The lab12 driver is 5 ohms with a music power rating of 800W. A nice round number would be 1200W for the amp to allow headroom for your limiter. That's 1200W per cab. two in parallel make 2.5 ohms. Most good pro amps can do that per channel. So you're looking for 4 channels @ 2400W each. Welcome to the 10K club!

A standard Labhorn uses 2 Lab12 drivers per cabinet, doesn't it?
So need to double up Davy's numbers?
