You do have a nice setup. How do you like the new AR9`s, and how do the Outlaw`s stack up for power? I know the old AR9`s were quite power hungry. Soaked up many a power amplifier!!!
The AR9's are no power hungry at all compared to their older breatheran, the Outlaw's are 200W mono blocks that sound very clean and smooth. Here are the specs on the AR9's below.
-Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price $1,300.00 (USD)
-Frequency response 32Hz - 23kHz +/- 2dB
-Driver complement 1'' dome tweeter, dual 5.25'' mid-range, 10'' side-firing woofer
-Nominal impedance 8 ohms
-Recommended amplifier power 20 - 250W
-Cabinet finishes Black Ash, Cherry woodgrain
-Dimensions 9.3''W x 37''H x 17''D
Here are some reviews of the Hi-Res line.
Very last bench test on the page.
