    I have own this unit since 2002. Not one bit of trouble for what it was designed to do. It is good for small gigs. I mainly used it for a KeyBoard 's amp now, along with a JBL 150 watt monitor. Wish I owned a 808, but love this 406's.

    Traded in for a Yamaha Power Head

    By Mike Dollins-ouM6l

    from La Mesa, CA

    This unit stopped in the middle of a gig. That was a first for me. I liked them when the were Tapco, and their prices were fair. I don't think they're a little pricy for the product value now.

    Great small gig Pa amp

    By CLbandman

    from Hampstead, Maryland

    For such a small, very portable power amp, and the great FX it offers, for my money this is simply the best. It's perfect for small venue gigs. I never had a problem with this unit, and it's very dependable.

    This is only a 250 watt amp! 500 watt is false!

    By Steve-7tdts

    from Riverside, CA

    Check the specs at Mackie.com, this amp is only 125 watt x 125 watt (total 250 watt) for 8 ohm speakers--which is what most speakers are. To get 250 watt x 250 watt (500 watts total), you have to buy 2 ohm speakers, which nobody makes. Even with 4 ohm speakers, you'll only get 200 watts x 200 watts (400 watts total), but most 4 ohm cabinets are a minimum of 500 watts each, which this amp would underpower. Bottom line, this powered amp is not compatible with today's speaker market. 500 watts @ 2 ohms is deceptive advertising! I recommending buying something else that is higher wattage at 4 or 8 ohms. Believe me, I can't find speakers for my Mackie PPM now. Don't make the same mistake.

    It's a great pratice amp, but not for gigs..

    The 406M seems a little underpowered for anything more then praticing in a basement. It sounds great for the size, just not enough power only being 125watts @ 8 ohms. I would recommend the 808, its much more powerful.

    Good value

    By Paul-TfHik

    from Mountain View, CA

    I was concerned about the limited power but our band only uses the mixer for vocals and sax, and for that setup (with efficient speakers) the power is sufficient, even for outdoor gigs. The 9 band EQ makes our mains and monitors sound great and completely eliminates feedback (once we checked which bands were prone to feedback). Favorite features: gain control and peak LEDs for each channel, main and monitor output LED graphs, amp compressor, break switch, separate volume and input for CD/ipod player. Quirks: the 3 band channel EQ only affects the main mix, not the monitor mix. Monitor 9 band EQ only works with monitor mix. Heavy heatsink (quiet fan would be better). Can chose echo or reverb, not both. Monitor effects only work for non-zero main volume. Overall, I am really pleased with this mixer- should have bought it years ago.
