I want a pair of xa200.5's, but have serious concerns about roasting myself out of the room! I'm wondering if they run hotter than my 2301's??? Anyone know?

Mike,

I have to believe the XA200.5's power consumption total of 1400 watts far excedes the MC2301's, but I believe your room and separate AC should take care of the heat.

Joe.......A pair of MC2301's draw 1320 watts at full rated output. At lower volume levels it is less, and at idle it is minimal.

Thank Dan. I could not find that anywhere. So just sitting there the Pass amps consume more than the 2301's at full output. I believe Mike is unlikely to crank his 2301's continuously so they will run cooler. He has a big room and it's AC controlled. He should be fine if a little warmer.

Joe.......

Mike.......


That was a typo! It's 1320 watts, not amps. Obviously I was daydreaming.

Sadly, we knew what you meant.

Mike.......I just performed an ammeter test on one of my MC2301 amplifiers. At idle with no signal, a single MC2301 draws 180 watts. Peaking 3.0 watts on the amp's output meter the MC2301 draws approximately 202 watts. Peaking 30.0 watts on the amp's output meter the MC2301 draws approximately 260 watts. I didn't go any louder because 30 watts output into the Anniversario's is rocking the room. This just gives you an idea of what a single amp draws. Both of my MC2301's are powered from a PurePower 2000, so the combined total for both amps is 520 watts current draw when the amplifier outputs are peaking at 30.0 watts. This means the PurePower 2000 is just loafing along, even at the loudest volume I listen to.

Thanks Dan. You're one step ahead of the boys at Mc....but you usually are (remember the MEN220)?

Mike,

How often does the fan run and how loud is the fan noise on the Classe CA-2300?
