  3. That is what happens when you don't take pride in your things. These are rough. Passives no longer available. More of a parts item but what parts are any good?
  4. I like the MiniDSP 2x4 HD just to cut certain frequencies in my subwoofers. I think it makes a great eq tool for that purpose. I like both tapped horn and 6th order parallel bandpass subwoofers done right because they have very little distortion and slam in spades.
  5. My Chorus II are not designed to be bi-amped from the factory. Those Cornwall's have the ability to put a nice sounding 5 watt tuber on the top and a nice 500 watt solid stater on that big ole woofer. I have found it is my woofers in my Chorus that loves the watts. So I have found in my years of searching a pair of amps that sound great on my horns and able to take complete control of my woofers. This is a great forum and it really doesn't need polluted with personal attacks on amplifier preference. I am sure I would enjoy listening to every forum members systems. We all put a lot of time and effort into what we feel sounds best in our environments and preferences in music. I prefer classic, hard, progressive rock and heavy metal. Quite a few of those recordings have much to be desired and I probably listen a bit too loud sometimes.🙂 Give me 5 great watts for my horns, 500 watts for my woofers and 1000 watts for my subs.👍
  6. Well maybe the 1600 watt monoblock is more your fancy! It is also Tripath!😁
  7. The carver professional zr series amplifiers used that tripath topology. Very tube like in nature with tons of raw power. Bel Canto comes to mind as well.
  8. Personally I tap out at about 115dbs usually for only a song and back to around 100-105 for some good jamming. I got out my meter and my normal listening is around 80.
  9. Call me silly but I would imagine most forum members own a volt/multimeter. The uses are endless. This is a fun hobby like formula one racing, boating, off roading or model airplanes. Telling everyone who buys at least a 10 watt amplifier are just wasting their money seems a little steep. My biggest waste of money is computers.
  10. LOL. I doubt very much if that is where Trey was going with his response. Almost all amplifiers sound good on Klipsch as long as you don't bury the volume knob. Now there are some pretty dirty sources that I wouldn't make that comment about.
