Ever thought about monoblocks? Some 10 years ago when I started my BIG SE-project that is rebuilt and scrapped many times by now. I used/are using the 1627SE trannies from Hammond and too small mains trannies and somwhat bigger Hammond chokes. It is/was all housed on a Hammon 1444-18 alu-chassis. I guess the geometry of the box makes it easier to take up the load.

Hi, Personally I like mono-blocks and for my own stuff not build anything else. True you need multiple power trannies and chassis, but most of the other parts are not duplicated. I like the ability to put the amps near the speakers and a stereo amp is hard to cut in two to do that. Just a personal preference. I also don't want to need a hand truck to move the amps. :| 30 pounds each is sufficient. 60 or so would be a chore.

Good Listening
Bruce
