as such, it makes no sense to provide the speakers with kilowatts of power when 50 is enough.
The bridged channel is for my dual subs. I just can't think of a good way to confirm that I am getting bridged power, and not a single channel's worth. Since the Speakon is wired correctly at +1 and+2, I don't believe single channel output would be possible wired this way.
Either way, my powerful fronts AND dual 18" subs are being run off this one amp, and they sound just as fantastic as they did with the XPA-5 and EP4000. In fact, I think the speakers sound a little better, with less sibilance, which I believe was from the XPA-5's high gain. A tiny, not much noticeable difference, but still for the better.
The only way they could make this better is with built in DSP that can handle less than 20hz for not much more $$$. I could then even ditch my MiniDSP.
Sherwood R-972 (Trinnov) + SEOS Towers + 2x Stereo Integrity 18" subs + SEOS Surrounds + INuke NU4-6000 + MiniDSP = "Cheap", Reference, better than theater sound.
