Default looking for inexpensive plate amp

I need a plate amp for a 15" Dayton Reference HO/HF

I was thinking this:

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=300-752

and at $160 seems like an awfully good deal. From what I've heard, they also manufacture the amps for Klipsch subs?

Requirements:

1) Under $200
2) Quality

That's about it. Anybody got any ideas?

Stumbled upon this when browsing Madisound today:

After doing some google-ing and some reading, it seems like this would be a good mate with the BASH 300w:

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=300-750

in 1.5 cu ft sealed. Any thoughts?

i have heard that the senior amp from apexjr.com is pretty nice http://www.apexjr.com/Apexsenior.htm

those bash amps look pretty nice as well, i was thinking of picking up the 500w version a while back but decided to get a rackmount amp

The "Senior" is made by the same manufacturer
but the plate is bigger and will give more wattage.

350 Watt compared to there 250Watt

Also this is a Class AB amp (Linear) and not Class D

Also I'll give a deal to the DIY Audio Group till the end of
the year. Dec 31st 2006

$ 125.00 ea Lowest it's ever been....

MUST MENTION THIS POST...
