Re: Pro amp help needed

Personally I would go with the best sub I could, and then later when I had more cash get more. Multiple subs are a great way to even the bass out in the room. Why couldn't you run 4...are you running out of space, or just don't want more than 2?

Well the problem is the HST drivers really do want a TON of power or you are leaving a LOT of the potential on the floor as your barely tickling the driver XMax wise. You can give em a lot of wattage with a pro-amp but I'm likely to be limited by the actual outlet on how much power I can provide that much as I've got a butt load of gear on the breaker and no way to add a dedicated one in.

The reason I cant run 4 independent subs is cost, box size and WAF. 4 subs take up too much room and will look quite ugly (WAF). 2 x Dual opposed subs need bigger boxes than I can really make them to run their best, and also the main reason is I've got 1 2 year old and another on the way.

I cant keep an eye on them 24/7 and last thing I want is for them to poke holes in the drivers. So I want to go with a downfiring sub so they can do that, and then round corners off as well so they cant cut themselves.

So we will see....

I really need to measure my room response as it stands to see where I am with my current setup.
