Anymore questions Wabbit ? Blow any fuses lately ? #-o #-o #-o


Not in the past 3 days...I'm gettin' a handle on exactly how loud I can play them without actually poppin' a fuse... O:)

No Way !
Don't tell me I'm going to have to have you "Check Your Spelling" from time to time. #-o :p :lol: ;) Just having fun Geeez.....................

Anyways, I can't wait to get my one ribbon fixed so I can see what those M-500t's will really do with the AL-III's bi-amped. O:)

Will you be biamping vertically or horizontally? Does the M500t "steer" power between channels?

What this originally meant, with the models that had an inverting channel (and therefore no need for a mono switch) was that since each channel draws current from an alternate half of the AC cycle their rail voltages don't compete with one another. It's not so much power being steered as it is rail voltage independence.

The 1.5 and I believe 4.0 were allowed to produce up to 600 Watts for 6 seconds with an integrator circuit; again, not so much borrowing power as making use of the high rail voltage for rms rather than dynamic output.

Enjoy!

Thanks for that explaination Rich, another piece of the puzzle finally fits into place in my mind as to how these actually work.

The way I'm running right now is one 500 running the woofers and the other running the ribbons. I started out with one amp running the left and the other the right. It seems to sound better the way I have it right now.
