As a Lentek monitor owner I'd say IMF mkIII's would work happily with a Quad 405 up to the TL's maximum spl of around 97dB.

Using bridged Amcron DC-300A's or even bigger pieces of iron with big TL's isn't about the wattage but the high damping factor controlling unruly drive units.

Regarding the ESS Transtatic, get the ESL panels and dump the B139 bass section (ELS goes down too low and the B139 has a horrible resonance around 1kHz) for a IB box with four B200's crossing over around 3-3.5kHz, or stick a good midrange in the system from 350Hz to 3-3.5kHz.

that's cool. i actually didn't own the 405-2 when the MKIII were up for sale. i knew the macs culdn't drive them too well, so that's why i passed. i still should have bought them in retrospect though. probably could have had them for $300USD.

they are pretty huge though. and if i'm going to go HUGE, i'll try and get my friend to trade me his Acoustat model 4 for my KEF 104/2. the acoustats are at his girlfriend's house because they are too big for his place. she might want the smaller 104/2. we'll see.
