I have just bought an audi A5 with bang & olufsen system. I want to run a JL 12W6 off a Genesis DMA. Do you think the bit1 would be the best way to do that?

I've no answer to your question, but I do have two questions of my own for you, if you'd be so kind...

1) Why do you choose to use a DMA for subwoofer duty?

For those not familiar with the amp, here you are...

Genesis Series 3 DMA

2) I notice the remarkable list of gear in your sig... ODR, Focal, Genesis, etc.,... would you be so kind as to post pictures of your system?

Thank you. :)

I'm also shocked that you would use a DMA for subs when you have a DMX on hand. The DMA is one of the few amps that I still lust after for tweeters. I definitely think a Bit 1 would be overkill just for that.

Well, I'm not "shocked", but I am curious... ;)

They are extraordinary amps, aren't they...? :)

Kevin, I haven't heard them, but based on what I have read they do seem delectable. :) I assume that the OP wishes to bridge the amp and take advantage of the 500 available watts. But, like you, I am curious as to why he would devote such an amp to playing the sub-bass.

Well as per my sig I've been running very high end SQ system for a while now.

I have just bought the A5 and am going over my options. Obviously I can go for the full blown install but to be honest Ive lost my passion for the super complex system.

As a result I am thinking of just using the stock system which is very good with a sub. I think the Velodyne is too special to run in a system like this so thought I would just have a reverse mounted W6 in the boot off a DMA behind a perspex screen or something like that.

Why the DMA and not DMX, because I cant bear to part with it, I love it like a child and I figured 500 RMS bridged would be plenty to run the sub.

Well, I can certainly understand not wanting to part with the amp... :)

And thank you for the pictures of your install... a reserved / stealth approach (my favorite) with fantastic gear and very nicely done. :D
