Default Ucd or chip amp?

Hi to all,
I'm new to the forum. I'm building bass units for my horn speakers. Horns are feed by two 300B SE monos, woofers for my bass are 96 db/w/m and 16ohms, and I don't need too much power. I'll use active crossover around 170-180 hz. I'm at the decision of building two mono amplifiers to feed the bass units, my choices would be Ucd 180 or LM 3875 chip amplifier(or other chip variants). Which one will be suitable for this application? Your experience and comments would be appreciated. I'm open to other DIY options.
Regards
Okan

At least IMO, class-D amplifiers have overall better control/detail than chip amplifiers, so I'd chose those.

Hi,

I pretty much like the sound of UCD180 on my woofers equiped with Beyma 10LW30 Neo speakers (up to 90hz), very clean bass !
