    using a powered subwoofer

    my room is tiny. its about 17' by 10'. is a 120 watt powered subwoofer enough to get the job done or should i get an extrnal amp and run a subwoofer in a custom box? im looking for sq here not to shake the house.



    Things to look forward to:
    (2) 10" or 12" imperium audio designs subs
    set of PHD MF 6.5" comps
    Completely seal off and deaden my doors
    aquire a 2k amp
    aquire a 2 channel amp for front stage

    Re: using a powered subwoofer

    yea, a plate amp from Parts Express (even the 240W version is only $120) does wonders. SQ comes from the subwoofer selection/enclosure and placement in the room.



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

    my infinity entra sub is only a 10 and 100 watts fills a 15x15 room nicely for me but placement is key imo

    Re: using a powered subwoofer

    yes custom build a sub system. you won't regret it. for even more power, get a Mixer,31band single channel eq and a pro audio amp and you'll have a rocking setup, i love mine.
