I intend to purchase a TAD CR-1 speaker, which has a low efficiency of 86 db and a 4 ohm impedance. Recommended amplifer power is 200 watts into 8 ohms and 400 watts into 4 ohms. I have heard these with Pass lab amplifers and liked the sound, although I am certainly open to recommendations from this forum.
My question is on the generation of amplifer heat. Somewhere on this forum, a poster said that he did not listen to his 200 watt Pass lab amps in the summer because they generated too much heat. Do others have this experience, not necessarily with Pass Lab amps but with any amps of similar power rating?
