Are they sealed? What size enclosure? I believe these want more than the clone can give in a relatively small sealed box. Maybe the 5000kw cerwin vega?

These are all proven top-shelf amps of a "similar" build-quality (that ALSO come with warranties)... as least as similar as one could get from a different company! !

In no particular order:
A MA-5050 or QSC-5050, PL380 or PLX3602, or a Crest 9200 or CC5500, or nu3000DSP, crown XTI6002.
I wouldn't be personally confident it comparing it to anything less than a top-shelf amp, as the clones are no slouch.

There is also many other china-based switcher amps in existance. How they compare? God only knows.

An actual closer comparisons would be either a: PS K10 or Crown iT8000 or a few heavy-horses with 900X or 1000X in their names. None are cheap/cheaper so. wink.gif

Having had two sealed RE's on a clone, they take a lot to get moving. if you are wanting them to be purely for sub20hz content you are in good shape, and some of the suggested amps will work fine. I will say though, the LG 14k is killer, and the RE's take every bit of power it throws out, and still could ask for more.
