Odyssey Khartago Monos & Thiel 1.5s ?

Boomzilla -- Mon, 12/28/2009 - 08:06

 Mulling over various possibilities, I was considering the possibility of the Odyssey products with my Thiels.  Since the Khartagos are rated stable down to 2 ohms, I thought they might be appropriate for the 4-ohm Thiels.  Additionally, the question comes to mind of whether a "good" 100-watt amplifier is adequate for the relatively low-efficiency Thiels or whether more power is needed for the speakers to sound dynamic?
 
Does anyone have experience with the Odyssey Khartago monos with low-impedance, low-efficiency speakers?  Your thoughts?
 
Thanks - Boomzilla

What is the sensitivity of the 1.5s? How big is your room? How loudly do you play music?

 Thiel 1.5s are supposed to be 86dB (1W / 1M).  The room is 25 x 15.  Medium loudness - no head-banging, but occasionally 95-98 dB peaks for very short periods.

 A good sense of humor makes it ALL sound better!
