Been out of the game for a bit, but finally dug out the subwoofer that I built and hooked it up to the home theater system. 2 15 inch TC sounds drivers in a sealed box. I have a behringer ep4000 amp, but the amp makes too much noise. Want something that will power on when the reciever goes on (12v trigger). Anything out there that puts out enough power to drive 2 15s and is home theater friendly?

Lots of good stuff, some quiet some loud. This is off the top of my head since I do not have any external amps.

What is your budget?
Do you want a plate amp or external rack mount style?

External rack/shelf Mount
Crown xti
Crown xls 1002/1502/2502 (with mini dsp)
Behringer inuke nx1000/3000/6000 (with dsp)

Plate Amps
Dayton Audio SPA1200/2400 with dsp
Ice 250x2 (minidsp)
Rythmik
Speaker Power

Amp for a large subwoofer

Do a fan mod on the EP4000 using a Noctua fan and just keep the current amp

Then buy a 12 volt switch and plug the behringer into that.

Or a green power supply and plug the behringer into the green plug and the AVR into the master control plug

https://www.amazon.com/TrickleStar-O...gateway&sr=8-6

Or build your own (I did this and it worked well)
