Well, I had the same dilemma and eventually decided to get the BASH amp (PC13-Ultra).
A 250W increase over 750W do not translate in any audible improvement in SPL levels as they only offer about +1 to +1.5 db improvement. One would need to double the power (go to 1500W) to get a +3 db improvement and notice the difference subjectively.
On the other hand, the Sledge has improved limiters and behaves better when pushed near the edge. However, I did not feel that I would overtax my sub so often as to justify the +300EUR cost. A 5% discount offer for the BASH only helped me make up my mind!
