Background: The EP2000 is the same amp as the EP1500^ just rebadged and sold under different test specs(same amp).
It tests out to 400Wpch @4ohms......
Here's what lilmike advised when I asked about power handling of the DVC in the F20:
More in depth in the F20 thread about our convo. Having said alllll that 400W/sub should be a very safe setup for the horns but you will need a high pass. The high pass according to Mike is more to control distortion below Fc(tune of the horn) which in this case is 20Hz. The best solution for that IMO is the MINIdsp which will also take care of EQ.
Do you have a link to this minDSP? I was hoping that the Meridian 568 would let me do this but it apparently won't... low pass only.
I'm going to look into this amplifier. It would be great if I could source one through work but the one you linked to seems like a good deal.
^^^Just be aware of the fact your baseboards can take some abuse when the carpet goes in, especially if you freshly paint them right before the instal.
Might be something to consider, or you could remove them, paint them and then reinstall after the new carpet.
RT, this has me thinking...do I need to protect al my baseboards and cabinets before my carpeting is being installed? I was thinking of masking off all my wood work with painters tape and even cardboard. Or is this overkill?
I don't think it is overkill. A lot depends on how flexible the backing of your carpet is. The backing of my carpet was incredibly stiff, so that necessitated quite a bit of touching up.
You might want to extend a hand to the installer and see what he thinks. His experience in this regard would be invaluable. If I had known it would have been an issue I would have done things a little differently, but touching up was not too awful bad.
