Which Amp for JBL L890 Home theater speakers? I keep blowing tweeters.

13 October 2013 - 11:57 AM

I have 2 large JBL L890 tower speakers that are 250W RMS each.

Currently I am using a harmon kardon ar3490 amp which is only putting out 120Wx2. So I am underpowering these speakers by half, and I keep having tweeter failure when playing at loud levels. I was told properly powering these speakers may eliminate this problem.

However I am completely clueless when it comes to power amps and crown seems to have so many different models. Are they only for mobile/professional DJs? Or would a crown amp be a good solution for 2 large home theater speakers? If so which model to go with? I dont care bout size, or mobility, just something to sit in the entertainment center.

Is there a better solution then crown for my needs?

I appreciate any help!
