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... :yikes:
DROOL! :T 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 :D

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!

Looking for some classic vegas... The old school ones with the orange trim around the woofer.
Check out Craigslist or Audiogon.

I have a pair of D-9's from 1989-ish. They have 15" woofers, 2, 3" mids and a horn loaded tweeter, with mid/treb tone controls. I was a teenager when I got em, and there was nothing cooler(to me). ...salesman tried getting me into an early gen accoustimass. I laughed so hard.
I don't know what I'm gonna do with them, but I did put em on eBay once so I might be ok to sell them. The surrounds were intact when went to check them but, once I pushed on them to test their integrity, it was made known why surround kits for them are cheap. Where are you at?

Actually thats the "small" one. How about 10000 watts x 12 featuring not 2 but 6 30kw toroidal transformers. Speaking of transforming this pic is of it in its "open" profile, it will close up into a 12 sided cylinder. Only weighs in at 3300lbs. A paltry $2m


I'll take 2... Should be good enough for Atmos. Just need to win the Lotto, and rewire my house first. :sneeky:
