A ported sub would have more LFE and SPL then a sealed sub. If you want to go sealed, you can expect a lot less low end output.

.
I'm going to humbly disagree slightly here Mike.:sweat: It depends on what kind of a budget Warrant has to work with. IMO...More money than space = sealed. More space than money= ported.

Limited money + limited space = < :hsd:

Warrant,

Do you have a budget that you had in mind for this project? Also it seems like you are looking at doing a pair of subwoofers?

Right. Well in that case a pair of Maelstrom X 18's sealed, one driver for each box, would be a great plan. You could use one EP2500 for both, but you could also run one EP2500 on each driver or a single better amp like a QSC PL3602 if you wanted to get the most out of them.

Is there a a side by side comparison of the amps anywhere? Does Kevin have a Cdn. address as well? Would slingshot to Victoria work to avoid exhorbitant brokerage fees?
You didn't mention that you were Canadian!

A QSC PLX3602 is going to have significantly more power than an EP2500, but it's also twice as expensive. They probably don't sound significantly different at all used in their normal operating ranges. It would just provide extra headroom. I don't know if there is direct comparison, but many amplifiers have been power tested on the Prosoundweb and at other places. Google search FTW.
