Also, what sort of power do the MJ's like? I had a PE 240 plate for the Daytons and it did a good enough job. I was thinking about a Nady 900 for these guys. Thoughts?

Mike, what are your thoughts on the Bash 300 or even 500 watt amps? Like I said the 240 did not leave me wanting for much.

Typing that gave me an idea. I asked Otto if he unhook 2 drivers and see if the other 2 can hold their own. Our rooms are close to the same size, his being the larger.

? The spec says

You get true audiophile-grade performance that delivers 2 x 230 watts into 4 ohms or 500 watts into 8 ohms bridged, with enough headroom to always keep you on the safe side. The A500's advanced convection-type cooling system guarantees stable, noise-free operation, while its servo-controlled design can drive virtually all passive speakers. Specifications: *Output power (1 kHz, 0.1% THD) per channel stereo: 160 watts RMS @ 8 ohms, 230 watts RMS @ 4 ohms. *Output power (1 kHz, 0.1% THD) bridged mono: 500 watts RMS @ 8 ohms. *Weight: 18.5 lbs. *Dimensions: 4" H x 19" W x 10.85" D

So I could run 1 driver off of each channel or bridge it to squeeze just a little more juice out.

Most definitely. That would be twice the power going to each sub compared to the Bash 500.Mike, would the Behringer A500 Reference Power be better?

What about the AE IB15s? $400 for 4 is a bargain.

myn, I had looked at those and they were a strong possibility but I was in the right place at the right time so I am able to get the MJ18's at a very good price. I had the Dayton drivers in a previous set up and was wondering if anybody had heard both the Daytons and the Mach 5's and could give a brief comparison.

Thanks for the input, though.

Mike, I'll probably go with that amp then. Thanks.

I think PV 2.6 C but I'm not finding much with those numbersWhat's the model number of the Peavey?

The PV 2.6 C is a little less power then that. From the manual:I can run them 2 per channel and get 300 WPC at 4 OHM.

4 ohms, 20 Hz to 20 kHz, 0.1% THD: 100 W RMS

I think that seller has enough of a positive feedback rating and experience that he won't give you any trouble. He also has a decent return policy and since he's probably not shipped yet, you'll be OK.

Did you already pay him or is that still pending?
