The other question I have is are home audio amplifiers rated differently than pro audio amplifiers. I have a sneaking suspicion that my 200 watt Peavey mixer/amp has tons more power than the 500 watt amplifer (marked 700 watts on the unit itself) included on the Definitive PF15TL+.
Just curious before I try to make it happen.
be EXTREMLTY carefull with the Peavy amps. I am familiar with them and there dampening factor literally sucks. For sub-woofer amplifier. You WANT an amplifier with a VERY HIGH dampening factor. For instance. Crown K1 or Crown K2 come in at greater than 3000. This makes these two amps perfect for subwoofer duties. But also be careful with pro amplifier as usually they only come with XLR/TRS inputs ONLY.
BTW what model Peavy amp you have?
To answer your question. There is a couple of things that would need to happen.
1. The amp plate would NEED to be replaced with some sort of plate/cover that will close the opening. Once that is done.
2. Need new input terminals. This will have the sub wires connected to them.
3. Connect external amplifier to the input terminal and you are done.
It sounds easy but there might be some complication.
BTW I also own this Sub woofer. Not sure where you are getting the 700 watts. The PF15TL+ is 500 watt RMS. I can tell you that it will get you in trouble in an apartment easily ;)
