OK so here are my speakers. The subs are in a 2.9^3 sealed box, and are being driven by an Adcom GFA-565 each. I am getting tired of all the gear around, and I want to get some plate amps. I can reach 120db with both subs running with the Adcom's. I don't mind losing a few DB, but I do not want to lose the performance(tight hard hitting controlled bass). I have some credit at PE so I was looking at the 500 watt plate amp.

That was the previous setup with the 12" passives. 4 big amps make a lot of heat and look ghetto to me(Adcom GFA-585, 545, and a pair of 565's) to drive a stereo pair of speakers(active XO's).

Hey Mike good to see you around. I was planning on putting an amp in each cabinet. My fear is the Dayton's won't sound as nice as the Adcom's. I did think of getting the 1000w rack mount Dayton and wiring them in series, but then theoretically each woofer would only see 250w or 500w if in series?

Around 450 very clean. The Dayton claims over 500w, but after being in this hobby for a while I have learned that a watt is not a watt;)

Well I got a hold of a buddy who used one on an SVS DIY sub, and he was very pleased with it. I don't know if you remember me. I wanted to do a coffee table sub, but this worked out very well. Even with no bass boost the room gain seems to help it dig pretty low. Not as low as when I had a sonosub tuned to 15hz, but I am quite pleased:) BTW the mids are silver flutes, and the tweeters are Vifa DX25's. Great sound speakers for not a lot of money. I am however going to upgrade the tweeters to the Morel ET338's. Those things are worth the extra money:)
