8 ohm rating:

• 7 channels - 8 ohm = 125 watts per channel

• 6 channels - 8 ohm = 135 watts per channel

• 5 channels - 8 ohm = 140 watts per channel

• 4 channels - 8 ohm = 150 watts per channel

• 3 channel - 8 ohm = 160 watts per channel

• 2 channel - 8 ohm = 170 watts per channel

• 1 channel - 8 ohm = 180 watts per channel

4 ohm rating:

• 7 channels - 4 ohm = 185 watts per channel

• 6 channels - 4 ohm = 200 watts per channel

• 5 channels - 4 ohm = 225 watts per channel

• 4 channels - 4 ohm = 235 watts per channel

• 3 channel - 4 ohm = 260 watts per channel

• 2 channel - 4 ohm = 280 watts per channel

• 1 channel - 4 ohm = 300 watts per channel


I think with that amp, my speakers will get a lot more power... I may go after that amp.

Especially with using 6 or 5 channels on it only...

With the volt meter, it reads all my speakers as 4 ohms.
Nice. Expensive though.

Yeah, may be so, but cheaper than buying many UPA2s to equal that...

I think I SHOULD get the UPA7, because my speakers may say "compatible with 8ohm or lower receivers)... the volt meter shows that each of them are 3.5 - 4.1 ohms... and my Pioneer Elite is only rated for 8 ohms... well, 6 ohms, but they recommend 8...

After reading the article Chipp linked me to, I think it is worth spending money on that amp for two reasons...

1.) To get more power
2.) To protect my $650 Pioneer Elite from getting damaged

I always wanted an external amp, and I think I've finally got enough reasons to get one.

*EDIT*

Wow! 71 pounds. I didn't know amps could weigh that much. lol

Probably, but without having seen the inside of one I'd guess it is predominantly the power transformers.

What do you guys suggest in the way of powered bookshelf speakers, under $350 (for the pair), and will sound good on the low end without a subwoofer? I'd rather not get a bunch of speakers that push the limit at $350, but rather some suggestions at various prices under 350. I don't have the money yet, but I figured I would start researching early, and I don't plan on going over $350. I haven't looked much yet, but so far the Polk TSi series has caught my eye.

Also, would I be making the right choice in going with active for a budget system?

My $50 hissy Logitech garbage with it's mudwoofer is really bugging me.

"Sale on ELT525M Mini Monitor with a Gizmo"

Quote:
What makes Santa real happy every day is listening to his KILLER desktop audio system. Santa cannot easily open the Kimono all the time because he is SO happy about this system he is listening to…

Santa went to Mr. Craig Chase – head honcho at Tweek City Audio and he begged him to allow for this one package (50 systems only) deal… BC said YES… (thank you Craig)…

OK – here’s what we’ve done… We take one Gizmo and mod the pre-amp section so that the sub out tracks the volume controller now…

We add to that… One pair of our ELT525M’s (Rosewood or Cherry)…

We couple that to a set of 8-ft Ultralink Speaker Cables (these are the Matrix 2’s --- complete with banana’s)


We are going to offer 50 of these systems at $299 for EVERYTHING… (Gizmo will ship after the mod is done - about 3 weeks - the rest is in stcok and ready to go)...

This is Santa’s “love child”… I almost never turn my two systems off…

So - $299 for the entire package (+ freight)…

I love this system – and Santa will have a nice surprise in early ’09 for those interested in a matching sub…

Gizmo Link here...

http://tweakcityaudio.com/index.php?...emart&Itemid=1

Go Folks Go… this is The One!

Thanks…

ss

UL's Matrix 2 - 14 gauge speaker cables...
You get:
  • ELT525Ms
  • UL's Matrix 2 14 awg speaker cable
  • MODDED! TCA Gizmo
  • ALL FOR 300 DOLLARS - NORMALLY THESE ARE 300 WITHOUT CABLES/AMP


[source]

Click source for the link to buy it.

These, are great speakers. I currently own reference 0.5s, these are basically the newer versions of these speakers (give or take a few touches).


I am not advertising, i am just putting it out there for all to see since i have seen the same question numerous amounts of time.

I'd say partially the enclosure, and more of the electrical goodies inside.


My bedroom is on a 20amp breaker... and the max load on that amp is 14 amps... my powered sub takes 2 amps, my Pioneer elite takes 4amps... I don't know how much my TV takes, but I sure hope I won't blow the breaker from this.

Key words there are max load - under real world conditions, I highly doubt you'll make it never the danger zone in that regard.

I (admittedly pretty dumbly) have run two Mackie 1232zs off a single 20amp breaker before and by the grace of whatever deity you choose to believe in I didnt blow it.

na when you blow a breaker you know you have it up loud enough

btw great looking system I am thinking of getting the ups 2 to see what these diamonds can do (of course it would help if I ever got paid on time )

Would anyone say for Onix Reference 0.5s, the ups 2 is better than the TCA Gizmo? Obviously for getting really loud, but im not sure if i should invest.

edit: looks like the emotiva has two inputs?
