Use this amp for my custom made 3-way top cabs.This amp kicks butt!!!.Keep your level below clipping and you will have no problem .
I've had mine for over 3 years, using it every weekend in icky environments, without a hickup. I run it at 4 ohms a side, managing 2 monitor mixes. I've also ran it bridged @ 4 ohms to power a couple of 18" subs. Its never failed me. The only issue I've had is that one of my XLRs got bent. This occurred because it is very long and its jacks extend beyond even the longest amp racks. I had an xa900 and it wasn't as dependable, but this xa1600 is tough. I won't hesitate to buy a new one when I need it.
After years of cobbled together PA systems, I decided to put my own together (but on a budget). The Nady is driving two Peavey PA 215s in a band with a classic rock format. The first time we took it out was to the new minor league ball park to entertain the fans before the game. Ran a little over half way (4 ohms) people could hear us, clean, a block away but we were not "blowing away" the people walking in front of us. And it was 90+ degrees. And the Nady stayed cool and ran without a problem. So -plenty of clean power for an outdoor gig on a hot day. I'd recommend it to anyone on a budget and when I get a power amp to run the monitors, (we're still "cobbled together" on that) I'm going to get the Nady XA-900.
This is the power amp my band uses at all of our practices. We love it. It has never let us down, and it has never needed a break. We use it for hours on end with no problem. Sound is great, amount of sound is awesome, and no hiss, which is the greatest part. The output jacks are banana jacks, which is the only reason I gave features a 9. You just don't have too many banana cables laying around. But, I would suggest buying one of these for any application.
I've owned this amp for about 6 months now. Has not let me down. Hasn't given me any reason to think it ever will. When it arrived it was packed professionally. I had it racked and I've been using in stereo @ 4 ohms and I've never sent it a clipped signal. Every now then, at the tail end of a gig, I'll crank it up right before the last set, just to see if I can blow something up. Nope. Very reliable. I even bridged it once and sent 4 ohms of extremely high level bass to my subs (I was testing the subs) and it never got warm. Couldn't be much happier.
