It would look like the subs wanted to come out! (Visually)
Sound-wise it would sound awful
Is that what bottoming out is?
Now with the 10000Q the same THX demo and the mushroom part, I can go to -15 on the HK and no problem.
The subs move like crazy still but within it's range.
I wish one of you guys can be here to see and hear it.
Today, I played GOLF with some buddies and left the music play from 9:30am to 16:00 at -12 volume with bass heavy music...I wanted to see when I got home if:
1. The amp Fried
2. The subs Fried
3. The House collapsed
4. My neighbors still talked to me
Well...nothing...nothing...touched the amp and it barely felt warm.
Subs are sounding great still.
I wanted to do a torture test as my family is on vacation and nobody's home.
I'm extremely impressed with this amp!
Heywood, you're a brave man to put down 4 large when you can get 4 of these and some change back for the same coin. that's scary but like we discussed yesterday, I understand.
Good luck and thanks again for everything and thanks for ridding of this amp.
You made me very happy! I've been toying the idea of getting one of these and you being so close to me just was the last straw for me to pull the trigger...boy what a great decision from my part but thanks to you for having it!
