Question DIGITAL amp or ClassAB to drive a bass only speaker?

I have just bought a big pair of woofers in a cabinet. Tannoy B950.

Should I consider ClassAB or the newfangled Digital power amp to drive it?

Once I have this decision made, then it's over to the sub woofer forum to attempt to modify the sub-bass response (none at present).
regards Andrew T.

I have a rythmikaudio plate amp, and some UCD180 amplifiers. From a total cost perspective, its nearly impossible for me to put together a ucd sub amp for anywhere near the cost of a well made cheap import. Got to love the efficiency though of the class d amps.

If you go for a turnkey solution, a lot of the hypex range of products have aux 12 volt, so you could power your sub crossover/input stage.
