Re: Amp for DIY sub

I would jump on the nady in a second if I was sure I could build a x-over.

How loud (or quiet) are the fans?

Re: Amp for DIY sub

Also, what kind of inputs do you use for the Nady or any other pro amp?

A friend of mine has one sitting right above his TV and says it isn't a problem. I've only been over to his house once, but I didn't notice the fans at all.

EDIT: The Nady fans are louder, not quieter, than the Behringer fans. You can, however, replace the Nady fans with quiet PC fans (Panaflo, for example). I think the common fix for the Behringer is to put a resistor in series with the fan to slow it down, because the fans aren't a standard size.

You just stick mono RCA-to-1/4" adapters on the end of your RCA cable, no big deal.

Re: Amp for DIY sub

This is a little over your price, but it'll have A LOT of headroom:

In summary, I need to know where to get 500+ watts for $250 or less. Thanks.
I just sold my Nady XA-1100 in the Classified section for $175 +shipping. There are deals out there. Just look around.

I used the low pass filter on my receiver and no high pass.

Re: Amp for DIY sub

If you are using the sub with a fairly recent DD or DTS surround sound receiver then you don't need a crossover. It's built into the receiver.
