I just came across a deal for the Yorkville TX9s subwoofers,,, $1199./box. Regular selling price seems to average $1999./box. I've lusted for these subs for the last two years, but the lack of local availability, and affordability of a "complete" package, (including power-amp/processor), has steered me away. At this price however, I'm tempted to go for it.
Aside from the outstanding performance of these subs, is the fact that they're 51" tall. That's perfect for mounting my U15P's on top,,, which is something I can not do with my LS801P's (32" tall).
That said, I'm wondering about an amp and possibly a processor for these subs. Last year, my dealer had told me he'd have a used/re-furbed Crown I-Tech 8000(???) available, but that didn't materialize, and was one of the main reasons why I decided to go with the LS801P's.
Yorkville recommends the AP6040 power-amp with the TX9s. The price is roughly $1800. but it's VERY heavy. I'll start looking for a used I-Tech, but in the meaantime, is there something else I should be considering? I really haven't followed the developement of lighter/cheaper amps over the last few years, since all of my boxes are active.
I had told myself, "no mo' gear this year", but this is really tempting.
