    My favourite new power amp! Seymour Duncan Power Stage 170

    @yek if I use a full range 12”, like the Celestion F12-X200, when it becomes available, then no tweaking is necessary?

    the Celestion F12-X200 is ceramic, includes XO, but only weighs 9.1 lbs., ~$175... If it sounds good, that’s hard to beat...just need a great mono chip amp. Lighter than the eminence neo coax types.
