    Cool. w/d/w is so much fun. My buddy had a setup like that and playing through it was incredible. The ping pong delay effect is awesome. If you have any wiring questions, go over to www.hugeracksinc.com. Lots of GREAT advice over there.

    I see a block 5150 in there...nice. I'm sure it's just hyped in my memory, but I played a beat up block logo 5150 years ago in Baltimore that was one of the best gain sounds I can remember hearing live. Should've bought it on the spot, but I was on vacation!

    Anyway, what cabs are you going to run it through?

    How open-minded do I have to be before my brains start spilling out?

    Nice!!!

    Ha--you just need Suhr or Bruce to mod your amp and you'll have covered just about everyone!

    That's going to be a great setup. Loud as heck, too.

    Yup. I find that 6 is the sweet spot. Most people think these amps sound like garbage because for 1, a lot idiots scoop the mids raise the pres to 10 and put the pre gain at 10 and it sounds terrible, and 2, many people try playing them at 1 and 2. 1 and 2 on the post gain doesn't sound that good, but at 5 and 6, the power tubes start coming a live and it sounds great. It tightens the bottom end right up.

    for the record, that was a joke. I mentioned them since your rack build is a culmination of the Huge Racks all-stars.

    Remember, clips when yer done, please.

    thx
