Amp for Dayton Ultimax 15

I am on search for suitable amp and initially liked the Behringer iNuke 1000DSP but after realizing it has a built in HPF at 20Hz it turned my down because it will reduce the low extension of Ultimax 15.

I will also want to control the esxursion limits and an 11-14Hz HPF would be great.

Does anyone of you guys know an amp that isnt limited up to 14Hz or, what would be great, an amp that has an adjustable HPF 10-20Hz?

(I am sorry in case here is not appropriate please move the thread )

My Builds:
RE AUDIO SE 10 F3-25Hz in 1.8cu ft

Behringer ep2500 or ep4000? They have good response down well below 11Hz. No EQ tho.

Thanks a ton for the info. Those amps may be too beefy for the ultimax 15.. Do you know whether the Behringer EPQ900 can go infrasonic too? Plus is thin too

Re: Amp for Dayton Ultimax 15

The required HPF will be specific according to the subs design. What are you planning to do with the UM-15?

I intend to build a ported sub (was previously considering the re xxx 12 but i dont need that much spl) tuned at16-17 Hz and need linear amp output down to maybe 12 Hz. Or ideally possibility to set a hpf through software from the amp.

Re: Amp for Dayton Ultimax 15

The UM-15 is going to want a big box, around 14 cu.ft. for a 16 hz tuning. How big are you willing to go?

Maybe 18Hz tune.

10 cu.ft. tuned to 18 hz with a Bash 500 which is a perfect match. Porting is two 4" Precision Ports from Parts Express used full length which is 17". Modeling does not account for any room gain.

Thanks, appreciate it Mike. At this large box i consider the cab to be sonotube style, a pvc tube 25inch wide. I would need something different than the bash amp. Do you know whether a Behringer EPQ900 can deliver from 12,13Hz onwards, or another amp for that matter?

Green is the Bash 500 with a 17 hz HPF.
Yellow is a iNuke 1000DSP with a 20 hz HPF.
