WTB: TFM-35X Amplifier

Post by Butch » Thu Nov 24, 2011 1:57 pm

Looking for a 2nd amplifier to bridge with my existing TFM-35X.
I thought I would check here before purchasing off ebay.

Thanks

Aren't those only like 150 watts max? They'll deafen you at 100 watts....wtf do you need that much for???

BTW, bridged amps generally don't sound as good. More power, sure...but at a price.

I'd ditch the 35x, sell it off or pass it on and get a TFM-45 or 55, you'll be much happier. I'm really not impressed with the 35x, I've had a handful lately and honestly my Sunfire Receiver at 200 watts x2 sounds better and goes louder. :?

Agree, I just sold one, was not impressed. Put it in service with my ALiii speakers, biamp mode. TFM25 pair on the ribbons and woofers and thought I'd try the 35x for some more juice on the woofers. Nope, some deep bass tripped the internal breakers and shut the amp off a couple of times. The TFM25 was much better.....but still not enough power.
