I love amps :P

recon a Holton with a pair of 625Va Tx's and 250w into 8Ohm dual mono will do, have to remember the amps will come out to bat and hit 6's

Interesting

for the job on the ESL's there will be 3 x 2 channel amps used

the ESL's will get 1 (250 x 2) 

the low mid bass will get another (250 x 2)

The Subs will also get a 250 x 2

 

Nothing like having plenty of world class SS amplification

Can guarantee the Martin Logan drivers will hit a wall around 100 Hz, not to mention go very high impedance at these lower frequencies. The 18" low bass, Eminence Magnum and the Exidous Maelstrom subs for 30Hz and below may make this set up fairly good :) 

 

 

Plenty to do including building (completing) the Holton 050 set and setting up this alternate Martin Logan ESL to the PSE144

 

Fun times ahead.

Looking forward to having a listen mate!

After work today Joe. That's the plan, but will take a few hours of measurements and working out the best Xovers and PEQ  before making too many comments\

 

EDIT, the panels look nice, have been carefully examined with a torch and glasses for rips or perforations, these have been hidden away for quite some years apparently

Nice score on the ESL's. A friend has a pair and they do some nice things, though can get a bit bright on SS amps due to the impedance drop as the freq rises. Will be interesting to know how you find them after the horns. Bass texture for orchestral stuff is really great, they pressurise the room nicely once you get used to the different quality of the bass.

May be a good idea to get them outside and hung up first to see what they "really" measure like :thumb: before I get into the critique of reviewing the experience 

 

Going into this experiment without any expectation of the comparison (trying not to confuse my tiny brain) :)
