I know that the Crown is far far superior in most aspects, but input sensitivity is an issue for me. I am currently using the BFD as a boost for my sealed 1503's. On some loud bass hungry passages, the BFD starts to clip (I am using 16db boost at 20hz...mind you, I am using the BFD as a psuedo linkwitz transform). To avoid this, I would have to turn down the source signal(Onkyo 676). The problem is that I already have the amp (DCM 600) a -0db (ie max sensitivity), so I can't compensate with turning up the power amp anymore. will the Krown K1 offer a greater input sensitivity than the carvin DCM600? having theBFD clip before coming close to clipping the K1 would seem like a waste of good power. Any input would be great!
