Thanks Bradley...what's your watching distance? I have opened a thread in the home theater design and construction area...check this http://www.hometheatershack.com/foru...html#post73086

DO IT!

Go as big as you can on the screen, too. I run a 110" fixed frame screen (VuTec) but if I had to do over again would go a little bigger (as much as to 150"). I could never go back to those silly "little" screens.

That projector is getting good reviews so far. It sells in the U.S. as the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 1080 UB for about $2,699.

Hey Steve!

I decided to upgrade the display. I have been looking around and I found a 50" Viera Panny (Th-50PV70) middle-East10th generation model. It has a very good PQ, it is a 1366*768, but will accept 1080p (has a 1080P processing chip).

I am dreaming of having it at home, but I am afraid I will have to wait about 2-3 months...
Well, I changed my mind. I wanna enter the BIG PICTURE WORLD. I am now about to order a 102" Carada BW screen:raped: and the new Epson TW-2000...Just waiting for some more reviews of it.

Ilkka,

You were correct with your expectations... Running the amps at 2 ohm bridged didn't add a thing at all. It is about the same power as amps bridged 8 ohms (not a single db gain), but I didn't like the sound of the 2 ohm configuation... With some exageration I would say to my ears I felt the sound was a bit boomy and not as tight as the 8 ohm configuration.

Appearently, (as you told me before), this is the capability of the power supply, it will propably not exceed 2000W by much be it 8, 4 or 2 ohms

And therefore, I am just happy to have followed your advice and added to my equipment rack another amp

I sure believe you but why?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridged_amplifier

Because when connected in bridge, each amplifier sees half the load impedance. So 4 ohm stereo/parallel is same as 8 ohm bridged.

Why?
Because they are analogue attenuators, not necessarily very accurate. When connected in bridge, it isn't a problem because only channel A gain is active.

The EP2500 has eight 12000 uF caps.
Well, I know these amps are very similar, while the EP-2500 has a bit more caps, the power supply of the T-amp is slightly larger. Thanks for the info!

You can try it for sure. If you feel that 2 ohm bridged sounds better than 8 ohm bridged, use it.
I will try for sure...You know that I like playing with my toys

That would be same as 8 ohm bridged (power wise).
I sure believe you but why?

But the output level isn't necessarily exactly the same even though both gains are maxed out.
Why?

I have received and connected my new 2 KW amp. The subs are now connected/wired 8 ohms briged.
I have disconnected the fans but did not like the amps heating. So I decided to reconnect these fans.
When I opened the amp top cover to disconnect the fans, I was chocked when I saw the huge power supply as well as 8 * 10000 uF * 80V capacitors... (I don't know if this is big in the pro amps world though....what about the EP-2500 for ex.?? any ideas...

That would be same as 8 ohm bridged (power wise). But the output level isn't necessarily exactly the same even though both gains are maxed out. So therefore I would use bridged instead.

I have lots of headroom, and would not dream of more, but (just out of curiosity) would like to know what you think about the following:

- Running the amps 2 ohm briged, knowing that the amps will never be "a hair" hot when the 4 (variable speed) fans are running.
- Having the subs configured as a single 4 ohms sub, then feeding this 4 ohm terminal with both amps in parallele. What is the possibility of such a configuration if of course the amps are both at exactly the same output level (max for ex) and fed with the same split signal from the receiver.

Again, I do not need more power, but this is for the sake of understanding/discussion/curiosity...
