Does anyone have any recommendations for places to buy sub amps? I've looked at PE, but I was really hoping to get a 1000w plate amp. I'm planning on powering my 15" Tumult w/ it.

ED makes one (http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_info.php?cPath=2_106&products_id=500), or you can look into this (http://www.oaudio.com/500W_SUBAMP.html) one. Supposed to be better than the PE one with settings. Do your research before you buy.

Try and run a search on it at avsforums.com At that price I would ditch the plate amp and consider the EP2500 for the same price and more power.

That's what I found out when I was looking for 2. Originally I wanted to get a crown xti 2000 for my subs, but just don't have the moniez right now. So I will go with the EP2500 for ~$350 instead.

I really don't need that much power...but that does look like a good deal...

From time to time, you can find a good deal on the Dayton. I paid $190ish for my BASH 500w.

i just ended up finding a rack mount amp for 200 bucks on the bay. you might just look into the rack mounts. there is a lot more to chose from.

I'm running a QSC RMX-850. Does 850 @4 ohms. If you keep an eye on it, you can catch a good deal on some of that stuff.

The OAudio will not do justice to the Tumult, it was tested at less than 500w rms. The eD plate amps are rebadged Keiga's and put our their rated power or just a bit more. The PE amps have been tested to put out quite a bit less than their rated power (search the AVSForum). I would either go the proaudio approach, or get the eD 1000w model.

the o-audio amps have been tested to do pretty close to rated power.

i use one, but honestly don't really recommend it. it gets the job done though.
