Maybe worth looking at other amps now, much has come out since Naphon.

Also to be honest, don't expect much below 50hz, with 1850 horns, regardless of amps, and how many cabs are in a stack,

PDs can deliver some nice warm notes but the naphon sounds horrible and wont reproduce any of them. One of the worst amps ive bought.
