Alesis, Samson, or others????
« on: June 16, 2004, 12:31:51 pm »

Looking for some good quality, quiet amplifiers to run some mids in home studio setup.  Don't want to spend a ton of dough.  I have seen these amps quite a bit.  Alesis 150, 300, and 500.  And Samson 170,260, and 550.  Any experiences?  How well do they do into 4 ohm loads also?

I'd rather buy USA made Carvin at that price range

Assuming this will be for home use, how many channels do you need? On the home side Outlaw Audio makes some very nice and reasonably priced amps in mono 5 and 7 channel. In commercial sound, QSC and Crown make some good multichannel amps.

For what its worth,

I will be using the amp to drive 2 2118Js per side.  Yes-home use.  The speakers I built are these drivers top to bottom-2118J, 2404H, 2118J, 2226H, 2226H.  I call them the fridges.  I use a plx 3402 for the 2226s.

well, noise will be an issue with the plx3402's so you may want to take a different tact here....

Would you consider using a D-75A, and three K1's?

Run your 2404H on each side one side per channel on the D-75, double up your 2118's on each side and run the two drivers on one side of a K1. Then double up your 2226's and run a K1 in bridge mode for each cabinet.

Quite and good power matching for all the drivers. Oh, and the loudest frickin fridge you've ever heard.
