    I dont think you would notice much of a difference, especially since youve got such a high quality amp anyways. 200watts is inaudible by the human ear.

    ya, to achieve at least a 3 db gain they say you have to double the wattage

    Yes- support capitolisim buy buy buy!

    And hell, if 200 watts floats your boat, float on brotha! You might find an amp with that much power and better SQ- I might suggest a PPI PCX2200. 800 rms, lots of toys and goodies- about 300 on eGay.

    If 200watts is inaudible why do people ***** so much when something is overrated?

    ??? Probly cuz most people think that that little amount of wattage makes a difference, which it does but only when being metered (and its still a very small amount) u cant actualy hear it though which in my mind, thats what counts

    leave it, if you want to try a voltage boost in signal, but do not send more power to them, Mike of SoundSplinter reccomends against putting too much power to them
