>From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wall_of_Sound_(Grateful_Dead):

"The Wall of Sound consisted of eighty-nine 300-watt solid state and
three 350-watt
vacuum tube amplifiers, driving the speakers with a total of 26,400
watts RMS ... Phil
Lesh's bass guitar was piped through a quadraphonic encoder that sent
a separate
signal from each of the four strings to its own channel and set of speakers."

This was in '73-74.  Rock and roll indeed 8-)
