    Help laying out HT setup

    I left the car audio world got board. Recently got a Harman/Kardon HK 3475 Reciver. Ive been playing around with it a little with some of my old car stuff. Im kinda on a budget. i pretty much just want to buy a amp for my subs or sub. its going in my garage so it doesnt have to be perfect.

    Ive got
    HK 3475
    Cerwin Vegga 6X8
    Alpine type R 6.5s
    and a pair of Eclipse 8100 series 10"

    what type and brand of amp should i run? i dont need to fully power the subs. from what i can tell i will only need 1 how much RMS is normal for house applications? i deffinatly dont need 750rms like i was pushing in my car

    98 Grand Prix GT
    Deck: Pioneer DVH-P5000MP
    Amp: DD M1b
    Sub: 1 DD 2512 @ 33Hz in 2.5 Cubed Ported
    Wiring: DB Link 1/0
    Rear Stage: Cerwin Vega 6x9's
    Rest is stock for now.

    Bought from: Goindef154 (head unit), Toofast4u (DD Amp), Blove1991 (KNU wiring)

    If you're on a budget, you can get away with buying used. I would look at Pioneer, Onkyo, Denon. sells refurb units pretty cheap. I have an 80wpc Denon that powers some B&Ws and it works great, so you don't have to worry too much about underpowering. 80s a good starting point.

    yes, a plate amp is what you need. get one from MCMelectronics or Parts Express, up to 1000w

    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.
