According to my calculator 75W x 2=150W per CH, 220W to 150W still seems the Panasonic is 70W short per channel.. so maybe triamping the Panasonic will get you close in power but then you still only have 6 channels compared to the 2005's seven channels....
Also go back and reread my posts, I have always said the Panasonic sounded good but simply lacked enough power for my primary system. If the Panasonic fulfills your expectations then go with it..
However keep in mind that I did keep the XR50, though now it is relegated to my garage system as it works great for background music when I am out working on the racecar....
Well this might not work for you, but im sure you would have your required db's while running two.
In my case it ends up being 200 @6 channels into 6 ohm, now I just need a second 45.
I may end up whith two pro modified 45's bi amping at a cost thats well over 2k, so the point is, its not about money for everyone that uses a Pany.
I tried to link an AA post from yesterday that has somone wanting more power than his Pany 45 has to offer, but whith the same transparent sound.
This person likes the Pany 45 better than bi amped Bel Canto evo 200.2
's, His former Krells,Conrad Johnsons ect, because he finds the Pany 45 more transparent and dynamic than the rest.
The post is at towards the top of the amp section at www.audioasylum.com
and is a perfect example that the Panys are more than just price point champs imo.
Now lets hear a little about your race car please?
