RichP714's setup

You know, Rich; you really need that center channel speaker right above the TV in the empty space.  Imaging gets thrown off with it that high.  What are you using for surround speakers?

The center is only used for movies, which I'm not caring that much about, surrounds are klipsch RF-3 II's

That is awesome! Are you using the 500ts or the 1.0ts on the mains? I have 1.0ts on my mains (Klipsch RF7s) now, but I hooked Bill's 500t up to them before I shipped it off to him, and I think I like it better than the 1.0t on the Klipsch....

 

Now I think I have to find myself a pair of 500ts...:-)

Absolutely gorgeous setup!
 
At high volume, does the M500 dedicated to the tweeters run into trouble from staying on the higher-voltage rails? Or did you modify it for high frequency use?
 
Since those are all convection-cooled amps, stacked right on top of each other, how warm is the air off the top amp?
 
Are all your components fed by the same phase? I've heard that mixing phases within the same setup can contribute to ground loops and noise.
 
Inspiring collection!

The rail lock issue is more relevant to pro use (continuous high levels); the time constant is around 6.5kHz for the rail switching, and if exposed to that freq at level sufficient to switch to the top tier, the top tier will 'lock up' and draw heavy current until the >6.5k signal drops below switching threshold
 
In home use (and being tri-amped and using high sensitivity loudspeakers) 10 watts on the tweets is almost unbearably loud

I have three intake fans on the bottom and three exhaust on the top

The amps run from two dedicated 30A breakers, all on the same side of the main panel

I can only imagine!!

I saw your cabinet fans. But even then, the heatsink and vent hole layouts are significantly different between the M-1.0 and M500 families. Certainly not as labyrinthine as the air path if you put a M-1.5/M-4.0 or a pro type in the stack, though! And it looks like you have the top amps pulling the lighter duties, anyhow.

Thanks for the clarification!

The amps are naked in the stack (top and bottom covers removed)

Aha! I must have missed that. Clever solution- going "commando" would drastically improve ventilation!
