Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Bought this from zZounds about a year ago to power my bass guitar rig. Using an Eden preamp DI pedal, into this crown power amp, Bridged mode, 1100 watts @ 4 ohms, into my Ampeg SVT HLF 410. Also hooked up in stereo to see how it would power 2 svt cabs. Sounds great either way! This amp is a beast! Love this amp! Haven't had one problem with it. Can't beat the price either!
