Those of you who have blown amp, drivers, trying to get 2kwpc @ 4 ohm, after believing hearsay.

Please comment here, people are still doing this.

Proline, as well as all Thomann amps, has only a simple & cheap peak stop limiter that is rubbish. Lot of DC and square wave coming out when it clips. It put stress on the amp (the bipolar transistors dont like it) and on speakers. You get what you pay for...

What people recommend in here with the proline is bridge it to drivge only two PD.1850, then you have plenty of headroom. But then for 4 scoops you'd still need two prolines, and then can get a high end amp like the void for the same price.

I ran 4 v18 loaded scoops for 3 years off a proline with no problems and would have people commenting on how loud the scoops were all the time. They were used nearly every weekend for 5-24 hours at a time.the drivers and amp were sold, still fully functional. Always limited off my ultradrive

I read forums, deduced it would be fine, blew 4 drivers, regretted even trying. Now face £££ recone bill and need to get an inf8 instead. Just dont want someone to make my mistake (again)

also bought the proline new for £550 and wont be able to sell it for anything less than £350 but it will make a solid kick amp.

If you do use it buy an inline attenuator (-10 or -15dB) to make sure the limiter is catching peaks.

Do you have test figures stating 2000w @ 4 ohms, for 40-60hz?

What's your point? Imo they're good amps if you're careful. They don't have crazy power but pump enough juice for bass

IMHO, great in 8 ohm stereo, 4 ohm bridge, OK in 4 ohm stereo, but not enough to fully drive 2x 1kw drivers per channel, with bass heavy material.
