    I started thinking of adding a power poweramp to my Genz Benz GBE600. I've never owned one, so I'm asking you what kind of poweramps are you using? What about Mackies?

    Thanks.
     
  2. I use a QSC PLX 1202. I've heard good things about Mackie. The only negative is their weight.

    I had considered Mackie, but went with the QSC PLX series instead (model 3002). You will probably find a number of bass players using the PLX series amps. They sound great, are very reliable, and are lightweight and back friendly!:D

    That would be my recommendation, anyway.

    I used to use a Carvin DCM2000 power amp (worked fine) but eventually swapped it out for a used QSC PLX 3002. You can't go wrong with a PLX, they are VERY light, only two rack spaces, and have filtering options most others don't have. Super reliable as well.

    It's hard to beat the QSC's quality and weight factor......great amps!
