View Full Version : Amp and sub suggestions

07-19-2005, 12:32 AM
Ive got some extra cash to play around with... I sold my Profile amp and my Fosgate Punch HZ was a piece of **** to begin with, and is even worse now. Ive been bumping no bass for awhile, and it *****. Im not looking to spend over $200 dollars. As little as i can spend would be nice. I was planning on going with a RE RE 12", but i didnt think of the amp. Any one have something i should try that hasent been reviewed or anything before let me know. Wanting to spend under $200 actually, not looking for numbers, just some bump.

Well, I wouldn't expect to look for SPL numbers...in your house :D

Is this in home, or do you want me to move it?

It wasn't his trickery...he was mocking creater, who originally said. I still don't know why he (creater) said that.

Before i start looking, anyone have any ideas for a amp that puts out about 175-200 clean watts, or an overrated amp that does it?

alright dammit, i can never just do a job half ***. :wallbash: So now im doing my whole room over. I got some old ****** creative pc speakers now. I know nothing about home audio, as ive always just hooked up car audio in my room. Wanting to spend a few hundred on the system. I dont know what i need, 1 amp, 2 amps, or what kind of speakers. Any help would be nice.

Like you're going to see them when they're on the back of the sub cabinet, against the wall? :)

I dont know what i need, 1 amp, 2 amps, or what kind of speakers.

You need some sort of integrated amp or receiver, main channel speakers, and a sub/plate amp combo. Check out some of the other threads about 2.1 home systems, I've shared some good links for DIY speakers and receiver recommendations...figure on building the speakers yourself, putting the sub cabinet together, so the only things you'd need to buy are the receiver itself, the speaker drivers, the MDF of course, and a plate amplifier.

one amp can work...or 2 if you want separate for highs and lows...you need a reciever, EQ would be helpful...

you can use subs or just have some full range speakers dropping something a little low...you can use car speakers in your room setup...but i would just prefer pro gear...i dont know why but thats my preference...you can buy or build a nice box...building it would be nice to fit your taste...

you need something good for highs and mids....a horn would be nice...just get a nice horn driver and a 4x10 shell and your good...
