    So i've decided to buy an Axe FX but want to use my 2x12 avatar cab w/modeling speakers to go with it. I don't plan on gigging with this rig so i don't need a lot of power. I'd basically be using the cab as a monitor at home. Any suggestions on a good power amp to use with this setup? I'd like stay under $500 and am willing to buy used as well, but of course the best bang for the buck is what i'm interested in. What should i look into? :confused:

    Art SLA-1, or Carvin DCM 150 ether one would be a good choice and will fit your budget and you will have cash to spair.

    What's wrong with the axe played through your hifi/nearfield speakers? It's what the axe is designed for when using NOT on stage.
