: I purchased an Ampeg bass cabinet. It sounds great, can handle up to 600 watts RMS, and can be run in a biamped mode as long as you don't exceed the power handling limits of the cabs specific speakers and drivers. The literature with the cab also states that the cab can handle 1200 watts in "program mode" but does not explain what this means. Anyone have an idea what this is about? I've tried to e-mail Ampeg off their web site, but could not find an address.

I'm not sure about this, I'd have to see your lit, but NOrmally, an amp/ speaker combo has its "program" wattage, which is the average wattage of the signal being put out by the amp, and then the cab has a peak signal handling, which very often is about double the program handling. This is most likley what it means by 1200 watts in "Program Mode", but you should check
