check Toroidal[Heavyweight] Vs SMPS[Lightweight] amplifiers

8 years 4 months ago #18096 by saul
there's not enough proper decent genuine lightweights out there, let alone chinese copies, to even be considering the demise of torroidal amplifiers. And the good ones all cost top $$.

but then that's when we're talking about the scoopists, which let's face it, is an insignificant portion of the global amplifier market.

The thing most that amazes me all the time our set play out with our SMP lightweights, is plugging into a 13amp supply & powering our bass @ 2ohms with ease "x8 18" Fane XB's" smiley32

It always brings a smile to our faces when others "who we play alongside" are pondering on 32amp supplies to power x4 18" drivers. smiley36

We've got x2 American Audio 6001+ in stock, x2 Charley Destructors "3000 watters" in stock & 1 Yorkville in stock :-D We haven't used them in over 18months @ a event, everyone in our crew is getting lazy!! When we take out the machine, 10 out of 10 times those heavyweights get left in the lock up smiley36


Respect....................... smiley4

+1 in general, this is very odd how there seems to be this myth that the type of breaker or fuse will make a difference to the condition of the mains.

fair enough, but i don't think the same could be said for those whose 8x boxes were turbomax 1500m3 / 1200 / pd1851 loaded smiley36

anyway, Everyman ey....
