs.

    What kind of power amp did they send you? You could get a REAL good preamp for the $450.

    well they sent me a samson 5000 ( but I think it was opnly 350 wats or sumthin)

    If I were going to go the power amp preamp rought, I would return it and get a different power amp, maybe a yamaha rmx1450 for like 400$. But then I would have to buy the pre wich would be around 850 bucks total. And that is way over my budget.

    I have a Hartke 3500 and I really love it. Very versatile and powerful. But as the other guy said, if you can buy the 7000 go for it. You'll have and awesome amp with power for any ocassion.

    Luck !
