I have to think that if the amps haven't failed already, that they are unlikely to fail anytime soon. Most of the failures that I've seen commented on were infant mortality with less than 6 months of use. I'm into my 5th year with my Bash driven PB13 Ultra, no hiccups yet. On the down side, depending on your processor, you would only get 1 channel of EQ...<br><br>
I'd offer 2k for the pair and grin like a cat once I dialed them in <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.avsforum.com/images/smilies/biggrin.gif">. YMMV.</div>

BASH FAILURE RATE WAS MOSTLY CONFINED TO THE FIRST BATCH MANUFACTURED.COLD START-UP IS ALSO NOT GOOD FOR THE BASH. LEAVE THEM IN STANDBY.i HAVE 3 750W BASH AMPS IN STORAGE SINCE UPGRADING TO SLEDGE. THEY WORK AND LOOK PERFECT.
how much were those sledge amps? I have a pair of ultras with the bash and would like to upgrade to sledge. Also were the ya pain to replace?

I think they are around 600-800. Just unscrew it and take the speaker connectors off.

Life without bass is not worth living.

I just had to replace a blown 6 year old bash amp in my PB13-Ultra and it was a simple procedure. The new amp has different speaker connections in a different place so they supply a pig-tail adaptor to make it plug and play.

I haven't had much time to play with it yet but set up basically the same as the Bash amp it seems to have more output at the same levels. 1 port plug installed in 16hz tune. After an SPL meter calibration I'm running my pre-out at -1 and the gain on the Sledge at -13 and it rocks the room!

The new amp is $599.00 Canadian (I see you're in Mississauga) but because I bought my sub there he gave me 10% off and $10.00 shipping to my door next day.

There is only one vendor in Canada (about an hour from you) so it should be a no brainer.

Take Care

I replaced my bash with a sledge and sold the bash for close to the cost of the sledge on craigslist so it all worked out. Install was a little more difficult on mine with some of the wires WAY TOO SHORT. If they were a few inches longer it would have been a very easy install. Everything was included the difference was noticeable.
