I am looking to audition a pair of m80's. I live about 25 minutes south of Boston, MA. I would like to bring my 40 watt Manley Stingray over to drive them.

Sicerely,

Lampshade

I hope you get a chance to hear the 80's. If not, look for 60's to hear, they will give you a good idea of what to expect from the 80's.

Thanks Quack. I really want to hear the 80s because they are 4 ohms and my amp likes 4 ohms better than 8.

Currently I am contemplating another crazy idea. I have lots of them. If I get the 80's. I am going to get them in high gloss orange. Big money. Later I will add the other speakers, center etc.

I might do this instead...

I have written the speaker designer of my current speaker to see if his center channel will match well with my speakers(they have been discontinued). If he says yes, I am going to get that center channel and keep using my current speakers for a home theater and stereo role. I will have to buy the monoblock version of my amp to make everything match up nice no matter which brand center combo I end up with.

Option B should run about the same money as the high gloss orange M80s.

For the curious:
Current speakers- JM Reynaud Trentes
Current Amplifier- Manley Stingray
Mono block amp needed- Manley Mahi

I also need some speakers for my 2 watt per channel SET. Maybe some M3s.

Lampshade, you MUST provide pics if you end up getting the High Gloss Orange M80s!

Wow, I thought everything would drive an 8ohm speaker.

It will drive the 8 ohms no problem. It sounds better when it drives 4 ohms.

The lower resistance in the speaker is allowing the amp to deliver more power for better dynamics.

The 80's do have better dynamics than the 60's, according to Ian.
