I use both. I have my speaker system downstairs (with projector) and in my bedroom I have my main PC which I play a lot of movies on via a 50" TV and some AKG K712. As it's winter I've been using the...

It's very doubtful that someone has made a build in that config. I also don't see the point in a pair of 12's when a 15 would do about the same job for 1/2 the money.

And nowhere in my earlier post did I say it did? I was merely pointing out that going from the 50W Marantz to the 85W Yamaha you mentioned would at most gain about 2dB, a barely perceptible change....

Addendum to my earlier post: whilst I've never tripped my breaker in use, it never trips at turn on either as everything turns on in sequence, staged by a ucontroller to prevent it. Everything turns...

It's not like T/S parms are 0.1% tolerance. I have 8 of a particular model driver and they measure quite a bit differently free air, but are barely distinguishable in enclosure. There is no guarantee...

OP: I have 40A at 240V and have yet to trip it, even playing the (sealed with lots of EQ) subs I have as loud as I can bear. The whole system runs off the one circuit.

I'm an electrician, and...

The amps suggested aren't going to make any appreciable difference to the sound quality, and at best, you'll get a barely detectable 2dB in max SPL and I don't recall you mentioning it wasn't loud...

What? Google it and the spec sheet is the 4th hit and it's from Alpine. No point at all keeping T/S secret.

Go ahead. Use the fairly average Zout of 100R and Zin of 10k to explain how even a 5R interconnect is going to make an audible difference. Include all your working so I can check for errors.
