    Any reason not to go with a pair of US Amps?

    Thinking of a Merlin MD2 for my pair of RE HC 12"s at .5 ohm
    Also thinking about a MD42 for an active setup with XXX mids and tweets to be decided on later.

    Any reasons not to go with these?

    Re: Any reason not to go with a pair of US Amps?

    Anyone have an idea how underrated the multi channel amps are?
    The XXX mids rms is 200, the md42 is rated at 125 at 2 ohms......I figure its a bit underrated.......
    Should be good enough, correct?

    I got my Md2 hooked up today and it sounds great. I can't speak for the other amp, but I bet it will be just as good. Go for it!
