RichP714's setup

Recommended Posts

Old pictures (it's still inwork, and I'm busy doing mk II's for now, so it's on hold). I've since installed the top two M-1.0t mk II's (as in my avatar) and the surround speakers. Still have to do the surround back speakers and a DIY sonotube/wave cannon sub.

Yes, all are mk II amps. I don't know if the lights dim; I haven't opened her up yet; she's still in progress, although the dynamics WILL snap your head back and the bass will ALMOST breathe for you (subwoofer coming). While they were building I had them put two dedicated 30A outlets (front left/right) the rest are on 'regular' house breakers.

Well, the great thing about Carver mag field stuff; at idle it just sips current. e.g. the M-1.0t mk II (33VDC bottom rail, 115VDC top rail) is a 400W amp, but behaves like a 110W amp unless it has to.

 

Add to that, I'm tri-amping my system (which theoretically cuts power requirements by four) and don't have to go much above 5 watts to reach concert levels (my speakers are high sensitivity)

 

The meter is in another room, but I doubt it would spin faster.

Sweet setup. I haven't seen DBX stuff in like, forever. Ranes look like the ones I use on my guitar amp
