What Solid State rackmount rig would compare to Mesa Triple Rec
I have a Mesa Boogie triple rectifier, I need that extra chunk when playing palm muted at very high distortion levels.
I have an old Fender Solid State preamp (M-80) and I need a powerful poweramp to power two 300watts 4x12 (one at 4 ohm or 16 ohm and second at 16 ohm). I want to make it sound as loud ( I like the tone of the distortion)
I don't want the Rocktron Velocity 300 as it's not powerful enough for me needs, I was thinking about something more like 1500 watts. Since Solid State sounds a lot less loud than Tube, I figue 150 watts tube would be at least 1000 watts Solid State.
Yes? No? Maybe? The old Carvin DCM1500 I could get for $250. I put a 10 band Eq to cut annoying frequencies and boost the bass and I assume it will work.
