    What do you power your subs with ?

    I have 2, NAD S200 amps in bridged mode, and they can
    easily give you 1400 wats in 4 ohm ! They are 30 kilo beasts!

    What do you power with ?

    In my music set up I use a Hafler 9505 which is 250wpc 8 ohms but in my dual 2235Hs it is rated 375wpc 4 ohms. It has plenty of power and control. They claim a damping factor of 1000.

    In my home theater set up I am using a JBL MPA600. It puts out over 600wpc into 4 ohms and on movie soundtracks with deep bass explosions etc. the clip indicators will start to lightly flicker if I am a little above THX reference, which does sound awesome!

    Amp...Altec 9440A.... that has been overhauled by Ira of IRATEC PRO AUDIO REPAIR. They were destined for the trash pile when I rescued them from a hotel.
    Sub...Contra Bass.

    I use nothing fancy just the Parts Express plate amps rated at 175W into 8 ohms. I have one per box to drive my LE-14A's. They sound much better than my AR 12" HT sub. Looks like I will build a 3 rd LE-14A sub for LFE to replace the HT sub. One of these days

    BGW 750 can handle 4-15" drivers where other "higher" powered amps give out. They have stiff power supplies....large power transformer, and large filter caps with enough output transistors to allow 2 ohm loads with good smooth clean sound.

    I use for my HT system a 18 "2240 h , in a ported box. Amplifier is a monoral DENON POA 4400 Model. The loudspeaker do not need more power ( 150 W) , but i am a little suspicious with deep bass response of this kind of "MidFi" and commercial amplifier....

    I hope Audio research or Krell models shall be better...

    Crest 9001s for the loud stuff.Its the real deal!!.A casual rating of 3300 watts a side at 2 ohms for a stereo total of 6600 watts. BGWs amplifiers are not bad either.At the other end of my listening spectrum ,the Hartsfields get a massive 3 watts of single ended power to each cabinet running in full range mode.

    Crown & Qsc

    For my larger systems I use two Crown MA3600vz, 1600 watts at 4 ohms per channel. For my small system a QSC Power Light 236,
    1100 watts at 4 ohms per channel.
    These are used in a medium sized PA system.

    It seems it not unusual to drive with PA-amps,
    the only drawback must be that some of them
    makes noise and has a FAN that buuzzesszz

    Though there are PA -amps that are as good as many
    high end, OR better..

    The Crown and QSC are GREAT i think.
