Type 45 amps

Have got a hankling to try a 45 amp with the M7 (when it comes out of lockdown hell)

Was looking at the Yamamoto A-08s 45 power amp so has anyone heard one?

Am I being too optimistic that a 45 amp will work with the Direkts, they are 95dB and appear to be quite an easy drive with the border patrol though?

At 2Wpc I think you will be struggling

A friend of mine has the Yamamoto with Emission Labs 45’s, he also owns a Border Patrol SE300B and a David Wright 45 amp as well, he says he prefers the Yamamoto to both of them, he uses Lowthers in DIY cabs.

45 will give you approx 1.6 to 1.8 watts, 2 Watts max if you screw it hard
2 way Direkt is about 92 dB per watt based on measurements on hifitest.de

Bugger, will give it a miss if they’re only 92dB :frowning:

Use it as an excuse to buy massive horns.

Try a Topping TP10.

Are you selling one? I’ve got loads of money at the moment as I was saving for an audio note step up but the bloke decided not to sell it in the end.


I got a pm today asking me if I’d sell the S9. :smile:


I thought that was not sold long ago? You still got it then or did you not buy it back?

Id rather not say.


I asked for dibs on not buying that ages ago so tell him to join the queue.:rage:

He seemed like a nice guy
