Subwoofer amplifier decision. Can't think for myself.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm finally going to have soem time to do some more work on my subwoofers for my HT. My substage will consist of four D4 13Av.2's and two D2 19Ov.2's by Elemental Designs, so a two channel amplifier is a must as I will be running these through a DEQ.

All enclosures are sealed at about 2.25 cubes. The enclosures for the 13Av.2's are oversized and the enclosures for the 19Ov.2's are undersized.

For the 13Av.2's I would like to have about 2500W and for the 19O's about 1500W.

I realize I TOTALLY bought the wrong VC configurations to make these play nicely, but for both sets I have the option of wiring to 2 ohm or 8 ohm. Unless I run two separate amplifiers, one for the 19O's and one for the 13A's.

I don't care if it is one amplifier or two amplifiers as long as the budget sticks around $800-$900.

I would love to have headroom for these as well as I am a firm believer in what it does for sound quality reproduction.

A few options I have considered are the following:

Single amp options -
Sanway FP14K
Cerwin Vega CV-5000

Dual amp options -
All the different Behringers :P


I'm sure there are plenty of other options out there I am just not aware of so a little help would be awesome. I'm leaning toward the Cerwin Vega though I can't find too much on it as far as real world review goes.

Thanks in advance!

The DEQ doesn't do any XO'ing. What are you going to use to implement that?
*IF* you get a working one, the clone will be the best performing, from what I understand.

If you get two nu3000DSP's it has both EQ and XO's, thus not really needing the DEQ.

What??? Seriously? I swore i read it would eq, xover, etc.....fml. guess i'll sell that then...so you think two inuke3000dsp's would be a solid choice and leave some head room? I think that would definitely leave me under budget a significant chunk as well....

It's the DCX that adds the xover functionality.

Would two inuke3000's be a better solution than the CV and a DCX or something of the like?

I remember now why I went with the DEQ, the UMC-1 I use has a crossover setting for the Subwoofers! Knowing that, will that effect what I should go with?
