Need a recommendation for a powered sub for my passive in-wall subwoofer....

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am adding a Monoprice.com in-wall passive subwoofer [ 100watts/200 watts ] to my Yamaha receiver RX V3900. Would someone suggest a good inexpensive model to power this subwoofer. Also, I may add a second identical subwoofer to my system, so please take that into consideration.......

Thanks,

Ricky

Maybe one of these would work?:

Or a Behringer A500 but I think that would probably be overkill.

I dont know about that audiosource amp, its a good quality amp, but not designed to drive subwoofers. In the same price range you could use something like this:

Parts express has many other sub amps so if your budget allows more then get a bigger one, always get as much power as you can.

Those Monoprice "subs" are more like mid bass drivers.

The MIT-1000s in-wall bridge speaker transforms your smaller 2-way in-wall or satellite speakers into full range monitors. This compact, non-powered sub is not for replacing a decent powered LFE subwoofer, but to bridge the frequency gap often found when trying to pair smaller speakers to a high powered subwoofer. While typical compact 2-way speakers do a fine job of covering the high and mid frequency audio, they tend to taper off at the upper end of the low frequencies leaving a sonic gap between the highs and lows. You can adjust the upper end of your powered subs crossover to compensate, but that ends up sacrificing sound staging and depth of field as the directional upper low end frequencies start to collapse onto the location of your sub. Pair these with each of your main speakers for clearer, more well defined audio and wider sound staging. Bi-amp them with a capable amp or receiver to get the ultimate audio experience. It will be like having massive full range tower speakers without sacrificing any living space.
