That amp setup should have an ear-awaking effect on you, your neighbors, the next town, etc.... LOL

Don't know if i could use a Crown XLS.. wouldn't get the WAF. at least make them look reasonable good with the current equipment.

I have to force my wife into the minimi theater.
Sometimes this is a good thing, especially when (not)considering the WAF.

Howard,

Below are the specs for the amp's that i have powering my LFR's. I've got a smaller amp powering the rear drivers. you don't necessarily need the same amount of power available to the rear drivers as the front. The most important factor is that both amps would have the exact same gain. This is the guidance i got from Andrew when i was making my amp selection.

Amp powering the front drivers
8 Ohms 300 W 4 Ohms 600 W 2 Ohms 1200 W
Amp powering the rear drivers
8 Ohms 250 W 4 Ohms 500 W

You should be more than happy with the amps you chose. Oh, and with the power you'll have; the only thing you will need to worry about is tripping your circuit breakers (i haven't tripped one yet... ).

There's a tutorial thread on AVS for taking apart the iNuke series of pro amps so the chassis can be repainted black to match other AV gear. I plan on doing it with mine at some point, but will use Plastidip so it's easy to peel off in case of a warranty return. I'm sure the other brands can't be any harder, just a little different.

Hi Dakkon, I got five sets of dedicated breaker for this HT room. So hopefully I won't run into any problem.

BTW the seller of Crown amps offer me something I can't refuse so looks like I will be using Crown XLS 2500 instead of XLS 2000. So that's 775W @ 4ohm x2 per LFR. I say that should keep me rocking for while lol. I mean after all, five sets of Crown XLS still cheaper than what I sold one of my Parasound A21 for. It's a win in my book!

Matt, Crown XLS is really affordable compare to consumer grade amps! Look them up and you will see. I got a pair for less than $850

Tell your wife you are actually saving her money! smile Alright, I know I am pushing it.

so turbo, have you had any luck getting your LFR?? mine are still stuck at Axiom as it seems getting them actually shipped out is harder than paying for them.

I hope that Debbie pulls through as she told me she will make sure they are shipped tomorrow for me.

I am very interested in knowing how they stack up with your B&W ??
