    any plate amps 3 ohm stable?

    I am thinking of using my 12w7 for HT use. are there any plate amps that are 3 ohm stable? I would like it to be reasonably cheap as well, under 300 (if possible). so whats out there?

    I haven't seen any plate amps *rated* for 3 ohms. Try this;

    Re: any plate amps 3 ohm stable?

    yeah, i don't really have the room to run an amp like that. but the buttkicker does sound tempting...

    and the amp doesn't have to be rated at 3 ohms, just stable under 4

    Is that a single 3ohm sub? I would say any plate amp rated to 4ohms should be ok, you are going to have an impedance rise because of your enclosure anyways.

    yeah, it's a single 3 ohm (JL is lame). and I don't want to rely on impedence rise. if the amp blows, they are going to say i'm screwed because i wasn't running a proper load.

    I don't know of any plate amps that would properly power the W7 anyway for under $300

    Get a QSC rack amp, and call it a day.
