That hasn't been my experience, but then I get mine from
Jon Ver Halen at Lowther America, and he certainly stands
behind his products.

lykkedk,

My old Musical Fidelity A1 could play them pretty loud...and thats not an especially strong amp.

So without question, i think the F4 should be more than okay to drive them. Reason, i'm pretty sure the F4 is much more stable when driving that load than my old A1.

And then you can bridge the F4 for even more juice

Only problem is something to drive the F4's to the max...

Perhaps Mr. Nelson Pass could give birth ( ) in the near future to an Pre that will do just that

sorry Papa.......my bad........I just forgot to mention that (to my knowledge) there are at least 3 distributors with long history in post-selection......Mau in DE,another guy in DE (I know....dementia) and -certainly- Halen in US...and certainly also Ivanek in HR (Hornet Hedlund......also author of "nastyuglylousy I'llnevertakethatinmylifeevenforfree" horn named "Veliki" (in our language that's "Biggie".....))

anyway.....there are few things in finishing (and I think on functional,not cosmetic thingies) which are long known for Lowthers;
that's pity, because I just adore that spks......

mebbe is problem in me ; I'm used to things I love are long lasting,primary from technological qualities in first place..........

there must be some problem with that pre in ykkedk's system.......at least I know that -with my spks with 94db/W/m I can take my pants off with ECL82 SE .....and that's ~2w........

or that spks are no good....

That does it, i'm a drooling mental retard.

Those are common specs for All-Focal driver 3-ways.
I've constructed a comparable DIY Focal (Jacques Mahul) design with about the same drivers. About the same outer dimensions, also 91.5 dB/Wm.
