Hey Luke,

What was the difference between your recent test and the previous one mentioned below that you mention that the "7.5 lives up to it's specifications". Obviously, this time around the 7.5 was only half of it's rated power, so it didn't meet the specs.

Thanks for the info.

In 4ohm stereo, the difference between the 7.5 ($800) and the sp2-12k ($3,400) was almost exactly 3db in favor of the sp2. Not bad at all considering the price and also that the 7.5 was running 120v compared to 240v of the SP2.

The difference was 2ohm stereo vs 4ohm stereo.


I knew going in that the 7.5 wasn't going to reach rated power in 2ohm stereo based on other owners experiences with the amp.


However, I'm going to run the test again at 4ohm stereo and I have no doubt it'll meet specs.

Thanks Luke. It looks like you need to stick with a CC if you want to run 2 ohm loads.

I've pushed my 7500 very hard with a quad of SI18's and have never been able to shut it down. I ensure that I'm not too far into clipping though. Maybe I'm not pushing hard enough? Is this only running sine waves at single digit frequencies or something?

2 ohm stereo load is what does it. You have no warning like you do at 4ohm when you start to see the lights flicker and can back off a shade. With 2 ohm stereo, it is fine one second, then the channels shut down the next. It's pretty instantaneous.

Im hoping quad UM18's will be a good match since they dont really get down to 4 ohms a piece till 5hz. Well into system signal roll off territory. That should keep it just over 2 ohms per channel most of the time. We shall see

I think you'll be just fine there. One of these is a pretty solid match for 4 um18's. I do have one for sale in the classys ya know
