    Yes, I guess. Something small in size and cost, that will fully power the speakers.

    Re: Need Amplifier

    well, best buy does usually have 2/4 channel amp/"reciever" for cheap, and it seems like it will do well new...... honestly, though, you can get the last line of real technics aps (i.e. su-v78, su-z.......) and they are a true 110x2rms, small form factor, and many have a power switch issue, being sold for like 10-30 range. i have a couple, and they are great, and a smart buy.



    *IF I have forgotten to exchange feedback, please let me know*
    i buy broken amps....
    No, i will not "gift" paypal. please do not even make it awkward by asking. if the fees are an issue, I am usually inclined to add them. unless you have discount elsewhere, shipping is through usps flat rate, through usps parcel post, or through the roof..... i am in alaska. thanks

    Thanks, but I already bought something different a while ago. PM me with what you have in case I'm interested in buying something else.

    Re: Need Amplifier

    This is my world, since I work for one of the largest commercial/professional audio brands in the world.

    There aren't a lot of rack mount amplifiers on the market with that low of a power rating. We certainly don't make one. The only one that comes to mind is a small amplifier by a brand named Stewart.

    If you can find an old Crown D100 or D250 they sound awesome. You can search Craigslist for a smaller Crown or QSC amplifier. Maybe an old Carver

    In the future, check out the Mackie Thump TH15: it is a 500+ watt active 15 inch two way that only cost $350 for the whole package. They are hugely popular with DJs, bars and churches.

    Since you said that, for home use, what do you recommend to power:
    1- 1 15" Kicker L7 Dual 4ohm 1000rms subwoofer?

    2- 1 12" Pioneer 4 ohm 500rms sub?

    Thanks.

    Any Crown or QSC amplifier that meets your power requirements will do. Don't buy anything Behringer, Cerwin Vega or other garbage. Just don't

    Re: Need Amplifier

    And FYI, no professional audio amplifier in the entry level price points is going to contain the crossover capabilities seen in the car audio world: they assume that you have a separate system processor/crossover. Most people who are looking for something quick and affordable do something like a Rane AC22 or AC23. You can move up to a dBX Drive Rack or something more, but they are all more expensive system processors.
