    need help deciding on home audio setup

    ok...im lookin at this amp right here for my room. http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=248-745

    700wrms x 2 @ 2 ohm or 1400wrms x 1 @ 4 ohm(bridged)

    first off, before i go any further, is that too much power for subs in a room? keep in mind, this is NOT for movies/tv at all. its strictly for rap music only, hooked up to my stereo reciever. i was just really loud bass in my room. so please no one tell me to "just buy a home theater system"

    second, if thats just too much power and its like pointless to have it in a room, how much power u think i should have? im doing 2 18" MT's in my car, so you can tell i just like loud bass.

    ill see what people post from this, and then ill post the rest of my questions. thanks in advance.

    what subs are you gonna run?

    if they can handle the power the Europower is a good amp for the price

    also if you pricematch parts express at musicians friend they offer free shipping so you can save a few bucks

    Re: need help deciding on home audio setup

    That's going to be really loud if you run dual SE's. But, I guess you want loud and there is nothing wrong with loud lol.......

    What is the rest of your system?

    Re: need help deciding on home audio setup

    I am running a Rockford 1000WRMS at 2ohm on my type-r 12 and it shakes the electrical wires and plumbing in my walls. DONT do a sweep from 100hz to 10, everthing in your house will fall over. I am running mine off of a small bank of gel deep cycle batteries

    Re: need help deciding on home audio setup

    the receiver needs a rca sub output on it home theater components cant use line level like car audio can, you need something with a crossover

    then you use a single into dual rca splitter into the amp for right and left, then run the speaker wire to the subs
