Amplifiers Tested

I am hoping someone here can help me.
I have heard and read that somewhere there have been home amplifiers tested and databased.
does anyone know what I'm talking about and more specifically where to find it?

Heh, all you really have to know is the EP2500 is the best bang for your buck.

Re: Amplifiers Tested

That much is clear, but my buck with that purchase wouldn't let me buy a driver.
Next build that will be the amp, but for now I need to get up and running with something decent for a low price.
Currently down to three drivers(Shiva-X, Dayton Reference HF15, Torrent Audio XO-12) and the BASH300 or Dayton SA240.
With mdf and just a few extras I need I will stay between $290-$365 - final cost.

Re: Amplifiers Tested

EAGLES,
You are missing your biggest displacement driver option in that price range. Mach5 Audio MJ18-M. 18" sub with a 3" coil and 15mm xmax for $155 shipped. It be a good match for an Oaudio 300w BASH amp $159, or if you can scratch up a few more dollars the 500w Oaudio (which Chuck tested) is $224.

Re: Amplifiers Tested

How much different is the Oaudio BASH 500 compared to the PE BASH 500?(which is just $185 currently)

I must have bad T/S params as the MJ-18 fell short of a few other designs?

Also, in trying to keep the budget super low I will be most likely choosing between the Bash 300 and the Dayton SA240.
Which would you choose?
