    my buddy who works for u.s. music sez they've taken a few months off of making them (800's) to try and get the new 1205 amp out. also, bridging a wt-800 into 4 ohms gives you 1000 watts... sweet...

    I e-mailed Eden about mine because it says 1200 watts on the back of it, but it says bridge only @ 8 ohms. I am hoping that is is a new one, then selling it will much easier.

    I bought it from American Musical Supply.
     
  4. The older WT-800's don't do well bridged into a 4 ohm load, you're asking for trouble, they will run too hot. Eden has ok'd the usage of the older wt-800's with eden's 610 cab, which is a 6 ohm cab. The minimum impedence that the amp is rated at will be right by the banana/speakon speaker output. The 1200 watts is a voltage rating and has nothing to do with wattage or power of the amp itself.
    You can go to Eden electronics forum and there will be a bunch of info in this topic.

    Then I may just have to buy the 1205 if it comes out first!

    I'm excited about the new amps, but I really wish these guys wouldnt publish new specs & new gear on their site when the release dates are months off & whenever I call them for a date I get a different answer.

    I love the dual preamp config on the 1205 ... and all that good clean eden power. Sounds like a winner!
