Yer I have an xls2000 running a single ultimax 18 in bridge mode. I can't fault it! I have tried it off a single channel and it works ok too. It will run 4 ultimax 18's but at only 525watt per sub. The um18 can take well over 1000watt easy. It loves power!

I might even stick with the xls2000 for a while, see how it fares! Not sure what to do yet!

Thanks ppl. I think I need about 2 x 2500 at 2ohm stereo to properly drive the 18's cleanly. They do kick pretty hard with lotsa power.

Re: New sub amp

My suggestion Crest Pro lite 7.5 approx. 3750 x 2 into 2 ohm stereo same with IPR2 7500. If you are willing to buy from China FP10000 2500 x 4 at 2ohms of course my big concern what if there is a problem.

Smile Re: New sub amp

This might help I read most of this, it answered a few of my questions.

Another thing that might help call Peavey customer support. I am not saying to get this amp but considering what you get with a 5 year warranty a brand that has been around for a long time and it is not overly priced is making it a good decision for me.

In Australia, No.
