    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.

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

    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.
