QSC RMX4050 or 5050. Dual toroidal transformers, classic output circuits (AB/h).

Very good cone control for subwoofer duty, no power limits like most SMPS class D amps.

These are heavy weight amps indeed but if thats not a problem, there you have it.

Might be a bit out of his price range though, unless happy to go second hand

Thank for all the help. its much appreciated. I think I'll be bumping my budget up to more in the 2k(Canadian) $1600-1700USD range. I want spend the money for proper sub duty and am liking the idea of the QSC RMX 4050 for the class H.

Assuming you are based in the states (with the $ for budget) look at the Peavey IPR 2 7500 has some pretty decent feedback and is about that price. It is a Class D amp but has power by the bucket load and a clean sound (apparently).

I took your advice and added another jack to one of the subs in order to run in parallel. That was a hugely helpful piece of advice!

This has been my thinking too with a couple of recent PA related purchases. Up the budget a bit and buy right, not twice (hopefully). Unfortunately the wife does not agree but ... oh well ... that was after the event

Anyway, RMX 4050 and 5050's easily wipes the floor with those much more "powerful" cheap class-D amps like Behringer inuke etc..

We have few QSC MX3000a's as example (rmx 4050 is almost the same thing, just newer version) and they are amazingly good for the price (second hand). Sooo clean power for subs, no anomalies what so ever.

I just cannot recommend those cheap SMPS class-D amps, they are mostly rubbish.

Crest CA series, 12 and 18, also good for sub duty but there might be some issues with reliability.

Haven't personally used them but these seem to offer a lot of power for the price:
Soundgear - Speakers - Amplifiers - DSP


Power supply is rated at 7kW continuous (much more than an inuke):
