I guess I would need some advice as to whether run 2 amps or just one. I was reading on here about veritcal bi-amping or bi-wiring.

I guess I just want to get the best sound possible out of my speakers and honestly I'm just not sure how to do that
For a couple of grand, you can get some Silver 7's or 9's if you catch them for sale. That should satisfy your quest for power. :) 8) :)
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

Ok.

Tried resizing.

Hopefully they are a better fit.

So...could I run two 7s or 9s? If so, then what do I do with my 4.0?

Thanks for resizing the pics, much better.

For a couple of grand you can get a really good amp that will do them justice. I'll throw a few out...in no order

BAT VK-500 with BAT PAK (a man's amp)
Sunfire 600x2 (sounds better than the 7t's or 9t's)
Krell KSA 200 S (pure class A bliss)
Belles 350A (rock solid)

Musical Fidelity A5.5 (SS integrated)
Musical Fidelity Nu-Vista M3 (tube/SS integrated,, very nice)
what do I do with my 4.0?
Sell it.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.



In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Thanks for the suggestions. I will look into them. So would it be worth my wild to get two?

what do I do with my 4.0?

Sell it.
I guess I could put it in my garage or somewhere else. Like some other OCCDs have done...lol

So Could I get by with something Like this?

Woud this be a good fit for ALSs?

I'm thinking about saving some money and then when tax time comes just splurging on a real nice amp. I know some people use two amps or more in their set-up but I could achieve alot with this amp or something similar.....yes?

Yes, that'll do quite nicely!
