I need speakers for the 1.21 gigawatt amp I've been dreaming of...

I like it LOUD! (So I can feel it, because I can't hear good.) Please advise!

    :D :D :D
    But they may need to have a resistor upgrade. I'd suggest something on the lines of Duedorfmillshay's 2112 watt 60k ohms

    You need 2.42 gigawatt speakers for that amp, since they're stereo.
    All the cool guys know that.

    O'riley's has what you need. Just search for part number 121G in their website.

    If you just want loud as all hell go with some PA speakers. Cheap and powerful.

    I have done it with my tube amps and SDA’s... definitely a moment that makes you proud to have a setup like that. It was a holy KRAP moment.

    so -- reflecting upon the OP.

    1.21 gigawatts (1.21 x 10^9 watts) is only a little less than 71 dB more than 100 watts.

    I mean -- yeah -- that gives you some more headroom, but it may still not be enough for that techno bass or orchestral transients, you know? I mean, especially with low sensitivity loudspeakers, you know?

    ... and this is what happens when you try to use the CERN hadron collider with a pair of Infinity IRS Beta loudspeakers. Before on the right, After on the left.
