Fortunatly i only paid £100 for it, Giles (i think) did me a deal on it due to it not being complete (not having the 32A passthrough)

Was quite some time ago

Some nice gear in this thread Clap.

Tweeter-Box - i see that you have a C-Mark 2650 in your rack, i have two of those but they're real sods to mount as the rack holes on the amps don't seem to line-up with the holes in any of the cases i use. Did you find yours lined up ok?
Sorry to hijack the thread peeps.

ah yes, the c-mark amp hole problem..
i had that too, on a shoestring budget system we put together for someone.. as far as the Chinese import amps go.. the c-marks aren't too bad if treated with care...just don't pack the punch certain uk made amps beginning with 'm' do ;)

Glad it's not just me that's having/had this problem LOL.

I use them to run 2 pairs of dual 15" reflex boxes (Kappa LF loaded) and they're fine for my needs. I don't plan on giving them too much hammer - i'm usually pretty careful with clipping etc.
 
As for the 'M' amps i have a UKP 1000 which i use for monitoring. Sounds great. I lost a channel on it a few years ago so i took it to my local repair shop. They usually just tell me to get a replacement amp and don't seem that keen on fixing the problem. However, with the UKP 1000 they were happy to work on it (replaced all the caps on one side) and it's been fine ever since.
 
I'll post some pics of my amp rack here but only if everyone promises to play nice Embarrassed

This is my contribution. Nothing spectacular here i'm afraid, but it's all i can afford Cry
 
Top to bottom:
Peavey CS1200x (Mid/Tops)
Ibanez graphic
Berry Sonic Maximiser
Alesis 3630 Comp / Limiter
Peavey X-Over
Berry Comp / Limiter (Monitors)
Matrix UKP 1000 (Monitors)
2 x C-Mark MR 2650
 
Works well for me at the moment - although i'm constantly upgrading as funds allow.
It runs 4 of my 2x15 reflex boxes and 2 pairs of JBL mid/tops (M330 & M350).
 
I have another smaller rack which runs my OHM system - but i'll be flogging that soon. Next year i'm going to try and get another Matrix for the mid/tops to replace the ageing (but very reliable CS1200x).
