Slew factor: > 80
Freq response: 1Hz - 30Khz +/- 1db

FM Tuner
S/N: 76db
distortion: .2%
freq response: 20 - 15Khz +/- 1db
stereo seperation: 42db
capture ratio: 1.5db
Noise reduction: 7db
Multipath reduction: 13db

PREAMP

Cool cool....

You think I can use it to power a 12" DVC subwoofer with coils rated at 4 ohms each?

You should be able to drive the 4 ohm load, power should be around 200- 220 W/channel max.

Might be the 130wpc version , which was the original "Carver Receiver". The 150wpc (157 actually) version was sometimes called "The Receiver 150".

It'll do 4 ohms just fine. You have some fine co-workers.
