wow recieved my xpa 1s mono block amps yesterday

hooked em up on my paradigm studio 100 v5s

wow what an AWESOME sound

i went from the lowly power of a denon 3313 ci 125 wpc in stereo

to an xpa 3 200 wpc that produced a massive improvement in the sound quality of my speakers

yesterday i hooked up the xpa 1s mono block 500 wpc 8 ohm 1000 wpc 4 ohm

the sound is absolutely amazing another 10 steps up from the xpa 3

the sound is so much more fuller richer cleaner clearer smoother and better..

absolutely amazing improvemnet in the sound quality..

money very well spent.. if you like great sound quality..

Da Power is awesome



cheers

In the real world you can definitely get away with a lot less than that. All of my receivers have lived in my wooden A/V console, with less than 1 inch on either side, although plenty of room above and big slot in the back for ventilation. With the door closed it can get somewhat warm but never hot, but it should be noted that I don't really drive my setup that hard. If I did, I'd probably just install an exhaust fan in the back to suck out hot air.

What a HUGE mistake in purchasing the XPA-1s!!!!
Only 500 watts rating.
Better return them quick and get the King
XPR-1 at 1000 watts.
Obviously they will sound many times better than the puny XPA-1s.
Would think knowing it is all about Da Power that he would not have made this mistake.

oh yes the xpr 1 would be another step up in sound quality... Your right but i think i would upgrade my speakers before i add that kind of power...

i noticed you dont have a system listed in your profile

what kinda Power you running ? maybe you can post some pics too...

Man my speakers are absolutely amazing with the xpa 1s money extremely well spent... if your want amazing sound quality...
