Hey gang, I'm trying to find the power handling specs for the following Onix speakers -
RS550 mk2 mains
RSC100 mk2 center
The reason that I ask is that I am pulling the trigger on a set of seven Marantz MA6100 mono amps (125 watts RMS at 8 ohms).
I know that all the speakers should be fine when driven by a single amp, but I would like to bridge four of the amps to drive the two main speakers. I have seen specs for the bridged power of the MA500 amps which the MA6100s are supposedly a new version of, and it looks like those put out 360 watts RMS when bridged. Is this overkill for the RS550s? Should I just run a single amp for each speaker and then save the other two amps to run a DYI sub in the future?
These Marantz amps are going to replace the amplification in my Denon 3805. I'm hoping I get a noticeable difference in sound quality, but for $75 a pop, they might just be worth it for the "cool" factor. We'll see.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
