Default whats a good (cheaper) general purpose sub amp?

i ask here not the amp forum because this is subwoofer specific and you guys know sub amps.


id like to take my subwoofer passion a little further, i need an amp (pro audio not car audio) that can provide a good strong clean signal for a sub, up to about 3 or 400 real watts.

4,8, (2?) 1 ohm capable??

new or e bay $200 or less.


anything come to mind?

qsc rmx 1450 is what i'm using to power my (2) 38hz 6.5" tang band mini horns off of one channel, then the other channel is powering a lab 12 powered horn which is pretty big, around 15 cubic feet, if i remember correctly it is a 20hz horn?

im surprised there isnt a couple of time tried and tested favorites that people all agree are great amps? considering this is a subwoofer forum, id have thought amps to drive subwoofers would have been a popular topic?

Unless fire consumes Connecticut and Krell has a smoke damage sale, it's fairly unlikely that these conditions can all be met.

If you want something 1 ohm stable that can deliver the goods, you're gonna have to open the pocketbook pretty wide I'm sure.
