    I recently bought some Mission 753f's and liked them so much I have just got some 754f's too. The 753's are now used as rears. I am using a Harman Kardon 5500 to drive them (5 x 85W) and both sets sound fine. However, I can't help wondering whether the 754's need more power. I remember one thread where someone was getting very little bass out of 753's and I thought that this must be due to a limiting amp. It could be that the 754's need more power than the 753's - I wouldn't know.

    The problem is that there is very little info out there on 754's. Does anyone have experience of these speakers and the effects of changing amps? I want to get the best out of these 754's so any info would be appreciated.

    150w with good current delivery to really make em sing. I have 250w monoblocs on the end of my 783s and they make a great combination :thumbsup:

    Yeah, I can imagine I might have to go that route at some time.

    Are you using one of the 752s as centre Thunder? This option did occur to me but the speaker would be asymmetric on its side and this might not go down well with the boss.

    Ah, it would be nice to do that but the plasma is too low down. I take it the 752 does well as a centre speaker?

    Yeah, its pretty clear and crisp as well as having better dynamic range than most of the shoe box sized alternatives :)
