Stereophile measured the JC1's power:
"...clipped at 545 into 8 ohms"
"with 1154 available into 4 ohms"
and
"no less than 4.2 KW into 1 ohm"

"Current output of 64.7A!"


https://www.stereophile.com/content/...r-measurements
Your JC1's have plenty of power to drive the Salon 2's to very loud levels. I owned the Salon 2's for over two years with the Pass Labs XA-100.5's and they would make them play to ear splitting levels. So no worries.

Best,
Ken

Not worries indeed. Buy the things and get on with your climb up the hill, and make sure you get a screaming deal on them because screaming deals are available. The Salon2s remain one of the world's best speaker bargains and will mate well with the Parasound bruisers you already have.

Can't wait to hear your impressions!

I purchased mine from Ken about 2 years ago. Great price, seamless transaction. Never a regret.

You know, I've heard the Salons served by a brute of a Bryston and by a big Classe and, for the life of me, I still think that my Ayre VX-5 Twenty (175 into 8 and 350 into 4) serves the Salons to SPLs that I have yet to explore. At the loudest levels tolerable, the the control over output is amazing.

I'm dubious about the calls for more and more power for these speakers.
