    Yes, they will. Gracefully, might I add. Lots of heat and they are quite big mind you.

    And for you SDA guys out there who may be fortunate enough to bid and win these amps they can be strapped together and used with your SDA's. Straight from Bob Carver's mouth!!!


    Q: Hi Guys! Can the Neg Terminals be strapped together?, I have a pair of Polk Audio SRS 2's and they need Common Ground amps Thanks, Lasareath


    Aug-13-08
    A: Hi Lasareath, Yes. All you have to do is put the amps close together side-by-side, then connect the two negative terminals to each other with a short common wire. Viola! Bob Carver

    Ricardo, log in or join the Carver forum and all will be revealed. There's just too much to explain in one post. ;)

    One of these amps will be in a rig or three for evaluation at this year's Carverfest which Bob will be attending. Good times, man.

    I LOVE it very much!!!!

    I just hope that he makes a pair in November, because then the wedding will be done and I can find 6 grand!

    Then I can hook them up to my newly re-done SRS 2's with Mundorf Silver/Oil caps :)

    Why? Just because I think they are ugly; don't like the color, and that frontplate looks cheap, IMO of course. I bet they do sound beautiful, but they are horrible ;)

    I'll let you know what they sound like. About 40 some-odd folks might do the same. Preliminary reports from the cat that bought the first pair? Nothing but stellar reviews.

    F1's ears will hear them as well as a few Polk forum members, so I'm quite sure that you will hear some feedback on them. ;)

    Yep, I'll get to see what these babies will do for my Plats. I'm betting it will sound mighty good.
