AED can stand for anything, really, but it's also a play on Aoede, the Muse of song.

Can the AED shock your heart back to life, too?

Not if its coated in bacon grease.

My only entry,

I like things named after their designer/engineer. So, AW for that. I noticed that the power levels on 5 channels went from 625W to 1225W to 1660W. Kind of a log scale, which you would expect from an amp. So, to keep it simple...

AW1
AW2
AW3

How about Axiom Principle Series Amplifiers
P1000-D
P1250-D
P1500-D
Or... Axiom Pure Principle Series Amplifiers
PP1000-D
PP1250-D
PP1500-D

A nice tie-in with the definition of Axiom:

1. a self-evident truth that requires no proof.
2. a universally accepted principle or rule.
3. Logic, Mathematics . a proposition that is assumed without proof for the sake of studying the consequences that follow from it.
