Thanks guys,
I managed to find a power supply (12v 4amp) that fits. I did an on the fly swap between the psu's, I think that it is a bit louder, but again, not a huge amount of bass. What can I do to increase the bass??

Thanks

Nick

Or, going more in deep, speakers with an higher SPL.

OK, there are two things that strike me about these speakers:

The efficiency is 88dB@1W, so with your amplifier rated at 12W into 8 ohms (I am assuming they aare 8 ohms), you will get a little over 98dB before clipping. That's not too bad, I only get 101dB, but I sit onlly 3m away from the speakers. How far away are you listening to them?

The other thing is that they only have a 4" driver, so low bass is out of the question.

If you are happy with the sound apart from the lack of bass, a trip to the subwoofers section may be in order. With a decent sub and an active crossover, you might have the sound you want. Taking the bass away from the F1s will allow you to play them a little bit louder before clipping too.

HTH,
Brian
