N8 - You know I was hoping you would respond here.
That's awesome you've got one powered up already. When you said "it's no clone" - how far off does it appear to be in terms of raw power? My XLS5000 seemed to have just as much power if not more in bridged mode than one
of my clone's channels. That's just going by ear/feel though, not measurement and I doubt it's as strong <20hz. My replacement amp would be in pairs as in I would be buying two of these guys to replace my FP14000 which I recently sold to try something else. I had also strongly considered a speakerpower but they're just a bit out of budget at the moment.

Intersting - any reason why? Proven power, etc?

Probably true, but my amps are triggered via a relay so only powered on when in use. For the hour or so I use it each night (tops), I don't think either one is going to put a hurting on the bills.

I have a miniDSP anyway, so not much of a concern.
