  • powering huge power hungry sub woofers ?

    what amplifiers are used to get the most from 18" and 24" sub woofers such as the S.I.'s ?

      For the 18"s you can get away with a Behringer iNuke NU6000 or a similarly powerful Crown. For the 24"s I recommend SpeakerPower amps. They're expensive, but performance wise they're much better than the iNukes in every metric.

        My guess: 15. His grammar is passable. His trolling is good.

            Definitely amplifiers from the pro audio market, speaker power, or some of the chinese clones if you are ok with risk and dont care about IP. I use an inuke myself due to cost. But its nothing special. Sent from my SGH-I337M using Tapatalk

              the SpeakerPower amps are definitely high powered ,appear to only play up to 120 hz , this seems to be low or is this where the subs and woofers need to pass off to each other ? didn't see huge transformers or are they a thing of the past ?

                What sort of pricing is a guy looking at with an amp board and power supply? Looks like they mainly OEM.

                    It's about 240 eros for both the 3kW SMPS and the amp each non-oem. If you only need about 1000 watts a
                    side one PSU can run 2 amps, these things are beasts, when I was testing a single channel it took out my
                    shops power before it clipped (@ over 1000watts) and I never heard dummy load resistors sing before!

                      It's unusual to run subs higher than 80Hz.
