So,after a long search for a used F-1X I finally found one on flea bay at a decent buy it now price($479.)and I'm chomping at the bit for it to arrive.This will pair with my SF-2 which has been my preamp for quite sometime.
So some experimenting is in order.
Currently the SF-2 is running in stereo mode with the low end being controlled in channel 1(high pass mode)and the highs controlled in channel 2(low pass mode)being fed into a Crown xTI 1000 amp and dumping into a Eden D4x10XLT.
I hope to maintain this type of control.
Any suggestions would be very welcome at this point and I can't wait for it to get here.
The words from Flounder from Animal House comes to mind,"Oh boy.Is this great".

Wow and WOW.I thought my rig sounded quite good before but now....holy smokes.As you can probably tell,my F-1X arrived today and I could not be more pleased with the sound and complete tone control of my amp.Can't wait to gig with it.

I have checked out many preamp and signal processing alternatives from other manufacturers and and the Alembic SF-2 and either the F-2B or F-1X in combination remains my top pick. Congratulations.

After a few gigs with the newly added F-1X,I can't understand for the life of me why I waited so long to add this to my rig.Along with the SF-2,it takes alot of the frustration out when setting up for different sounding rooms.My next quest is to find a great sounding 2x10 to slap on top of the David Eden D410XLT.I would love to go with an Eden D210XLT if I could find one made before David Eden sold the company.My GAS continues.

I too, get great pleasure/tone from my F-1X/SF-2, QSC combination. I suggest you pair your 410 with a single 15, an EVM-15L or an Eminence 3015, instead of a 2x10. It's delicious.
