    Default Dreadnought wanted

    Okay, just picked up a BAT VK500 amp to power my week old to me, SDA SRS 2.3's. I think this will be a pretty good match but it is not a common ground amplifier so I thought I would check to see if someone had one they wanted to sell or had the transformer to build one that they wanted to sell. If not I guess I'll be looking to pick up a transformer from Avel. I know that there was a. Group buy on a little better one from them and was curious if someone had one laying around that they decided not to use. Thanks for the help

    I don't have one to sell, but one of my Dreadnoughts is made with a Toroid Corporation of Maryland transformer, and it works very well. It is only a 670VA transformer. They sell arger ones and deliver very quickly.

    2.3's or 2.3tl's? I don't believe you can use the dreadnought with the 2.3's. if the 2.3's are blade/blade then no you cannot use the dreadnought..

    The 2.3's are pin/blade.

    PM me if you are interested.
