Duane sounded a little concerned about the amplifier I am using because it is a beast. The PPI PCX 4125 can put out 500 watts each to the Addictions, which is too much. But I keep the gains down some and have never had an issue.
But he says now I can turn the gains up.
You couldn't go wrong with the 485's, but I think I got a smokin' deal for under 1K. I will be sure to post a review.
