  • Bash 300W vs 250W for 10" 4 ohm subwoofer.

    This is the subwoofer (it will have a PR as well) ; the box is about 30 liters.

    these are the amplifier choices...

    I'd just get this one, cause it's on sale.

    If you're not worried about, then I'd get the Bash.

      I was leaning towards the Bash untill a friend told me to get Hypex. Is there a huge difference?

      The Bash has 300W/4ohms for $150 the Hypex has 175W/4ohms. IN theory that is barely 3db but what about current delivery (subwoofers have high Le and hence these inductive loads need amps that can dump current at will to muscle the subwoofer around)?

      Is there a difference between the Parts Expres and OAudio versions of the BASH 300W? After all someone on diyaudio used this amp to drive the SEAS L26ROY 10" woofer.

        That driver is only rated at 150w?

        It looks like it could break 40 Hz in 1 cf, but it can go a whole octave lower in 3 cf. Why so small? If you're stuck with the 1cf box, the (SA240) boosted version should push you down below 30 Hz. In the 1cf box it's not excursion limited (like it would be in 3cf). It can take 150w down below 20Hz.

          Yeah, so the O-audio amp is probably better than the regular BASH amp for the same money. It's got more/better controls and IMO looks better as well.

          If you want to save some money, the PE 240 watt should have plenty of power since the sub is rated for 150 max.

            Siimple. Wife Acceptance Factor. :(

            I might be able to strech it to a 15" cube (13.5" inside) so a net volume will be around 30 liters. There will be a PR as well so it should go lower.

            Thanks. O AUdio BASH it is. Nice to have 300W on tap in that small box.

              Maybe it's time to start asserting the HAF (Husband Approval Factor)

              Seriously though, why don't folks use class D pro-amps. They certainly are getting more cost effective and come with built in crossovers .

                I don't know for sure that it is a problem with this specific amp, but I have read numerous threads where the AVR input signal wasn't strong enough for the pro amp. This required the purchase of the Art Cleanbox (or similar) to get the input voltage right. BTW, the amp you referenced seems an incredible deal for the $.

                  I have that amp. What really did it for me is that none of the competitors in the price range will send the lo pass for both channels. Makes it perfect to power a pair of subs.

                  ZZounds also offers a painless 4 payment plan (just billed to your credit card).

                    THat Crown amp is a find at $300. Too bad I have already wired my subwoofer location with RCA (Sommer Galileo).

                    That is rare. I have never had this issue.

                    Which amp, the Crown or the Bash?

                      If your willing to spend in the $200-$300 range......

                      How abaout the Behringer Inuke1000dsp, includes amp with built in DSP?
                      http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...ke%20nu1000dsp

                      Or the Oaudio 500w Bash amp includes parametric EQ and a switch selectable low frequency boost.

                        That Behringer amp seems overkill for what essentially is a subwoofer amp. I am hardening to the BASH 300W from OAudio. $159+$49 for shipping.
