....Im just waiting to get some cash together and will contact him as soon as that is done.
What can i expect from this upgrade...........anyone want to post some thoughts if they found it a worthy upgrade. Did you find the bass went lower?...was it more controlled? was there more impact/slam?
I do listen at reference and ran the PGM2 button after audyssey with the avr sub trim being turned up 4-6db hot lol. I did get some clipping on heavy scenes like the Hulk/Abomination punch scene.
Let me know your experiences....I have read as much as i can from some ppl on google....but thought I might get more experience stories here! lol.
I have the 1000watt version also and I thought Mark said going with the bigger amp would give me about 3dB more output and SQ would be the same.
Unless I misunderstood him, but I think that sounds about right because the Lab 15 is rated for 600watts approx so adding more power doesn't leave much room for increased output when you are already close to their max output. I am interested to see what Mark says.
