    Re: Corvette ZO6 .........

    Corvette needs an extreme track focused version of the Z06 ŗ la rennsport like Porsche's RS versions of the GT2/GT3. The C8 could stand to loose 400+ lbs, the demand for such a car would surprise you...

    Using the high-level inputs on the XD series AGs I found the sub-bass took on the character of the main amp very well. You could easily hear the diff in bass character going from a 300B to PP tubes,...
