    What is in your boxes?

    Having just received my 700B Saturday.....I am wondering what you guys are using for speakers after a full mod. I am running a 400 on a pair of BW's that sound very pleasing in the sweet spot. But with 350+ watts on tap....I am afraid they aren't up to snuff. I am not opposed to building my own......I have a nice set of home brew bookshelf speakers with Dynaudio 5 1/4's and 1" tweets on a little Luxman in my office that throw a huge stage. I am looking real hard at Madisound at the SB12.3 speaker kit. My main listening area is a big open basement so space is not an issue. I am just curious with what you guys are using before I embark on this project this winter. I listen to just about everything but opera....but my main catagory would be rock. So......what are YOU using and what makes them special to you?

    I'm using OHM I speakers.

    I love them. Had them since 1980, purchased with a PL700II. I'm sure there are better, B&W come to mind, but I'm happy with them and they can handle the PL700 without a problem.

    Altec Model Three cabs, M3 crossover, Corona 10" and Jensen domes.

    Polk Monitor 4s stock

    Marantz Imperial 5s stock

    Pioneer CS-K somethings with stock 8", 70s FB 5"cupped mids, 12" from CS-88? and Onkyo domed tweeters pulled from a torn-up pair of CBS Masterworks wedges, one of the original Pioneers went kaput. Live crossovers for that model, sound better with the Onkyos.

    Rebuilt/brewed Infinity-2000s? Pioneer FB full range 8s from CS-06s, OEM midranges and Foster square plastic tweeters.

    More but I've been up all night.

    Just took a read of the SB12.3 for you.
    https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.co...idrange-3-way/

    They spec at: Recommended amplification: 50 W 250+ W per channel
    and Minimum 4.3 ohms, Avg. 5-6ohms

    Keep in mind your PL700B can pump out about:
    350 w/ch at 8Ω or
    467 w/ch @ 6Ω or
    560 w/ch @ 5Ω or
    700 w/ch @ 4Ω <--- to be safe, this is where I'd be looking at a minimum for a speaker with a 4.3 Ω rating.
    That's driven 0 -20k, at clipping I've seen it rate at 450w @8 Ω, so think big.

    I think you could easily over drive them.

    There you go! I was very impressed with 801F's at the time. 808's are very nice too.
