Any idea if this is the big boy, or the middle brother?

I'm guessing it's the big one, considering the the power rating is nearly perfectly matched to the DNS410 cabs.
DNA 1350 and 410-4: Why settle for really good tone when you can have the best?

You know, that would be SCARY...It would be COOL, but Scary. Perfect way to run a 410 and perhaps 2 x 12's, or just two 410's

The thing is to be overpowered but not have to use it...
Think about all evenings with lousy tone, due to an amp at clipping level. 1200 Watts can never be too much. You can only play too loud, and that is stupid.

Overkill is the way to go... :naughty: :naughty: :naughty:

:drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: Great looking little combination,Glad it was pictured with the DNS112.
Seriously thinking of getting a couple and the Helix to...Well, not to replace my 2-112xlt's and wtx500 or wtx260
But take their place on the stage at my church gig,and bring the other mentioned rig home. :think: :think: :think:
My church and band mates would hate me,but it would be soooo much fun. :twisted: :twisted: :D

Yes, the escalation factor must be considered...then buy them anyway. :D For half my gigs this summer, I brought just one DNS-112N (6-piece band, golf course patio for 150-200 people) and it slammed. Why? The DNA cabs break in nicely, yielding some extra low end extension according to David. When I used a pair (underpowered by an Eden WT405), 810 and 610 users were transfixed all evening at how this deceptively small rig was kicking butt at an outdoor gig with the ambient noise of a rodeo outside the tent. Seriously good! Deliciously better! :dance:

jmcgliss, That is one sweet looking Bass. :whistle: It brings to mind some of the late 60's era muscle cars. Power and a bit of chrome. What a set up.
