M.1-5t @ 4-ohms

Post by slick77 » Mon Sep 03, 2007 4:05 pm

I am looking into a pair of Thiel cs 2.3 speakers rated at 10 to 400 watts at 4 ohms dose anyone know what this M-1.5t amp can put out at 4 ohms? And do you think this will be a good match. I feel this amp has the juice to drive the 4 ohms. What do you guys think...Thanks for you help guys !!

Well, since the M1.5t will put out up to 600 watts for a "musically significant amount of time", my guess is it will put out at LEAST double what you speaker is rated for...

Do I feel it would be a good match? Powering those Thiels you shouldn't have ANY problems. See rabbits rating info. IMO I don't think it matters what others "think" whether or not it would be a good match unless they own/have experience with that particular setup (even then its still subjective). Your best to audition the speakers and amp combo (if possible) and make your own determinations. Note: I didn't think the M1.5t was a car amp :) (kidding, just noticed the thread you asked about this in)
