Hi guys - we have a pair of LFR-1100 Actives ordered with an ADA-1500-6 to go along with our current ADA-1500-4. The 4 channel will handle the three 6.5 woofers per speaker and the dual 5.25 inch rear mids.

The ADA-1500-6 will handle the The front mids and front/rear tweeters.

The current LFR-1100's will go to the rear speaker duty, and a Marantz 7703 pre-amp for processing duties.

A pair of EP-800's will anchor the system.

This is going to be FUN !!

Mojo - no center in this system, although we will have the VP180HP with the M100's in our dedicated theater.

This system is more for high end, 2 channel.

I see. You know those triple woofers can handle peaks in excess of 5200W? In which case the 1500-4 will not bring them to their dynamic limits. Just sayin'. You'll have high end but not the highest. laugh

Based on the expected compression as we near the excursion limits, we are giving up less than 1 dB of actual output against the maximum.

I can handle that. laugh

I am sure at some point giving up that 1 dB will start to haunt you. Hee hee...snort! smile

Wow too cool!!!

Here on the West Coast anxiously awaiting your opinion, of possibly the dream system all the other manufacturers are attempting to build at the moment.

On the YouTube other manufacturers have been speaking of making fully active systems in the future.

A pair of actives with dual ADA-1500's plus a pair of EP800's has a retail of about $18,400. Ian will typically give a pretty good system price - let's call it $16,000.

For $15,000, one gets an omnidirectional system with some serious blind testing and science behind it. It will have a flat response curve from 12 to 20,000 Hz. It's Power Sound Curve will be something no one in the industry can touch.

And, it will have about 15,000 watts of pure power that never touches a passive crossover.

I find it quite sad that every few years, the major manufacturers are re-inventing their drivers and cabinets and all the tooling and processes that go with that. It's akin to re-inventing the wheel. Axiom makes the wheel rounder and bigger.
