    Your amp is rated at 700 WPC into 2 ohms, so this should not be a problem. You don't want to go below 4 ohms in bridged mono mode.

    The Lancer 77 had an LE10A, PR10 (passive radiator), and an LE-20 tweeter. Looks like someone updated the woofer and PR, or at least...

    This is good to hear. My intent has been to cross the Heil over using a single 6.0 mfd cap/L-pad (~2,400 Hz). Also, my Heils will have...

  12. toddalin replied to the thread JBL L112 vs Pioneer HPM-100.

  15. toddalin replied to the thread JBL 4435 (FINALLY) in the house.
