I was talking to someone about using amps such as Crown, etc. for home speakers and this is essentially what he told me: "For the love of mankind don't use a pro audio amp in your home! The Crown, Crest, plus Makie, QSC and other pro-audio amps are garbage for home use. They have way too much gain and offer way to little current. And they all have loud cooling fans. These amps are built to power horn loaded speakers that put out 100 db with one input watt. Horn speakers also need very little current to work as designed-so pro audio gear will always have tiny transformers and dwarfish current reserves (my Makie 1400i has 20,000 micro-farads of storage per side). A good home amp will have double that much. My 300 wpc amps have 140,000 mfd per side." Just putting this on here for discussion because I'm pretty much clueless when it comes to amps.
