So I'm making a life change, started going to school again to get my bachelors in nursing. To do this my wife and I needed to sell most of what we owned to move into a very small place. We built a building on my parents property and will be living there for the next three years so that we can save up a nice nest egg as I go to school. The room is 11x15x8 and has a solid core exterior door and a 36"x60" window. I think it would be fairly easy to fill this room with sound.
There is no way floor standing speakers would fit so I sold them off and my wife asked me to get some wall mountable ones. First thing she said was "BOSE!". I said ummm no, not a chance. My friend from work was selling some speakers so I bought he as they were a great deal and a pretty decent. They are Klipsch RSX-5s with RCX-4 center. My wife likes them so that's a plus.
I tore my DIY subs apart, sold the amps and kept the drivers. So I'm working with two 12" TC sounds epic subs. It took me a lot of convincing for her to let me use both drivers. At first she wanted me to buy an 8 inch and be happy with it. I need my bass!!!
Anyways, she said they need to be in the same cabinet. So I'm going to go dual opposed and use the sub cabinet as the av stand. Itll be between 2 to 3 cubic feet. It'll hold the receiver, bluray, ect. So I need he'll with the amplifier.
First- no pro amp, in this tiny room I can't deal with any fan noise, plus my wife would go nuts as well. I'd love to just get a FP14000 and call it a day.
Second- it needs to be able to provide full power in 8 ohm bridged or 4 ohm stereo.
I'd like 500 watts per driver available. I was thinking emotiva, but have seen that people using them to run subs have an issue with them going into protect with heavy bass scenes.
So any suggestions on a stand alone amp that can provide that power with no fan and is affordable?
