      Keep us posted, I'd try it myself if I had a clamp meter and a solid 4 and 2 ohm resistor, not fond of the idea of running sine waves through a sub right where she distorts. Just curious though what do you think will happen? Output stage clip at the exact same level regardless of load attached or do you think it might vary a little?

      Yeah all fair points. I guess the main thing that makes it so hard is the tiny, tiny SQ demographic. We want the best but how many SQ guys are there competing in Aus, and buying high level gear? 100? 200? tops? 

      What;s the name of this WA shop I'd love to look at the webpage to see what they're all about.

      AV-DC in Adelaide is my go to,
