Re: Amplifiers Tested

The O-Audio BASH 500 is the better amp with an adjustable subsonic filter and EQ. Check the parameters that you have for the MJ-18. They may be the older ones. It has been replaced with the MJ-18M, with a lower Fs and higher Xmax. Definitely an improvement.

Re: Amplifiers Tested

Thank you Mike P.!
I also am very interested in the XO-12 from Torrent Audio.

Problem is the MJ-18M, Oaudio BASH500, and mdf, etc. would be more than $450.
Whereas the Bash 300 or SA 240 would save me over $100. For a first build meant to be super low budget I'm not sure if the 2.5dB or so I'd gain from the extra wattage would be worth it.
If the 500 = ~433w and the 300= ~340w there is even less difference.(those are numbers I've come across on the net, not sure if valid)
But then if I'm considering the BASH300, why not the SA240 with it's added features since I'd only lose another 1db or so?

As you can see I'm confused, what's your thoughts?

Re: Amplifiers Tested

The MJ18M will make the most out of your available watts, since it should be more efficient than the smaller 12's and 15's. Why not try the 300w Oaudio Bash it's only $159. That's $314 for the MJ18 and the amp.

Perhaps I misunderstood, but I have read that the 300w from PE and Oaudio are the same and only the Bash 500 is altered by Oaudio?
If that's true, PE has it for $35 less and the SA240 for another $15 off but with itsa' EQ.
Other drivers I am considering seriously besides the MJ-18M:
Torrent Audio XO-12
Dayton HF15
Dayton HF12

Today I will have time to model the MJ-18M.
