If you love prog rock, then you are probably into guitar tone, then you just may be looking for the warmth of a tube amp. Trouble is... which one. I wish I had 5K to spend on an amp:)The B&W's are a bit on the chunky side to take with you to a HiFi store to test drive amps, so perhaps call to a store with your a few of your favourite CD's/records and test drive a few tube amps with whatever speakers they claim could keep up with the 802's (there may be none:)) to at least short list yourself a few amps that you would like to try on the 802's. then get them to bring out that short list of amps back to yours, and trail em in your lounge. Probably a good idea to ring around first and see if you can find a shop that will agree up front to do this, but is the best way to buy gear. I would do it for you! You are ready to spend $5000 when all said and done, so explain to them if they want the sale, this is how its gonna go. It is impossible to trail anything properly without it being in your listening environment. Hope this advice helps, I have been repairing amps for HiFi shops my whole life, and the good ones will work with you in this way. Cheers

I just connected two sets of 901'a to Sansui G901 receiver. The sound is TINNY no bass at all. I've tried different connections and nothing seems to work. I've used two different EQ from bosse series

Either there is NO bass on the recordings (if you listen to it with headphones does it have bass?)'ve wired them out of phase. Connect only one(1) Bose 901's to just one side. Is there bass? Then connect the other side. IS there bass? If not reverse the phase (+ /- connections) and see if the bass comes back. Once that is done and there is BASS, then add the 3rd and then the 4th speaker. .Are you sure your Sansui can handle a lower than 4 ohm load???

I have EP2500 amp i want to use it to push 6 tops, what should i switch it to? one channel must push 3 tops and the other as well pushing 3 tops.

OK, you can use ep2500 amp to power 3 tops each,But the only challenge is that you are about to over load your amplifier. might get hot too fast .

You can use a cooling system to make it not too hot..It also depends on how the event your using it for...Using 3 EP2500 amplifier to drive three 6 top, using two top for each amplifier. Just a suggestion.

Using 2 amplifier, you will need to drive on one channel to drive 2 tops, and 1 top for the other channel.

That will do. But make sure you turn on the volume of the amplifier to the max volume ,so that it will be able to work properly for your tops...

Because one side of the amp lights up red and the other green

One side is in protect if your wired in stereo.The other side is working fine.You have to take that to an experienced electronics technichan that deals with pro audio.It will cost you 40+ dollars for a diagnosis but that amp is probably dead.I would suggest save up for a crown or qsc amp.

Yamaha DSP-A3090: All video settings trip unit and it turns off

Is the first set "stereo" settings and the 2nd set "surround" settings?
If so that may mean that the surround speakers arent all connected right.

If you are not well practised at soldering I strongly suggest that you get someone that can to do the soldering for you. Good Luck
