So I've decided that I'm going to run my G-horns with all my 21's and need a new amp for the g-horns. I won't be buying a clone this time and will be getting something in the 1500 watts a channel range. I'm looking for opinions. I had a rmx 5050 but I sold it a few months ago for an extremely good used price cool.gif

Keep in mine I'm in Canada.
I'd just get a CV5000 but the only place I can find them in Canada is AVshop and they are $1100

So far I'm looking at a few options but I'm looking for something I've overlooked or a place that someone may know that would see what I'm looking for, for cheaper. I'd like to keep it to under $1200 if possible since there are good options at that price.

CV 5000 - $ 1200 taxes and shipping in.
Crest cc5500 - Will be around $1100-$1200 from ebay will taxes/duty etc.
Inuke 6000 - $600 - though I'm not sold on it

What else are you guys liking at the moment?

how about a used rmx 5050? :-)~

a used crest 8002 (has pfc called powerlok) not 8200. about a grand used i think.

the inuke 6000 can't be bridged as it is already bridged per channel.

the speakerpower plate amp seems like a decent value if you are going to be pushing it hard.

Listen. It's All Good.

Well, I bought a inuke 6000 (guy didn't take the 8002 offer) to put on my 2242H's, it will have plenty of power for them @ 8ohms and I'm going to move a few of my extra ep4000's to the G-horns. They will have enough wattage to run them full out as I'm finding that with the clones, There is a 100% certainty that I will completely nuke the UXL's lol. I got the 6000dsp for $500 and that will let me get rid of my mic2200 and it will keep the 6000 in it's power range since they are only be powering 60hz to 130hz and even with rolloff, they will have more than enough power for the 2242's. I can then free up my clones to run my 21's I still want to run. plus I'll still have 1 clone I'm not using for an emergency.

sounds good. the impedance of the 2242 peaks right in that range, so they shouldn't pull much current at all. the amp is tested to provide 33% duty cycle full rms power at 8 ohms continuous both channels driven. on paper, looks good. will be interested to know if any issues crop up.

Listen. It's All Good.

Well, I guess I'll see! It will be nice to get rid of the mic2200 as it's just another link in the chain that I can get rid of. I should be getting my other UXL this week to finally get my 2nd G-horn going. I'm looking forward to try out the 6000, I will try it on the G-horns as well just to see how it does.

So the Inuke 6000 has plenty of power for my 2242H's. It's a great amp. I got my driver back from Mark, installed and rocking. I had the G-horns in about 10 different configs, The pic is the final position. I hope I never have to lift all those subs ever again. 200lbs up and down 20 times today, Not to forget the G-horns! I'm pooped!
My first config was buy far the loudest, all speakers facing the separate walls. Had a friend over the other day with his slp meter from work. Blew out 2 basement windows ( as in blew them off the tracks and into the back year hahaha) shook a 32" tv off it's stand in another room sharing the wall along with fizzing out a ton of lightbulbs. We were into the 140dB's with power to spare with everything running. It was pretty insane, even I though " holy crap I'm gonna poop" lol. The final config in the pics was the smoothest and with the horn mouths facing the back of the sofa, the most tactile feel x 100! Wowzers is it fun! I am down almost 8dB at 20hz than facing the walls but the feel is amazing and it's still above 130dB at 20hz. I'm giddy like a little school girl! I'm also crazy happy with the first sweep with rew. About +-4dB from 15hz to 1K, that was one of the biggest reasons I'm leaving it how it is now.

I'm not posting any graphs until I'm 100% done with the setup/EQ so don't ask for any, I'll post them when I'm done cool.gif

Holy cow those are close!

I've put my head near the opening to check for air leaks and such and the pressure gets pretty crazy.

the 21's are not pointed at your head, they are at the sidewalls and the horn mouth is at the bottom of the sofa. You dont get that same feelimg as sticking your head infront of a sub. Its more like a car. just a total body experience. i have it level matched amd you cant even tell the bass is coming from behind, the same as it was before. just a crazy tactile feel from the horns.
Whats really crazy is Im still sub limited as the Noesis can way overpower that stack of boom. lol crazy stuff.
