(((( Deal of a Lifetime ))))

Well guys looks like it's safe to go public with the deal of a lifetime I just finalized tonight.

Looks like I am the new owner of a Lightstar Pre, and (4) Lightstar Ref. 1.2 amps.
Just finished a deal for the set tonight. The only downfall, is the amps are in (kit) form. They will be my next major hobby project. I have to built the aluminum chassis, and install all the transformers, boards etc.

Finally got my 1.21 Gigawatts bitch !!!!!

Hey Ray.... Guess we get the start our own little club now huh?
Lightstar, Lightstat, Lightstar, Lightstar, Lightstar

Can you imagine what this Rig is going to look like ??
It's going to have to support about 500 pounds of power.
"The Tower of Power" Should be able to run the "Wall of Amazing Power" at CF 08' huh ??
@ 8-Ohms that's 2,400 watts
@ 1-Ohm, that will total 19,200 watts...

NOW WHAT?!?!?

OCCD my ass... that's just pure greed !

Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it... because nobody else will.

1.21 Gigawatts? That's 1 billion, 210 million watts!

Can you get those cool meters?

wow

Sounds like you'll need to put in a 220 breaker in for all that power TEEHEE =D>
One day we will have to make it to carver fest to hear that...then I can convince my hubby that I need 1 horse power (that is aprox 750 watts) on each speaker, That would be nothing in comparison to what you are building, have fun with your project.

Hey there! Another Canuck! I'm starting to think that there are more of us out there than I imagined!

at 1.21 billion watts, you'll need a 10 million amp breaker.

Actually, the IDEA for the FC was thought up in 1955; it wasn't actually manufactured until the 1980s... ;)

BillD, can you get a 10 million amp breaker at Home Depot or does Lowe's carry them??
