Good to see JTR people with opposite views( about power anyway).
I feel any time you get a chance to double your watts than do it.
That is why I love my 12s, they take more than what I can give
them and say "thank you may I please have more".
I have read where peolpe state that it does not matter your total watts
becauase you only get 5 watts whether your amp can produce 200w or 400w.
I do not understand that aurgument because:
using XPA-5 VS XPR-5 as an example,
In my system if using a XPA-5 to power then replacing it with the XPR-5, essentially doubling
the rated power,
If I am plugging it in the same power outlet and just replacing an amp for an amp, would it not
draw more watts. Mabey not double but definitely more.
I might be wrong but you will not know till you try it. If you do, please report your thoughts back because
I would be interested in your overview.There is nothing like first hand experience.
For me I cant wait to see the XPR-1 1000 watts at 8ohm and 2000 watts at 4ohm.
My 12s might cry "uncle" at that time.
Till then I am going to keep trying.
I LOVE MORE POWER!!!
I am of the opinion
