(This isn't flaming) You could check out their website, www.mesaboogie.com for the specific details.

Basically, the Dual is 100W and the Triple is 150W. (The Single Rectifier is 50W, see the pattern? Pretty slick:D).

Not to mention the Triple is a lot more expensive than the Dual.

I'm sure there are other differences.

Oh yeah, I forgot: The Triple has one more 6L6 tube and one more 5U4 tube than the Dual.

Besides what he just said... the Dual is much, much better, and the Triple is a complete waste of money. 150 watts is way too much for anyone who isn't playing stadiums.

But then it wouldn't be a waste if you're playing stadiums.

Hence, it's only a waste of money based on your position in life.

i prefer the dual over all, it just has more headroom than the single and as far as volume goes... the triple really isnt much louder. and fyi the triple isnt very much more expensive at all. at guitarcenter out here it goes like this.... single recto:1,400, dual:1,500, and tripl:1,600.
you could still play a stadium with a single recto, any amp is loud enough when its miked, which is what they will do in huge venues and stuff anyways.

friends don't let friends play krank

Q: How many Bush Administration officials does it take to change a light bulb?

A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; it's conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effect. Why do you hate freedom? Why don't you support our troops?
