I need a really powerful amp 5000w max
 
Okay, im will buy the new Tymphany STW 350 15" sub driver, that will get released soon!

the driver is a crazy beast, it is rated at 3500w RMS and 5000w peak power and its dual 8 ohm voice coil, and i will wire it to 4 ohm.
but, but, but i need an amplifier that can handle this sub. i was looking at the Behringer ep4000 which has at bridge mode 2800w RMS at 4 ohm and a peak power at 4000 watt, but i don't know if this is good enough it still lacks some power to run the driver probably or it don't i really don't know.

the amp is only around 300-400 $
and the sub 500-600$

I really hope you can help me:)

I have two behringer ep4000s. Frankly speaking I've found they are garbage for dedicated sub usage. Don't think about the bull**** wattage numbers they provide. And think beyond the numbers.

Look at a Speakerpower sp1-4000 or sp1-2400. Looking at $900-$1000. It sucks paying more but the quality is worth it IMO. 4 ohms isnt ideal for the sp1-4000 it does best with 2 and 1 ohm loads, so it will be perfect when you get a second driver and parallel them for a 2 ohm load.

I'd get an iNuke 6000DSP, this should power it without any issues.

I have looked at it, but i thought i was 6000 w in bridged at 4 ohm, but unfortunately its 3000 w x 2 in 4 ohms, and it won't quite go with the subwoofer driver i think. But thank you for the help:)

The behringer ep4000's are the absolute best sub amps I've ever had. I've tested a ton of pro amps and nothing moves the subs properly *once you set the dipswitches correctly*. Unfortunately, the ep4000's suffer from mislabeled dipswitches and incorrectly documented dipswitches. I have compared to an inuke6000, 3000, 1000, multiple crown pro amps, buttkicker amp (I had laying around so why not), emotiva xpa. When improperly set, the ep4000 just lacked all oomph for subs. When the right dipswitch was set, it came alive and had an incredible bass quality for subs that I cant reproduce on any of the other amps. The closest second was one of the inukes with a slight DSP boost at 20hz. But that had other problems and still lacked some of the oomph the ep4000 has.

The proper setting for the ep4000 is:
1) Bridge mono with input on channel 1
2) Channel 2 gain on front set to min.
3) all dipswitches to the right except 8 and 10 to the left.

The amp cannot properly run 2 subs in stereo. If you try, you'll find the channel 1 sub suffers from the "improper dip switch problem" with no solution. Channel 2 will run a sub in stereo mode as long as dipswitches 8 and 10 are left.

I added a cleanbox pro to the input on the behringer to properly balance the input from my anthem and now I have the sub gain set to 1 click from off it's so powerful. I don't know how much actual power I'm driving but playing music in here I can get things so loud cleanly that my vision blurs, my hair vibrates, and my eyebrows tingle.

I have 2 amps listed in the classifieds.
QSC 4050 HD will do 2000 wpch @ 2 ohms or 4000 wpch at 4 ohms bridged
Crown XLS 5000 will do 2500 wpch @ 2 ohms or 5000 wpch at 4 ohms bridged.
