I'd save a 2nd freight, but probably lose a quantity break, as would you and vazzy.
If you don't mind that, I'll contact Justin on Monday

Cheers

That's fair enough.

I already ordered one amp for $230 inc freight, so $20 more however much less hassle, I dont really mind.

It makes you wonder though at $200 they are still making sufficient profit

What about Jaycar? What a rip-off!!!

Vazzy, mate, if you are still interested in a single amp at $230, drop me an e-mail!

IMO, while I like low prices, if they sell them for $399? they’re making a good margin, but any electronics parts business probably sells a lot of things at a small $ margin, with a lot of handling.
They probably need to have some lines they make an easier profit on, especially in a modest market like Australia.

Talking Comments on the amp

I wish you guys were doing this about 6 months ago! I have used this amp and found it to be fine. I'm running 2 Jaycat 10inch titanium drivers in series for 240w no worries. I was going to change the boost cicuitry using instructions from the web, but when I opened it up things looked to be too different. Anyway, after building it all, I did some SPL testing and found that the boost worked in my favour. Graph at http://www.users.bigpond.com/bcolliso/blast.htm for anyone that interested

I've built subs with each of the Jaycar amps (80w 150w and 350) and they've all been good. I'll keep an eye out on this board for next time!

good luck with the bulk purchase
Collo

Great look – I can see a bit of Newcastle in it.

Have you done any comparison of the Jaycar amps with other brands?

What Hz do you cut off do your main spaejkers

How are they for *music?

Cheers

I haven't had experience with any other amps as the Jaycar ones are the easiest I can get to in Newcastle - I do get about 10% discount by showing past receipts.

As for crossover freq. - I use them mainly for Home Theatre, so I just feed the sub LFE only and let the fronts deal with the full range. My amp (Pioneer VSX-D711) has a min. xover of 100hz which is too high anyway.

I've done a bit of response measurement of the sub and the mains to arrive at this arrangement - see http://www.users.bigpond.com/bcolliso/SPL-response.htm - I would be interested in getting feedback about the methods I've employed.

If I realy want to get some thump from music, I can tell the amp to let it through, but I haven't optimised levels for that.

regards
Collo

Hi Collo
I am *not the best person to comment on your methods (tho' they seem fine to me), but to get feedback, perhaps describe them a little more and start a new thread . .

Cheers
