I have 2 crest audio 5.0 amps for my 6 t60s dual lab 12.
Now ive been told that i would have to wire series due to the larger voltage output.
So i am going to be doing that very soon.
I do plan on getting 2 more t60s in the next 6 months. if not sooner.
I plan on having around 10-12 in my final setup.
It's not just because of larger voltage output of the amplifier, it's also about trying to manipulate impedance loads to maximise cabs per channel, and reduce amplifier strain.
It was also said to wire the cabs internally with serial drivers, and connect those cabs in parallel.
The Crest 5 amplifier specs say, using 20Hz-20Khz output figures, that with 2 ohm per channel loads, that output is a max of 2250W, or 67V.
Could you use three cabs per channel? Yes.
Should you use three cabs per channel? No.
Your new investment (eg the Crest 5.0 amps) will work for much longer and with less strain if you use a maximum of 2 cabs per channel. 3 cabs per channel is starting to flog the amp to death.
Initially, in the other thread I think, it was said the Crest 5.0 was capable of 105V. Turns out the spec sheet says maximum voltage swing is 105V. Please note though that's different from what the output figures say...
