    The Z's love power. Less than 100 w rms each would insult them.

    Where is BA's outlet store?

    There was a time when they didn't sell online, only through distributors. I guess things change...

    ide be underpowering the components if i did that wouldnt i?... seeing as it only puts 300 watts x 1 @ 2ohms mono...
    my z6's are rated 200-400 watts EACH... i thought getting 2 BA amps that put out at least 600 watts x 1 @ 2ohm (1 amp powering the front and rear left and the other powering the front and rear right) would be my best option.... feel free to correct me or improve my ideas.
