Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: High powered amp + high Effeciency speakers =?

I use a Dr.Bruce "Titan" type system with field coils drivers along with dual Altec 515b's per mid bass horns. With a sensitivity of around 108db, it is important to use an amplifier that is "QUIET" noise wise. I prefer 211 / 845 type amplifiers along with higher power triode tubes like KR t100. My system is in a medium size room 15.5' x 23' with 10' ceilings and I sit 17' away from the voice coils. Using 2A3, 50 , 300b amps ( which I have ) DON'T cut It !!! when playing large orchestral works, realistic live jazz, drum recordings etc. I have an older modified VTL mono blocks with 225 triode watts per channel and they sound ok but not as clear, spacious, and dynamic as my SET amps. I have had various ARC, CJ, and other push pull amplifiers in my system and none sound as good IN MY SYSTEM as SET. My sub woofers are dual TC Sounds LMS 5400's per sealed 9.5 cu ft. in dual opposed configuration with a pair of Crown Itec 5000hd amps strapped to mono blocks and crossed over at 60hz. at48db. The subs are eq'd flat from 12hz. to 60 hz. using Crowns built in eg / crossover functions.
