Must at least be 1200 watts, other than that there are no limits.
I am looking at the QSC PLX3402, any thoughts?
The PLX 1202 is 1200 watts and about $400 less than the PLX 3402. I only mention this because of your interest in a 1200 watt amp. The RMX 1450 would work for you as well for less money and more weight.
Anyway, I think you'll have a hard time finding somebody who wouldn't recommend QSC but anything is possible.
The above mentioned Crest CA9 seems to be hailed as the holy grail of bass rig power amps by those with more money than I have. I would look into that if you can.
that was an at least 1200 watts, I would like to be able to run both sides at near that now that I think about it. Thats why I mentioned such a model.
I think you'll enjoy any QSC you buy.
Crest CA12. 1200 watts per side into 4 ohms.
What are you going to be doing with this monster? Subs in a club?
Actually, you can often find them used for around $500.
Well that's in my league. I can see one in MY future!
Crown MA 2402 = big daddy of poweramps....
Carvin dcm1500 is $399 brand new.
well, I'll put a plug in for stewart world 1.2, 1200w bridged into4, 350x2 into 4 stereo, 1 rack space, 11 LBS, I paid $600 new, I like it...
couldnt have said it better myself.
I'd snag a GBE 1200. Conservatively rated, killer tone, outstanding service from Genz-Benz.
I've had good experiences with Peavey DPC-1400X, QSC PLX series - enough that I'm not looking for any lead sled and actually have been settled in for a number of years, or the Carvin DCM series.
Anything from AB -
-Cheap as hell (you can find a 1700 watt bridged/1100 watts per channel model for $100)
-Robust as all hell - thick steel chassis
-Reliable - mine has never overheated nor shut down
-They weigh 25-35 lbs
-some have loud fans
I'm looking hard at the new Crown 2000XTi & 4000XTi myself.
Fan is loud, but very light and loads of power.
I should add that if weight is a big factor, I prefer the sound of the Stewart World 2.1.
I've had good success with the Carvin DCM series amp for a couple of years now....good value and sound.
