Amp Recommendation

I've presently got a AVA 15 in a 4^3 ft sealed enclosure and I want to power it with a pro amp. I also plan on adding a BFD to eq the low end response. The AVA 15's pnom 800W. Since this is a dual 2 ohm driver what would be a good pro amp to mate with it?

Re: Amp Recommendation

Crown, Lab Gruppen, Yorkville Make good amps and i'm pretty sure that they can all handle 2 ohm loads (make sure you specify 2ohm if ordering Yorkville they have 4 ohm versions as well)

Re: Amp Recommendation

Budget?

The QSC PLX amps deserve a look.

Re: Amp Recommendation

I am on a budget a bit!
Maybe I've got two ways to go about this (I hope). I could get the Europower 2500 and run both channels to each of the AVA's coils. Or get the Buttkicker and run the AVA's coils in series. Right now my AVA's coils are wired in serie for a 4 ohm load. Suggestions?
Also, will I have any problems using a BFD with either amp? I'll do a Google search on the PLX amps in the meantime.

Re: Amp Recommendation

I would get the EP2500, then connect it as a 4Ohm load bridged so you get some good power. Ignore the ratings on the EP2500 as it will not put out 2400watts, or even close to it. but it will power the AVA quite nicely.

Re: Amp Recommendation

The Pxl series is out of my range. Will it be ok to connect the BFD to my pre-pro & sub without a cleanbox?

Re: Amp Recommendation

Excuse the spelling. I meant PLX.
