    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps

I was thinking about picking up one or the other to compare to my current amp which is a beast at about 140 lbs. I tend to move a lot...

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    Do you guys know of any plate amps that can run straight off the audio outputs from my tv? If you don't have a receiver in your bed room how can i add a subwoofer?

  3. Sonosub with integrated plate amp?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    I'm getting ready to start a sonosub project, and I'm wondering how many out there built their plate amp into the main tube of the sub? I've already got the plate amp, so a rack mount isn't really an option, but I'm debating weather or not to build the amp into the sub or put it in a separate...

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I am working on building a woofer/sub-woof using an old (but never used) MTX 10" Blue Thunder (auto-sound) speaker in a IB enclosure (per Audio X-Press April, 2002). My question involves powering same from a "plate amp" since that is about the same price as the parts for a x-over. I would...

  10. 8Ohm and 4Ohm on a single amp?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Hi, I have been told that its possible to put two front 4Ohm speakers on Onkyo 607 amplifier, with two side 8 Ohm speakers as well. However, I would like confirmation of this, since my amp seems to have a universal Ohm setting for all the speakers, and if I set it on the 6-8Ohm setting, im not...

  15. Spark Audio Vacuum Tube Amp?

    Two Channel Audio
    Found what seems to be a fantastic deal on a Spark Audio Vacuum Tube Amp. The model number is 560 but i don't know much else about the band. From what i found this amp only pushes 60 watts two channels. But is 60 watts from a Vacuum tube amp a lot more than it sounds like. I am not too...

    http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_info.php?t=0&products_id=37 Just wondering if this could be powered by an O audio 500 watt bash in a ported sonotube enclosure. I would probably go 13ft3 or so after all displacements.
