Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product in a Smaller PackageI had the larger version of this MTX speaker and it worked fine but I needed a smaller size so this was the perfect option. It works great.

Will a Topping TP30 Class T Digital Mini Amplifier work well with these speakers?

I am considering installing two of these speakers on my deck and would like to power them with the Topping TP30 Class T Digital Mini Amplifier. However, these are rated at 50W RMS while the amp only puts out 15W/channel. Will they sound way underpowered?
Asked by: Lukasz
The short answer is, "It depends." Do you like high volume in the mid-base region? Is your deck essentially open space or is it somewhat enclosed?Most Class T amps are exceptionally clean and transparent. For some listeners, this lack of coloration or distortion translates into a perception of lower volume because our hearing registers distortion as a kind of loudness.To be safe, I would recommend the TP22 or another higher powered amp. However, if your tastes for amplitude are moderate, the TP20 and MXT MP42B will delight you with sonic quality. They will be excellent for cocktail parties, neighborhood BBQs, and enjoying sunsets to your favorite music. Go with higher power, more speakers, and a subwoofer if your plans include dancing.Be sure to post your results when you get something set up.
