This works great with Alembic pres. The only catch is that it only has XLR inputs, but I would gladly build and include some 1/4" to XLR cables or whatever the buyer might require. Mogami cable and Neutrik cables.

It is absolutely sufficient clean power for any bass rig at 650 watts per channel into 8 ohms and it gets silly when bridged.
The DSP is pretty cool. I had presets for stereo, parallel mono and bridged mono as well as the guest preset (limiters set at -12db so that there's no way they'd blow up my speakers). There's Windows software that can program it, which at first I thought was a PITA, but the more I used it, the more I liked it. I can set up presets for the buyer, too. If you want to use it to biamp, there are crossover settings, eqs, limiters, etc.

I'm selling it because I lucked into a monster QSC for cheap which required considerable modification to use as a bass amp, so I wouldn't feel comfortable selling it as I'm not sure I'd trust it as much as I trust the Crown. I wouldn't want to piss any of you off. I'm going to miss the DSP, but with the baby on the way, one of them has to go.

As far as warranty is concerned:
"Crown International, 1718 West Mishawaka Road,
Elkhart, Indiana 46517-4095 U.S.A. warrants to
product, for a period of three (3) years from the
date of purchase by the original purchaser (the
“warranty period”) that the new Crown product is
free of defects in materials and workmanship. We
further warrant the new Crown product regardless
of the reason for failure, except as excluded in this

I think it's about a year old. I can look that up. I like that word: "subsequent."

$600 for my Alembic friends.

I can post pictures if needed, but it's in great shape.

Here's the mohawk with a much more skeptical expression.

Where is Xander's Alembic? Perhaps a "build record is available? That Mohawk rules, and I think he is the boss of the family with that stare.
