I have one that has never been cleaned/serviced all these years & still going strong. U making me start to fret!

You don't need to be afraid. It doesn't mean that something bad will happen to your amplifier. Well, don't fix something that ain't broken Wink. If that bothers you, take it to a service for dust cleaning.

Edit: *bumpity bump* does someone have a service manual for Ecler DPA 1400?

these were the ancestors of the DPA series
I Have't used PAM series as they were already discontinued in 2005 when we started selling them
but the DPA models were built like a tank

we have a lot of installs with DPA Amps running in bridge mono configuration runing 4 ohm subs for 7 years now , none have failed so far. Most of them are used every night in anger with no cleaning since we installed them (cheap managers)

i see. no wonder it doesnt like going down to 2 ohms if your effectively running each channel permanently bridged. not many amps would cope with 2 ohms bridged.

i get the impression they're pretty power hungry too.

they certainly are heavy , and i must admit i did find them a little gutless on bass which is why i started this thread, i wondered if other people had found this.

i chatted to my mate who i borrowed a couple off and owns several of these. a channel has gone down on two of his and another 2 have died completely. so im thinking they're not the greatest amps.
