    Class SQ Amps and "Fluid Fets" ???

    I have not found any post about this so was wondering if anyone knows anything about these Class SQ amps and "Fluid-Fets"? I noticed the latest MB Quart range has these properties...

    What is a Class SQ amp?

    Class SQ has got to be a marketing term. It reminds me of Pioneer's Class FD. I couldn't tell you what they mean by Fluid-Fets.

    Sounds like marketing snake-oil to me. Maxxonics and SQ don't belong in the same sentence, except perhaps "Don't use Maxxonics if you want any SQ" or similar. They are simply buying the same 20 year old technology out of the same Chinese sweat shops, just re-packaged.

    Someone prove me wrong, but really there's a handful of companies still doing R&D, and that's about it.

    For laughs do a web search for MB Quart Class SQ and read about their Fluid Fets and the "smooth like water" performance.

    Sometimes companies will come up with efficiency ratings that fall outside or close enough outside the standards that they go out of their way to patent (or just slap on a gimmick phrase) on their product to try to convince the market that their product is better than all the other products in that class, because technically it's this "new" class they created.

    Well its all the same, Marketing is just finding some way to feed idiot avg customer (no offense general public that's u) some line to make them trust their product more.

No. In the end, the answer is, always has been, and can only be... heat kills speakers. BUT, clipping increases heat generation, sometimes by a drastic amount. So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.
