  • Hypex Plate amps

    Does anyone own one besides me?
    I own an older model but, it is a very high quality unit. I highly recommend them.

    I just found out Madisound sells them from the "thin sub" thread. No reviews though.

    I bet they're awesome. I use Hypex UcD180ST amps in my truck and they are incredibly powerful, high noise rejection which is especially critical in a 12v application and tiny, I can fit EIGHT Hypex modules in a 10x10" footprint. That is [email protected] in that tiny space!!!

    Currently building an active speaker system using Hypex 100 and 180 modules

      All Hypex products are excellent. I think most people shy away from the sub plate amps due to the price, and IMO a Hypex amp is a bit underutilized if it's only driving a sub.

      If I ever had the need to build an active speaker, the AS2.100 would be on my list for sure.

            This is what I have:

            Not 100% sure what the power supply looks like but it is an incredible amp. Virtually noise-proof in even the worst environments and fits anywhere, I love it. Not cheap but compared to the $2k Brax X2400.2 I'm comparing it to it is a steal lol.

              That's a great find.

I have not found any credible research showing that most of the differences we hear among loudspeakers cannot be explained by examining these two variables." -Alvin Foster, 22 BAS Speaker 2 (May, 1999)
