I have a pair of Paradigm SE-1's in my second zone that I use strictly for two channel listening. I tend to drive them hard at times and recent blew my bass/midrange driver. Outside of the obvious (Stop pushing them so hard), does anyone here think an external amp with more power would help? Currently my Yamaha 2010 drives them. It is rated at 140w two channels driven. Obviously less if other channels are being driven but I can't find the specs on that. Speakers are rated at 15w -120w.
If you think an external would help, I'm looking for recommendations and my range is less than $600. Any suggestions? I'll also post this on the Paradigm site? Thanks in advance to anyone that responds.
