Was wondering why a lot of powered cabs rely or mostly use basic Class D power?
is it mostly for Budget constraint reasons?
or the fact that they are more efficient and cooler running?
Guitar is part of music and coming from the HI-FI world better amps and speakers always produced better sound, in Example consider NAD power envelope technology 2200 From the 80's (variant of a switching powers supply) would work really well in a powered cab, (high head room, high current mosfets peak current 60 amps) so I wonder why most will go with a Base Class D type amp?
Amp Guru's your thoughts and input?
food for thought

Primarily for their small size and low heat while generating a lot of linear power fairly efficiently, as long as it doesn't clip.

A clipping class D amp produces squirrelly whirly non-musical (non-harmonic) noise.
