Power amp recommendations

Recommended Posts

I'm running an Ampeg SVP PRO preamp and an Amp B410HLF cabinet - both of which I love the sound of, but my current power amp (Laney SP300) is only delivering 150W (per side) into my cabinet, and as my cab is 4Ω I can't use the 'Bridge' mode - which would deliver all 300W to a single channel but expects an 8Ω load. 

What do other BCers use in their separate pre/power setups?

 

Go!

I use a Crown xls 1502 power amp fed from a BBE pre... That puts 1550W bridged into a 4ohm load. Very clean and reasonably priced - with the 2nd LED just about flickering I can drown out guitar and drums!

eBay is your friend. Any reasonable used PA power amp will deliver bridged into a 4 ohm load. Peavey, Crown and QSC are all reliable choices. Avoid El Cheapos. They generally have crummy power supplies and inadequate protection circuitry and don't like low impedance loads.
