I'm supposed to get my Pe 250 watt amp on Tuesday!!! They extended the sale price for me Woo-hoo!!! Now my question is should I still keep it wired at 8ohms with both of the voice coils or should I connect the voice coils in parrell into a 4 ohm load? Which option would give the best bang for the buck??? Thanks guys!!!

I just called about the availability of the product. The salesperson said that they were out of stock(probably due to the sale) and the price is back to $135. After they said that all I asked was if they could extend the sale since I missed it last week. They checked with their supervisors and they granted an extention but I had to order within the 12hr period. According to the email I got last night it will be here Tuesday!!!

If you're trying to drive two 8 ohm VCs, you can run each one to a seperate amp for an 8 ohm load, or series wire for a 16 ohm load, or parallel wire for a 4 ohm load. As Pat said, more power. I think the amp you mention is rated at ~180W/8 ohm vs 250W/4 ohm.

It is rated at 250W RMS at 4 ohm but I think during a bench test it produced 272W RMS at 4 Ohm. Talk about a powerful little amp! I bought one at the $99 sale price, even though I already have one, couldn't pass up that price. Just waitin' for money to buy a Tempest! :frowning:
