Hey fellow bass-heads, figured you guys are the ones to ask. Just as the thread title states, I'm looking for about 1000w into 4ohms to drive two, dual 12-inch ported subs (Mcintosh HT-2's). Any suggestions would be awesome. My equipment will be going in a closet so fan noise won't matter. Obviously I would like to try to avoid any hum and if it has RCA's that would be great too. Receiver is the Sherwood R-972. Thanks in advance.
Have those iNukes been 3rd party tested anywhere? For $400 shipped, I get skeptical about their performance. If they can do 1+kW x 2 @ 4ohms @ 20hz with 1% THD for at least a few seconds, then we have a winner of an amp for sure!
"The Behringer was happy to drive 1 channel at 4 Ohms with no reduction in output at 1 minute. Power output was 2.27kW at 1kHz and 2.12kW at 31Hz. This demonstrates that the amp section should drive high power into 4 Ohms without any short-term limitation. However, when driving two channels simultaneously the amp would trip its protection and shut down...If the output power was kept below 1.7kW per channel then the amp would not trip. To leave a margin I left the amp running at 1.5kW per channel to see if I could get a 1 minute figure. Unfortunately after 15 seconds the circuit breaker opened, not surprising at it was drawing 22A from the mains at the time. So in the end I didn't get a 1 minute figure for 4 Ohms running but I expect it will be around the 1.2kW per channel mark as that produces a current draw of 15A which would eventually trip the breaker."
2.1kW x1 or 1.2kW x 2. Not too bad for $400 with DSP.
