Rogue audio Mono blocs with LSi’s

Hi all

I wanted to know if anyone had experience with Rogue mono-blocks (120 or 180) and LSi 15s?

Would these Amps have enough power to run them efficiently?

Use would be for HT and music.

    I have the M-120. They have held up against any Infinity RS series I've thrown at them.

    Nice amps... go for it.
    The Gear...

    I had a pair of m120’s that were upgraded to m180’s. They were nice but I found two issues with them.

    They ran to hot for my listening room. The heat in Texas and the amps just did not work for me.

    I could also push them to the extreme where they would start to compress the soundstage.

    Don’t get me wrong they were very good when the volume was kept to a moderate level in the winter.

    I've had stock 180s for 5 yrs now. However, no experience with them and the LSi's.

    I've never noticed them running hot until this summer. I normally don't listen in the daytime, but this summer I have, a lot! Like 10-12 hours a day.

    For my smallish listening space, they have tons of power feeding Salk HT2-TLs

    The only critique would be that the noise floor could be lowered

    That said, after 5 yrs. I'm ready for a change and will put these in the flea market

    ps If you space rack is not large, these have a fairly large footprint, IMHO 7x14x20 deep.

    I have them mounted sideways on the top shelf so I can see the glow of the tubes and adjust bias easily. Installed straight ahead, the tubes are concealed and bias meter not readily accessible
