Re: Bosso's post # 51.
Thanks for all of the information. I am curious about a few things. You said a 50% failure rate. That does not seem too good for an amp that you have no warranty for. Is this accurate to say that you have had a few of these fail in your application of LT'd boosted sealed subs operated at sometimes very high levels? The inability to drive 2ohm loads well... Is that what condition some of the amps failed under? What problems were encountered, early clipping/limiting or shutdown?
Any amplifier with 4 fans is going to be very loud. No way around it. This is part of the reason why I sold the PL9.0's. They also had 4 large fans and were loud. I don't believe in fan modding either. The K10's do have a much quieter fan system so I lucked out there.
I had thought that the LG's were universal voltage? I see that they are not and you select either one or the other range from the factory, or could convert it yourself in all likelyhood, but universal voltage is something that is on my amplifier check list. I prefer to be able to plug the amp in and have it recognize and adjust itself. Granted this isn't something that most here would need worry about. I wouldn't personally even worry about getting the bigger amplifiers unless I was planning on running 240v.
I am in need of 2 more big honkin amps at some point. I had planned on 2 more K10's but unfortunately that hook up sailed before I could get the finances together for the second pair.
I'd rather not buy these for the reasons cited by Mark and personal prinicpal, plus the no warranty thing or US repair center in case something does happen and I would really like to have universal voltage input, plus Bosso's mention of some failures is concerning, but at the same time it is very hard to ignore these when they are a 3rd to a 1/4 of the price that I can get on a comparable amp from one of the established amplifier brands.
