Also half related. I had some time to play around with my setup this weekend, and was blasting above reference for over an hour. Both Crowns only had minor heat, no fans running, no signal clipping. The subs were uncomfortably loud, even for me, and the voice coils were room temperature. My amps are running Bridged to 4 ohms. I considered a single 7500/7.5 for my setup actually; while I have no basis for comparison, I'm extremely happy with the Crowns.
Thanks for that info. I'm pretty much stuck at needing 4 channels of amp for my setup. And the rear two enclosures are locked in at 4 ohm (4 SVC 4 ohm subs per enclosure). The front 2 are either 8 or 2 ohm loads (2 SVC 4 ohm subs each). The Peavey just doesnt fit my needs, and same with the FP20, FP14, I'd need two of either, which is way more than my budget would ever allow.

While it may be weak, if I use it for my front 2 subs, @ 2 ohms its got more wattage than I need. As stated above I need 4 channels of amp so I can independently time align and EQ them. Now thats why I also was planning on using the XLS2000's for my rear subs, as those will be within 1m of the listener on either side, as opposed to the front 2 subs which will be closer to 3m away, and as such are more filling in nulls than anything.
I was wondering if the sound difference I'm hearing (subjectively I know) was due to the differences in the Class of the amps I have.
It appears that if its the case, its more due to the specific amps in play rather than the general topologies.
