    Default A Simple Yes Or No?

    Is a single Harpoon enough power for two sets (4) REV8's?

    No more than a 1 sentence answer please!!!

    I don't need, or want, page long answers trashing each brand and for this to turn into a big fight again, ok? I just want to know if its enough power.


    (I've been waiting since September when I ordered my 4-XM9's and Harpoon, amp came in long time ago, they said the 9's got lost. They've re-ordered them twice now but told me they have no idea when the 9's will be back in stock so they are ordering me REV 8's instead. Those are in stock an I should see them next week.)

    Try one as long as it won't damage the speakers if you don't like what one gives you then add the second.

    Not bashing any products. Just telling it like it is.
    The Exile Harpoon amplifier has been tested by an independent lab with over $50K in sophisticated test equipment at 2 times 370 watts into a 2-ohm load at 1 kHz at 1% total noise and distortion with a 14.4 volt supply. These are CEA2006 standards for measurement.
    With quantity four 4-ohm Wetsounds Rev8s that would be 185 watts rms to each of the four speakers.
    The Wetsounds Rev8 is rated at 200 watts rms (continuous power) which is an indication of the thermal rating. That's pretty close.
    I sure hate to disappoint everyone but IMO that combination will work okay.
    Will you get all the 14.4 volt power in a boat? No. Because you will not develop 14.4 volts.
    Most amplifiers will drop a minimum of 25 percent of their 14.4 volt power with a 12.5 volt supply. But that 25 percent drop represents only a 1 to 1.25 dB level in output which is barely audible under ideal conditions. So we are in the game.

    Always attacking. Always attacking. Why? At least get your facts straight. That's the longest yes or no, i've read in the thread. And you still didnt say yes. Or no. lol. It's cool.

    knowing the history of this forum, I'll take that as a YES from David.
    looking at the specs that mike threw out, I'd run it on my boat. knowing that there are people on here that are running both prducts and very happy with each, I can say that I believe that combination would put a smile on my face..

    nice thing about audio.. if you are not happy in the end, theres enough of a market to sell either amps or speakers and go down a different road or add a second harpoon(hello hearing test)..

    either way be sure and post up what you end up with and your subjective opinions of the results..
