I will ALWAYS play and endorse Crate. They have been good to me over the years and would be hard pressed to find a replacement.
I have ALWAYS used Crate amps and they have NEVER let me down. I currently run one head through two cabs and the stock tones this amp comes with are nothing short of great. Truthfully, I get my distortion from a Boss ME-20 floor pedal and tweaked the eq, shaping, and volume on that. THEN adjust the eq and volume on the head. If you feel this amp isnt loud enough, try adjusting the volume on your pedal, processor, etc, and then add volume on the head. not only will you keep your tone but you will gain more volume as well.
I do also use the clean channel and add some chorus and as usal, solid-state clean tones are the best.
Ease of Use
Like I said, I shpae my tone initially from my floor processor, THEN from the head.
Simply put, the head is made for the cab and the cab is made for the head. DO NOT try and put a tube head through the cab because it will be too much for the speakers to handle.
I bought the whole half stack for $500 at my local and an additional cab for $300 as well.
Manufacturer Support
I have yet to need ANY support with this setup and I have been playing through it for over 2 years.
The Wow Factor
I have always received compliments about my set up and the tone that I get so that says alot.
