Looking for ideas for HT subwoofer amplification (plate or rack)
I am trying to make a Christmas list for the family and I am hard to shop for generally because I have most of what I need and only want electronics. I have been looking around PE and some other sites, trying to get a good idea of what to ask for as far as subwoofer amplification.
I've been using PC power supplies on car audio amps for a while but now looking to just get a nice 1000watt plate or rack style amp for sub amplification. The only 1kW plate I have seen is the dayton SPA1000 on PE, which people seem to have some problems with. I don't know of the brands that are out there for HT equipment and dont know which rack amps or plate amps are good and fairly priced. the dayton spa1000 is 330 on PE and i was looking to have somethign similarly priced. it supposedly does its power at 4ohms but a dude's review said that it is realistically around 650. I will probably find a reciever to power all of the tower/bookshelf stuff but what should I do for the sub?
