    1 ohm amplifiers

    Out of interest - which manufacturers make amps that drive a 1 ohm load?

    thanks

    I have no tests, but understand Gryphon, Vitus should both drive those loads. No doubt there are a number of beast amps that will do so.
    Speaker Wilson X-1/SLAMMS / Velodyne DD18+
    Source Zanden 4Box Digital
    Amp CJ GAT 2 / Gryphon Colosseum
    Cable SC/IC / PC TA Opus Gen5/MM2 / PAD25th/Sablon GCUber
    Isolation Sandwiches Under: HRS/Stillpoints/Auralex Top: HRS/Artesania/Entreq/EAT/90kg Mass

    Accuphase rates their amps with 8/4/2/1 ohm loads.

    The H2O Audio M250 mono-blocks were designed, among other things, to drive the 1 ohm Apogee Scintilla.

    My Lamms M1.1 have driven my Scintillas beautifully

    It appears the new Pass A25 has "one ohm" potential. 100 watts at 2 ohms, 200 watts at one ohm. The hockey puck transistors have very high power dissipation.
