    Comments about Mackie FRS-1700 1660-Watt 2-channel Lightweight Power Amplifier:

    This particular amplifer is an evolution of the FR1400 which I own. There is no better amplifer for the money. Sure, you could get this level of sound from a top end Crown, but you're going to be forking over hundreds more!

    Mackie makes some of the best amplifers on the market!
