Amp Question for Treo CT. Is 500 wpc too much?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I am migrating from Magnepan 3.7i to Treo CT in the next couple of months. I currently am using a Sanders Sound Magtech amp, 500 wpc @ 8 and 900 wpc @ 4.  Is this too much amp for the Treos?  It's an awesome amp for the maggies and was hoping to use it on the Vandies.  I do like it loud at times. 

Cheers

Unless you are going to crank it up to give your neighbors a listen, then no, it shouldn't be an issue.

Are you keeping the Maggie's? It would be interesting to compare the two. 

I have always had a desire to own Magnepan's but never had the space to use them.

Hi Stunami, you can not have too much power because you are in control of the volume control!  It is enough power to melt a few parts in the crossover if anything stupid happens but when taking care of your ears so this stuff will have significance in a few years you will be OK.  A bigger problem is not enough power because clipping does damage tweeters quite often.
