Can Aleph 3 drive 15" 97dB woofer?
 
Greetings.

Would you expect an Aleph 3 would be able to control a pair of 3-way loudspeakers using 15" woofer in the bass, but with high sensivity (97dB)?

Does the fact of the bass driver being large (15") imply a high power amp? Even for a high-sensivity one? (97dB)

Thanks and regards!

I don't see a problem, but the stock Aleph 3 is happiest with
8 ohms or higher.

Thanks for the replies!

The impedance of all the three drivers will be 8 ohm, therefore I will give the project a Go!
