Comments/Description

Fairly solid build with metal housing. Decent sound. LED meters are helpful when trying to run down sound/connection problems. Output (75W) makes it versatile for use with exciters of several different powers (20W - 50W).

Spring loaded clips only for speaker connections are not as stable as posts or banana plug connectors, and can wear out over time with constant connecting/reconnecting. Weight (5lbs) is fine for longer term set-ups, but can be problematic for touring or traveling.

Matching Equipment

Pairs well with most 32mm exciters, sounded particularly good paired with the Dayton Audio DAEX32Q-8.

Has been used with the Clark Synthesis TST239 "Bass Shaker" (100W @4Ω). Works fine for low-volume for short periods, but not recommended for extended use, as it will put a strain on the amp.
