    Help finding an amplifier

    I wanna make a sub box to fit this subwoofer

    https://m.ebay.com/itm/Orion-HCCA104...56&_mwBanner=1

    Its 2000 Watts rms @2 ohms and I need help finding a AC240V amplifier for a home theatre setup. Id really prefer a plate amp to fit flush in the back of the box. Ive looked and cant find anything, 1500 Watts is the biggest I can find.

    That subs fs is way too high for home theater use. Also ypu shouldnt need so much power since it's for home use. You can use a bigger box vs mobil applications which will lower power requirements

    Re: Help finding an amplifier

    What do you mean by “fs”?
    Also it’s more of a portable “party” sub as well as home use. To play heavy bass tunes with.

    Re: Help finding an amplifier

    Closest I could find https://www.parts-express.com/dayton...-dsp--300-8000 but in a large box should be way more than enough. It would be great on a Dayton Unitmax Subwoofer.

    Re: Help finding an amplifier

    Fs is resonant frequency. Home theater subs are usually hi teens-lo 20's hz. That speaker is for spl competition, so it's tuned to play hi bass/almost midbass since for a given amount of watts, youll get more decibels playing higher notes than low.

    Re: Help finding an amplifier

    That hcca has an fs of 44hz.
    This is an adire tumult, a home theater sub, the fs is 19hz.

    Using that hcca for heavy bass is like trying to drive a nail with a crescent wrench.

    These have good reviews, fs is 25hz.
    Dont get caught up on super high power handling, you can get just as loud with less power by using a more efficient sub. Hi power handling takes heavier voice coils stiffer spiders, etc. Those things will lessen output.

    I run the Dayton powered 15" sub and it is quite impressive especially considering price.

    Re: Help finding an amplifier

    I have a 15” Dayton sub rated at 800wrms and I put 1100 Watts through it but it’s not as portable as I’d like and I want more power. Plus 15” is to big which is why I’m opting for 10”

    its a poor choice, its an in car SPL sub, It doesnt project far, you want a pro audio woofer, efficient and loud. That sub you chose is not efficient, you need to throw at least a 3000 rms amp to it and it still wont get anywhere as loud as a pro audio style sub in the kind of application you need it for.

    You want more power? as in louder? You be WAAAAAAY less loud with that orion 10 than that dayton 15. Cone area matters, If you want portability, build your box out of 11 layered ply instead of MDF.

    I'd try to copy the SVS 15 box where you can plug up port holes to get a deeper response for home movies or open up the port holes for loud party music. Design is key, go aero ported or folded horn style enclosures.
