Original ALS: 4 ohms nominal; dipped to @1 ohm at certain frequencies; very difficult amp load, least efficient of the ALS designs, 4x12" woofers (honeycomb type), 4x30" ribbons. There was a Platinum upgrade available that changed out the 4x30" ribbons for 2x60" ribbons & swapped out the crossover. I believe the upgrade changed the nominal impedance to >6 ohms.

Platinum ALS: 8 ohm nomimal; easiest of the ALS loads to drive, 4x12" cone woofers, 2x60" ribbons.

Thanks for the update. I think Dave mentioned that he did an upgrade on his which is good. I can't wait to hear them!

I am suprised that you have not found a pair yet living in FL. They seem to have a lot of Carver equipment down there.
Some cool Carver stuff!

After I listen to the tubes on the AL5s mine may be for sale.
