Just my .02
I looked the 5000. Its not made by ATI like their other amps. I have owned several Emotiva amps in the past. XPA and UPA's. I never had an issue with their quality.

So that would be 80wpc from the a700.

that should be good. I'm not shooting for max spl I guess. Just mega clarity at the loudest volume I would ever listen. That should be right around reference. I'll never push it to plus 5 or anything.

I heard that the Outlaw 7140 is made by ATI. I have never owned either.

Have you guys checked out the monoprice monolith amps? I'd lean that way before the outlaw.

I just looked at it. Looks like a decent option.

I decided I'm just going to use the a700 too.

If you thought the a700 was plenty for your 10 Max's, I would think it would still be fine with these titans.

Yes that makes sense. Especially crossed over around 80hz, I won't be amp limited.

Fair enough, I was just very unimpressed with the flimsy rca jacks and $3 binding posts. The single amplifier board seemed pretty entry level too. In comparison to other "budget" amp models.
I just much prefer the more robust components. Completely personal preference.

Ah yes. Now that you mention it, the rca inputs on my XPA-3 were kind of flimsy. I remember some people actually broke them off

Should be quick with the pre-assembled crossovers

Well I have the other titan build threads to thank for that one. I originally decided to build my own. After seeing the thing in Vic's thread, I knew I was an idiot. I had to contact Erich and he added "oops I changed my mind" on the finalization of the pre order page.

The last box is all glued up. Waiting for my insulation before I glue on the front baffle. Where on the box would you guys put the speakon input? The back, side, or top?

I think I'd do the top like QSC. That should still give you room to toe in the HF portion.

I was thinking that would work. It's just ugly up there. And the speakon "pass through" so to speak, will be on the top already as well.

Been staring at this for a while. Lots of work to do on the screen wall yet, so don't judge.

I put the main speaker connection going to the board in the back of the box on the bottom and put a speakon on top of box for the mid and cd. I like having the speakon on the top behind the waveguide so when you need to move the speaker you just unplug the top portion of the box and move it safely were you want it and plug it back in.

Just out of curiosity, how do you wire the mid and cd in one speakon connector?

Most of us use the 4-pole Speakons because they're easily available and don't really cost more than the 2 poles.

Ah, ok. Just started looking into the speakon connectors for building a sub. Wasn't super familiar with them.

I don't use anything else anymore. They are so easy, secure, high current rated and built with quality that it's a no-brainer for me. I like the simple look and easy connection too.

I completely agree. There so much better than binding posts or terminal cups.
