here is a link to a 3527S(not mine) :
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3077082771&category=39740&ssp agename=STRK%3AMEBWA%3AIT&rd=1

I have one of these dinasours, its 10 years old...

It still works of course, and I was wondering about this guys claim of 280 watts...(I've always heard it was underrated)

the back of the amp says it's 25 x 4 RMS

so I assume the 280 is a MAX rating.

I don't have my book anymore. I want to run it bridged to a pair of Boston Acoustics 6.5 Pro Series Speakers..off of an Eclipse CD8053 (8 volt pre-outs)

I also have Boston Z6 Components (a step above the Pro Series) for my fronts, and I was wanting to push them with an Alpine MRV-T420 (75x2)

should I flip them around?

is the 3527S so underrated that it would be more powerful than the MRV-T420?

I am going to try the Alpine's and if they don't do what I want them to do, I will then upgrade to a JL 450/4...but only AFTER I give the Alpines a whirl...

so the basic question is this, which should I run the Z6's with, and which should I run the Pro Series with...

the MRV-T420 or the 3527S?

thanks

ps, I used to run my 3527S 3 way to a set of Boston Pro Series 5 and a quarter's and a Cobalt DVC 10...

the bostons sounded just fine... (can't say the same for the Cobalt)

if there is anyone out there that knows what the old 3527S is, will it take 8V pre-outs?

my CD-8053 has 8 or 16V preouts, depending on how I set it up...

it's a shame that I probably won't be able to take full advantage...

280W means 70W x 4 @ 2 Ohms.
It's 35W x 4 @ 4 Ohms.
it's a nice amplifier, but only designed to take 4V pre-outs. I used to sell that amplifier, and installed several back in the day.

What you may want to do is look for a good 4 channel Eclipse amplifier.

doesn't the JL 450/4 take 8 or 16V preouts?

why do you suggest Eclipse?

the JL should be fine as well.
Eclipse makes terrific 4 channel amps for components, and they are matched to the Eclipse head units for line voltages.
worth looking at, anyway.
