At 220lbs each / 440lbs for the pair, the Pass Labs X1000 class A mono blocks can output 1000 watts RMS into 8 ohms, 2000 watts into 4 ohms, 4000 watts into 2 ohms.

The best part is you can snag a pair of these in excellent condition (9/10) from Audiogon for only $10,000. Original retail is $24,000.



I guess you'll need a forklift to get them in your AV rack...
DROOL! I've always wanted a pair of these. Nelson Pass is the man!

Sometimes I run across some really weird or unusual... or maybe it's rare or amazing... either way it's interesting to see some of these things.

If you find something that fits... copy the image here if possible.

Big speakers always fascinate me...

Check out these JBL 4350 Studio Monitors going for 11 grand over at Audiogon...



I like the looks of those for some odd reason

Re: Rare, weird, unusual, amazing and/or interesting...

That would definitely do the trick. I can't even imagine that on 11! Gotta hope for good neighbors.

It reminds me of younger days in a rock band. I had this massive set of cabinets with and heads all connected together, because I was testing the setup (borrowed equipment) for a weekend gig.. Needless to say, it was being heard over a mile away (from inside my house with all the doors and windows closed)... Ah, great memories... cool factor 10, hearing afterward 0, experience -magical!
