Axiom has not announced the specs for each driver array. I am very curious. I think those triple HP woofers will be good to 1000W average and 4000W peak.

Regarding the amplitude response, Ian posted it on these boards. The Listening Window and Sound Power are one!

I'm wondering if the front woofers impedance is way less then 4 ohms .... in that case you may get your wish ... but ... depending on the answer your average amp may not play nice with them.

The triple HP woofer array is 4 Ohms and I think it might dip down to 3.2 Ohms in the bass region. This is no problem for an ADA-1500.

We have posted the correct Frequency Graph in the Specifications section of the product page for the LFR1100 Active now. Just need to do the Impedance Graph so it shows all five driver sections.

Hot damn. Those curves signify awesomeness! Craig, you're one fortunate dude.

Thanks Ian... do you have the nominal impedances for the 5?

What's needed are impedance curves and nominal and peak power levels for the driver arrays so listeners can decide on appropriate amplification for the wee beasties.

Actually at the moment I’m trying to figure out where my amps should go. High Impedences makes it easier to put all the heat in a well ventilated closet (I.e. use longer speaker cables).

Those woofers are gonna pull 12A nominal and 25A peak. If you're going with separate amps, I'd say put the woofer amps by the LFR. Otherwise wire them with that 0000 cable I posted. smile

On the other hand, you should try to keep the signal cables as short as possible to minimize interference. I think you should hire a P.E. to investigate this and come up with stamped drawings.

I figure if the wire resistance is < then say 1/100 of the nominal speaker impedance then I'm probably in pretty good shape (damping > 100).

So for an 8 ohm speaker 12AWG copper wire is good for about 25'. Run two in parallel for 4 ohms ... etc (easier/cheaper In most cases than getting wire below 10 AWG). So for the price of a 500' spool of 12 AWG copper speaker wire I'm in business as long as there are not too many 2-4 ohm connections to be driven.
