Tube Amp for Forte 3

Recommended Posts

I own a pair of Forte 1 upgraded with Bob Crites tweeters and Mids sound great.

Also upgrade with munsonic k-stacks.

Going to purchase a new pair of Forte 3 will use my current speakers as B channel.

What receiver tube amp should I buy to drive both pairs?

Are you wanting to run them at the same time?  If so, don't.  Many good reasons to not run two pairs of speakers being sent the same signal, especially two different types of speakers. 

 

If that was your plan I'd suggest selling your current fortes and going with Cornwalls.

you need 2 tube amps , 1 amp is just not sufficient  to drive 2 pairs at once unless it is a more powerful SS Amp , the problem being the higher cost of tube amps as the wattage augments , the price balloons -   I would look at the Older Dynaco ST 70  , these were quite affordable   -------or the Scot 222C -
