I'm having a hard time finding pro amps with RCA inputs at a low cost.

This unit has "XLR" inputs and I've never heard of it before.

But it does have 500 watts bridged at 4ohms (the 202 model) and is about $200 brand new.

1) But how loud would the fans be?
2) How to hook it up by RCA LFE?


It's about $200 brand new:

Thanks!! I'd actually figured Radio Shack would probably carry something like this, but seeing it in that link makes me wonder. Now I know where to get it at.

And on that note, I think I've settled on the Samson S1000 pro amp, rated at 500 watts per channel @ 4ohms.

One last question, will an amp of this magnitude wreak havoc with my entertainment center's electrical source?

Am just using one outlet for everything.

Man... this forum is great! Thanks, guys! I hope to be able to contibute here and there when possible.

Probably a good choice (I've never used one myself) and I know there are several people over at Home Theater Forum in the DIY Projects forum that have mentioned using that amp and been satisified with it. If you have questions you may want to check with them.
Good luck!

The samson is probably a fine choice. It is used for SVS-subwoofers in the Ultra-series!!!

Later on you should probably try out a Crown K1!!!

The words say it's awsome!!!!
