A good friend of mine is third in line receiving a pile of Pro-Audio gear, passed along from people who didn't know what it was, but didn't throw it away. He has approached me about going halfsies for whatever I can get via ebay/craigslist. Most notable to me among the equipment is a Crown MacroTech 1200 amp. Would anyone suggest using this for home stereo or home theater applications? Its apparently VERY powerful. I was thinking it might be great for biamping lows or running subs. Whatchoo think?
Stereo mode (both channels driven):
675 watts into 2 ohms.
480 watts into 4 ohms.
310 watts into 8 ohms.
1300 watts into 4 ohms.
970 watts into 8 ohms.
620 watts into 16 ohms.
Frequency Response: ±0.1 dB from 20 Hz to 20 kHz at 1
watt (see Figure 6.7).
Phase Response: ±10 degrees from 10 Hz to 20 kHz at 1
watt (see Figure 6.10).
Signal-to-Noise Ratio: 20 Hz to 20 kHz: Better than
100 dB below full bandwidth power. A-weighted: Better
than 105 dB below full bandwidth power.
Total Harmonic Distortion (THD): Less than 0.05% at
full bandwidth power from 20 Hz to 1 kHz increasing linearly
to 0.1% at 20 kHz.
Intermodulation Distortion (IMD): (60 Hz, 7 kHz) Less
than 0.05% from 163 milliwatts to full bandwidth power.
Damping Factor: Greater than 1,000 from 10 Hz to 400
Hz (see Figure 6.8).
Crosstalk: See Figures 6.11,
