I got to check out Doug's system today - it's awesome! The room looks so good too, the pictures don't do it justice. It's really cool to look up and see the backs of the hidden monster LMS drivers....

That sounds perfect! I'm betting I wouldn't get any speaker hiss with those either. I can't hear the hiss with the 3000 in my LP, but I can hear it with the 6000.

^ I think the 212's can be pushed to insane levels, the 215's can be pushed to 11 db's less than insane levels :) which is still louder than I need.

I have a fan mod on the CV 5000, but it only cut the db's of the fans by 3 db's. I don't think it's a limiting factor with the CV, you guys should see how badly I've abused the CV over the past year...

Before testing I thought the difference would be less than 6 db's. I have read that the 3000 puts out around 700 -800 real world watts in 4 ohms per channel and the 6000 puts out 2200 watts in 4...
