    Do you guys think it would hurt an Eminence Omega Pro 18 to push 700 watts into it full range? its mounted in a front ported cab tuned to about 34 Hz, with around 7 or 8 cubic feet of airspace in the cab. ive done it before, and it sounds pretty good (not a lot of highs, but thats what im going for here), but i havent run it for any extended amount of time like that. I was just thinking maybe i could lose the 210 cab, save myself some effort, and increase my volume and low end, without spending any more money on another poweramp. (R600 will bridge at 4 ohms to 700 watts, but will only run my 210 +18 setup at 500 watts). i am thinking of adding another poweramp for the 18, but thats gonnabe a while. any ideas for that? i was thinking a carvin DCM 1500 or 1000. (4-500 bucks) but im a college student, so money is tight. am i going in the rigt direction by trying to increase the power output to my 18 at all costs??

    Deja vu all over again. I thought this topic was explored at length in another thread.
