Rack Mounted Power Amp Wanted

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm looking for a PA amp, rack mounted 1400w or above. I already have a mixing desk, so I'd prefer just the amp as opposed to a powered mixer doo-dah thingy.

Cash waiting.

PM please

Not yet secured. Currently looking at a few - Probably 8ohms

Edit : And the startled face that inadvertantly appeared, sums me up perfectly. I have shyed away from the PA side of things in the past, so I'm in over my head here.

Get the speakers first.

If you get a 1400W into 8 amp and run a 4 ohm cab on it there's a fair chance you'll toast the speakers/x-over with the extra power unless you're very careful.

If get a 1400W into 4 amp and try to run an 8 ohm speaker you'll be hideously underpowered and may well toast the speakers trying to get the amp to over-perform and going into clip.

I don't think I've ever seen a power amp with an impedance selector, only backline amps.
