I just picked up a used sona 23c. I have to say I am liking this amp. First it's lightweight, at about 37 pounds, I can carry it. When I first turned it on, it did hiss, until I turned down the highs (they were all the way up) on the onboard eq. Then it was fine.
I'm using an amp primarily as a stage monitor that I, and the rest of the band can hear and feel. I did our first gig with it on Saturday, in a medium sized club. The house sound was LOUD, drinks were shaking on the tables. The folks were packed in there and dancing their butts off. I had to crank it up, but I could hear the barbetta over the house on stage, so it did what I wanted it to do.
It's got a nice thump from the 15" woofer, and good midrange and highs. I wa going to go for the jbl eon g2, but I picked this amp up for 1/2 the price, so its was worth it. The band did comment that they liked my new rig.
