Dont hack a good M4V. get a low drive radio. Why do you want to bypass the driver? I love messenger amps.Scott. P.S. If you have A nice messenger AB class amp PM me if you want to sell it. M350 or biger.Thanks.

There is no advantage to doing that to a fine amplifier. All it would do is say let you run a 50 watt Stryker into the amp. By having a built in driver it is a low drive amp, remove the driver stage and it can take a greater peak input and a little more carrier. I would keep it as is.
