Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I use (2) of these CS4000s to power (4) QW-4F cabinets one cabinet per side of each amp pushing a 4 ohm load for mids and highs on top of a pair of QW-218s powered by (1) CS4080 for the lows with a VSX-26 for DSP system management. The sound is clean and punchy with tons of headroom. I have been using this series of Peavey CS amps including (2) CS800x4 amps that I use for monitors for the past 8 years without any issues with any of the amps. They are heavy but built to last!
