    damn, some of you guys have crazier server setups than a lot of medium sized businesses. what the hell do you do with all that? why does one need 24 individual ethernet cords? that said im totally jelly of all that gear, even if i have no idea what it does. my crappy samsung home theater in a box, while not providing very good sound quality provides plenty of volume, i can easily turn it up to extremely uncomfortable levels. i cant imagine how one would utilize 8 subs in a single room without damaging the foundation of their house.

    Because some people like to have every room in the house with ethernet, and an outlet or two on EACH wall of EACH room, cause you never know when the wifey wants to move things around and you are ready for any and all changes ;)

    I think the sales person tricked you when he said they could do 14kW, the power lead has a rating of 3.5kW according to the official pdf (which still is a hell of a lot of power btw):

    Unprecedented •• power density – The FP 14000 delivers a total
    of 14000 W (2 x 7000 W @ 2 ohms) in only 2U.

    You can't have more power coming out than you have coming in (if you did you just became the richest person on this planet).

    Not continuously, no, but speakers are dynamic. They do not draw a continuous load by nature, and this is especially true for subs as they tend to show their full might for relatively short periods of time.

    The input current takes care of what it can, and capacitors take care of the rest.

    A good deal of the engineering in amplifiers at this level goes into how quickly the amp can charge and discharge its capacitors.

    Christ, I know all about big inefficient toroids. They definitely have their places though. I'm running a Denon 5308 for my mains and surrounds which has a monster toroid and I love it. Before those LG amps, I was running 4 Marathon MA-5050s. My god they were heavy. They were making the racks I built bend. I'm also with you on highly sensitive speakers, my mains are around 104db and my surrounds around 99db.

    These were 3U units, weighed in around 80lbs a piece.

    As for the PS on the FP14000s, this is what they look like. LG did a lot of work on regulated switching mode power supplies. Super efficient.

    I'm ordering new 2U chassis x 2 for my amp chassis, as i'm re-designing them.

    I'm running 4 aleph Mini's 2 per speaker for bi-amping WAY OVER KILL for power but i love the sound of the mini's.

    I just finished my test pre-amp a B1 ( nelson Pass design again ) However in my last 10 years i've been stuck with my 100$ passive pot instead of a buffer pre-amp or a line-pre-amp.

    Probably not the compliment you migh be looking for (or even the manliest comment for the man cave thread), but where did you get that throw pillow?
