I bought a sub and amp from the now, closed, Elemental Designs. It was an LT.500 Plate amp and the 19Ov.2 Sub.
I had someone help me design a box for it and turned it into a HT sub. The box was a 12 cube @ 20HZ build. I have attached a few pictures of the final design.
Well I enjoyed this new setup for quite some time. Then moved to a new house. Had it hooked up for about 2 months and then all of a sudden it stopped working. So I pulled the plate amp off one day to check things out and found the problem. The plate amp had caught on fire and the boards were burnt/melted. I tried to do the warranty/RMA process with ED Audio. Well to make a long story very short, I sent the item back to be fixed and then never heard back from the company and never received my amp. So I was out a plate amp and had a sub I couldn't use.
Well its now been about 6 months of having no sub for my HT setup and I'm really missing it.
What would my best options be for it? Get a new plate amp? If so what kind, style?
Get an external amplifier for it? I would have to do some box modification to make this work..
I have a Yamaha RX-V671 powering my setup. I would like to keep it simple. A plate amp would be the easiest path I think. Would I run into these problems again? Is there a better product to get?
Figured I should include a picture of the setup, with the giant box in place : )
Thanks for all the help
