My ATI amps cannot be bridged. So each Funk sub only gets one channel of amp.
I do want to say I liked my dual Rythmik subs a lot. I mean before I heard my dual Funk 18.0, I thought the Rythmik subs were the best I've ever heard. But the Funk 18.0s are that much better.
At first I thought if I were to just run the Rythmik subs hot +10dB higher than the Funk, it would even out. I also ran my dual RBH SX-1010N subs (775wpc 4ohm) hot +10dB higher than the Funk when comparing the RBH vs Funk.
But the Funk still significantly outperformed the Rythmik & RBH. So it's not just power output or average SPL output (running the subs +10dB hot). It's Dynamic output, power compression, efficiency, and other factors.
Someone who owns Funk 18.0 subs told me once that "Subs are the most important thing".
When I heard that, my thought was "R I G H T", "W H A T E V E R".
But after I heard the Funk 18.0 subs, I truly think that a pair of Gem2 + dual Funk 18.0 subs will outperform a pair of Salon2 alone, and a pair of B&W 805D2 + dual Funk 18.0 subs will outperform a pair of B&W 800D2 alone (no subs). I really do. Of course, I'm sure some will totally disagree. But I truly feel this way.Edited by AcuDefTechGuy - 2/1/13 at 6:17am
