Hey guys, i took the plunge and ordered the 28's the other day. I already have a C2 and 2 5's (along with a Nanosat Prestige 5.1 set up including s10 that i am using for surrounds). I am fully aware that i'll need to get an external amp for the 28's but i am just not sure which option.
Option 1: I was looking to get the emotiva xpa-3 and power the center channel too. 200w/ch at 8ohm - 330w/ch at 4 ohm
Option 2: Get the xpa-2 just for the 28's and continue using the receiver for the center. 300w/ch at 8ohm - 500w/ch at 4 ohm
I have a Marantz sr6008 which is 110 w/ch at 8ohm - 150 w/ch at 6ohm and the c2 sounds fine, but it isn't blowing me away not sure if it is not getting enough power?
I use my system everyday for casual tv watching, ps4/xbox, and movies. I do listen to music on occasion.
PS: Happy holidays!
