external amp for subwoofer
 
I think I'm going to build a subwoofer that uses an external amp in conjunction with a Richter Scale that I have laying around. Can you suggest an amp in the, oh, 200-300 watt range (8 ohm load)? -- or tell me where to look? I've googled, but I don't find much.

[I know this is a DIY forum, and I am not planning to build the amp, but I AM planning to build the subwoofer, so I hope that counts.]

how much are you looking to spend on the amp?

...or find a decent used Adcom GFA-555II off of eBay and run it in bridged mode.

250W/8R for only $159.95

About half the cost of the PE amp, and a better signal-to-noise ratio too.

There are scads of plate amps. I'm looking for an external amp.

this is on the upper-end of your price range, but its a great amp for the price. into an 8-ohm load bridged it will do around 250 watts.
