Go check out the Genesis 1.1 If you have six digits to blow on speakers, you can have the biggest, loudest, baddest, and most accurate loudspeaker possibly in exsistance....well, make it a 4-piece set...separate speaker for the mid/high array and another cabinet for the woofer array....per channel.

I'd rather get enough OT this month to get some Magnepan MMGs...those are at least an obtainable dream

That's not an amp. That's an armoire.

That is crazy. I honestly can't imagine ever playing on something that huge. You would blow your ****ing eardrums out! But then again, I've always favored my acoustic over electric.

It's kinda like the giant subwoofer I saw at a small metal concert....6 18" 500w woofers in a multi-tuned bandpass enclosure. It took 4 dollies, a ramp, and 5 people to get it on stage....but my god did it hit.

I think that was the first time I ever felt concrete walls shake like that.

Actually, the amp or head unit (the box on top) isn't really that big. Just a hell big speaker cabinet

it's almost pointless if you're going through a PA system. but it does look kinda cool.

"It is (2) 300 watt all tube SVTs bridged together with one preamp. So you have a 600 all tube head into a 36x10 cab. Everything is functional on this and it's the second one in existence. The first one is at the Guitar Center in Hollywood.
How does it sound? No one knows for sure because you have to be about 100 yards away to hear the full sound wave. They said the entire rig weighs in at about 2500lbs."

this is what it said under the picture.
