Yes, its defeated very easily using a menu on the front panel (no dip switches). I have one and I'm a big fan: mine runs a 2 ohm load for hours without the fans running hard.

I've got my crown pro amp hooked up to a light switch that is there to control a plug socket. It's only an xls1000 so not too concerned, works great for us! Flip the switch for bass...

I'm listening to a pair of 1262w right now, for the price they can't be beaten. I'm running them 2ohm, 550w each and they're rock solid. Not a huge amount below 30hz, but I expected that in a pair...

If it helps, I run my Denon 1712 pre-out to a Crown XLS 1000 and can clip the amp with no problems - i.e. driving it full power. Input sensitivity of the Berry should be similar.

Thanks for the replies. It's rare that I clip the amp just during regular music or movie viewing. I try and make sure my gain structure limits it, but sometimes you've got to find out what a clip...

Ha, a fair point. They are a pair of infinity drivers that cost me $67 each. I'd be upset at destroying them, but much less so than if they cost $400 each. The cheapness makes me less cautious, or...

infinity reference 1260w, wired 4 ohms, in a sealed box around 1.5 cubes. I have a pair of the dual voice coil 1262w and they are great, although I'm pushing them with 550 watts each.

How about some fishing line? high test monofilament, should keep the cat out and be just about acoustically invisible. Positioned a little inside and you might not even see it.

Recommended sealed enclosure size for those subs is 1.25 cubes per driver. So the box is likely too large. Can you try putting a block of heavy wood in there, to reduce the size by a cubic foot?
