That's a combination that usually doesn't happen. Last I heard Ed and Henry use Amp Camp Amps. I think they are about 5 WPC.
I've tried big amps, but to no real advantage. All they did was guarantee no clipping, a good thing, and over dampened bass.
Hopefully Ed or Henry will comment.

Ed had a big expensive Pass amp that was very nice.  I just received a 35 watts/channel tube amp for another speaker but don't plan to hook it to the Horns.

Not much help, as usual...  Smiley

Check out the AVA Ulravalve.  I really like mine.  Makes plenty of power and doesn't generate much heat.  The transformers are big and hardly get warm.  Great build quality.  A combo of solid state bass and tubey mids and highs.  Nice price...
