        A nice medium duty amp suitable for many different purposes . Could be used in larger places if multiple units are connected or if you split the sound with crossovers with seperate amps for each group . These amps worked great with large speakers and produced good sound at high levels . For major events , I would go to something heavier-duty , however .

        I have not been able to use this unit as I do not have or use Speakon connectors and the advertisment for and the owners manual say the speaker outputs are BOTH Speakon or 1/4", NOT TRUE, they appear to be Speakon only as I could not plug my 1/4" soeaker plug into the Speakon jacks. I'm still waiting for a response on this problem from Musicians Friend's Customer Service department 8 days later!

          Comments about Gem Sound XPS 1000 Power Amplifier:

          We had maxed out our other 8800 watts and still had two more cabinets to power up. Although these speakers were "additional" and not really a "must" for our system, we figured...we got 'em...let's use 'em. This amp is just what we needed to push the two 15s with horns. I couldn't be happier with this purchase!

            I was pleasently suprised with this amp . It seems to meet all of the expectations of a much more expensive unit made by high end names . I tried it with various combinations of equipment and drove it hard with no problems and excellent sound resulting . This is an excellent amp for the price offered !

              I bought this amp to go with a Bheringer mixing board and a Kustom KPC 10" moniter. This thing is rocking. I am training to become a studio tech, and am a member in a number of groups. such as a live musician in local classical groups and my school does a battle of the bands every year. i was looking online and i couldn't believe what i was getting. when it first got to my house i pluged it in and i have been using it ever sience. this thing really gives you an amazing and clean sound.

              i am new to power amps and any pa stuff for that matter. i worked this passed winter and built my own pa rig.i have 2 kustom 115s and a kustom 200 watt powered mixer and then this. buying this makees it so my speakers arent under powered. this is plenty of power for just about any gig, djing or a concert. i definetly made a smart buy going with this. it ran continuously for about 3 hours and was still very cool. thanks to a convinient fan. also on the vents there is a convineint dust screen. i would definetly buy this!
