    A week of reading this forum...and now there's an SVS 20-39CS on it's way to my front door.
    Can anyone confirm whether a 100W amp (in this case Adcom GFA-535II) is adequate power for this sub? It will be running off the signal from a Marantz AV9000.
    Good thing my SO takes bribes... [​IMG]
    Thanks.

    It will be fine. Just be sure the Adcom can handle a 4 ohm load.

    Norman,
    I expect you'll be on the forum soon telling us how amazed you are at what "only" 100 watts can do with your SVS.
    That's more power than most folks think, and you won't be pouring it all down the drain with tons of equalization. (that's how you get mini-subs to eeek out what passes for low bass...GOBS of power, most of it going to massive amounts of low boost).
    We have many customers using what amount to "fly-weight" amps and getting bass that's very clean and very powerful.
    You won't max out a CS sub with 100 watts but you can get the vast majority of its capability with that little power.
    Honest.
    Ron
