    Carver, The Cube?

    http://cls.audiogon.com/cgi-bin/cls....ran&1147493795

    I saw this amp on Audiogon. Sounds like a good price to me although the seller has no feedback and says the amp weighs 5 pounds. Does anyone have experience with this amp? As I recall, they were pretty desirable in their day, especially a pair bridged? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Most of those I ever saw suffered fire damage. (From the inside....)

    Great idea, bad results, I wouldn't hook my JBL's up to one of those.

    No replacement for cubic inches

    It's like trying to put a supercharged, nitrous, overbored overhyped crapola 1.8L Honda (Lawnmower) up against a 426 Hemi in the 1/4 mile. A hemi would smoke the Honda even if it was towing a Honda that had no wheels.

    Sorry, I like my Motors large, my Beer cold and my TV Loud.
