8x60=480W is really a lot as ClassA I wonder , if this could be adapted. Would it be possible to adapt 6 x Pass F5 v3 (22dB gain) with +/-32V rail voltage (better distortion values) and cacode transitors (shielding against power noise). E.g. 2 x 10W tweeter channel 2 x 30W mid channel 2 x 100W bass channel If 2x100W bass is to much in Class A mode , the bass channel could be in Class D (Hypex). Total Class A power would be 280W. Or 80W with Class D bass modules. Too much?

I recently used two stock stereo F5 amps on the midrange and tweeters on my Orions. There was no problem with lack of power or clipping at really loud levels, which was a pleasant surprise.

How did the F5s sound on the Orions?
