General Comments
i've had 4 of these on my HT for about 3+years now and must say that i'm still loving every minute of these. but if you really want this speaker to show it stuff you MUST bi-amp them and only then do they come to life otherwise-so-so- i'd say...all are bi-amped with 4outlaw monoblocks 200wpc on the bottom and 7125 outlaw amp 7@ 125wpc on the mid & top end.. with a outlaw 990 pre/pro and after the speakers are good and broke in , that's when you can really give these bad boys some power and they can take it the more the better, again the room you have is almost as important, with these i agree with another review on placement of the alpha 50's .. best is at least 3-4- feet away from walls and then with biamping watch just how much thump you'll get from these so call" bottom end missing "speakers!! of course i also run a Rane THX44 equalizer to aid in room tuning which is not always done anymore... bottom line i have 8 of the alpha 50's and use them in 2 HT set -ups and they are a fine speaker if you can still find some.. put with the alpha 37C center and a alpha 1200s sub{or 3} and 2 alpha 20's for rearbacks.... your place will rock i know be sure to take care of vibration which can and will effect the sound so iso everything!!! with vibra podswith superballs on them....yeah laugh it's the best there is try it ...super balls??? wallmart.....vibra pods on line.....do it....take care and have fun.............
