Power Amp Advice

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys and Gals,

I have recently got my mits on a Bass Pod XT Pro, which I am planning on using live into a poweramp, eventually into a Tech ND410 but for the time being into a Hartke 410XL.

I need a suitable power amp that will allow me to run into an 8ohm cab, and when i get the cash together to get the Tech 410, ill be looking at 2 x 8ohm cabs, thus running at 4 ohms total.

I have a budet of around £200-£400, what can you suggest?

Cheers

Luke

Mackie make reliable p/amps. They do a budget line called "Juice", made by Tapco. Very good value and they go down to 2 OHMS IIRC.

Both ranges available from Thomann.

This falls right in the middle of your budget.

400 Watts into 4 Ohms, 230W into 8 Ohms stereo or 800W into 8 Ohms mono bridged

They're very very light.

I used to own one and didn't rate it - it didn't seem to do much through my SWR Triads, but in hindsight, I think that was more a shortcoming of the cabs which seemed very voiced towards an SWR amp and flapped through anything else.

Yamaha P5000 or P7000 from SoundsLive mate. For a really flexible amp with more connections and functions, you can't go wrong. They are only 12Kg too, which makes them a very light non D-Class.

I highly recommend the crossover on it as you can filter out everything below what your cabinet cant produce.. thus giving you far more volume and less speaker 'farting'.

I'd still have mine if powersoft hadn't landed on my GAS-o-meter!!

Also the Yamahas Dood suggested look great

P7000s in the above link new for £410

P2500s in sounds live new for £233! It does 1.3Kw bridged into 4 ohms. Whether that is RMS is not clear though.
