RE: What makes a driver High Efficiency?

Posted by claudej1@aol.com on June 11, 2023 at 15:57:54:

Knowing I am with fellow cheapskates here (a distinguished group I might add)..................who's gonna spend a Kilobuck on a multitap autoformer with a rotary control for only ONE friggin driver????

Go active crosovers with 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 outputs, since we are talking high efficiency, you only need TI 3255 chip amps and derivatives to do the job. They are available RCA or Balanced XLR instead of buy 1 Horsepower Class A/AB amps like a friend just did Times 2 because they are monoblocs.
