Help finding subwoofer amp with SS filter

1118 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Geoff L
This problem has probably been tackled before, but I searched and couldn't find it.

So, do they make subwoofer amps (doesn't NEED to be a plate amp) that have SS filters? I'm looking for around 300rms to be fed to a Vifa MA26WR09 (4 ohms) in a 1cu ft Parts Express enclosure, mostly for music in a 2.1 SQ setup.

Being as I got the woofer for under $100 and the box will be right around $100, I don't really want to spend a whole lot on the amplifier, but might spend more for the right amp.

Thanks in advance

that would be a BASH 300

or the other plate amps with bass boost, you replace a couple resistors to adjust the filter. Or you can get the O Audio BASH amp


I don't see any subsonic filters on either of those amps. What exactly do you mean by "replace a couple of resistors"? I have zero soldering skills.

Is there not an amp that comes stock with SS filters?
The plate amps that have a user modifiable bass boost circuit have the ss filter. the SS filter and bass boost circuit are the same thing, just diferent resistors for your specific needs. I've modded the older PE 240 watters and the 500 watt BASH with excelent results. The O Audio 500 watt unit is the knob adjustable unit, it's a bit pricey though.

Now might be a good time to learn to solder.

I believe that 300 watt BASH amp has a built in 18hz SS filter. Are you looking for a higher or lower frequency for the SS filter, or to disable it? That's when you'll need to start soldering.
Don't want to solder, you might look at the Rythmik Audios ~{A350/Basic}~. Dose 380-watts into 4-ohms at 0.1% dist.

Excellent built amp along with excellent service from Brian the owner.

Adjustable 3-position SS-filter, 14Hz, 20Hz, & 28Hz. Also has Bass Boost avaialable from either flat/none, too 1.5db or 3db.

Bass boost (if used) "works in conjunction with the SS-Fliter selected".
