Due to the purchase of my first real TV, I am venturing into digital to digital signal. The TV has no RCA outs, so my Dayton 2.1 plate amp couldn't directly mate up with my TV. With some help of Neal and SDY, there was an option for a converter or amp replacement. Due to potential latency issues with the signal conversion and possible effect on the quality of the sound, I opted for a new little amp. So I just ordered the SMSL Q5 PRO as it has optical in, a remote, and RCA out. https://www.parts-express.com/smsl-q5-pro-stereo-amplifier-usb-optical-coaxial-dac-with-subwoofer-output-2x40w--230-210
This gives me the ability to still use the plate amp for just subwoofer purposes. The SMSL will power at 20 watts a tower (which each consists of 4 Aura full range speaks), which is pretty much the same power the Dayton 2.1 plate amp was putting to them. I will report back when it is set up and I have some listening time on it.
One of the biggest and most powerful amplifiers ever made. They didn't make very many of these so they are quite rare. one was recently tested by oldschoolstereo.com and made over 12,000w rms between the two channels at 1.6ohm per channel. Here is the link I recommend watching it as he goes into the history of this huge amplifier.
And here is the manufacturers underrated specifications:
Output Power at 14.4V and ≤1% THD+N (CEA-2006):
2 x 2600W @ 4 ohms
1 x 8110W @ 4 ohms
1 x 7400W @ 1 ohm
S/N Ratio: 65dBA (1 Watt, 4 ohms)
Effective Damping Factor: 6.39 @ 4 ohms
Freq. Response: 10Hz ∼ 270Hz (-3dB)
Fuse: 600A internal (external 500A minimum)
Dimensions: 29.38" x 23" x 6.5" (74.6cm x 58.4cm x 16.5cm)
Weight: 88 lb.
Only selling because I'm moving agian and need the extra space. The top beauty/mounting plates are in automotive primer ready to be painted to match your build.
Condition is excellent. Price is $1500 picked up in the Dallas Texas area, or best offer, don't bother low balling Id rather keep it to be honest. It's only going to gain value considering how rare these amplifiers are getting. I would be willing to ship it if you cover the costs for shipping. Call or text me for questions: 907-227-8213
Hello all and thank you in advance for your help. This will be my first build and I'd like to build a new subwoofer for my home audio system. I'm flexible, but would like somewhere around 800-1000W to drive a 12" sub in a ported box, and to do this I plan to spend somewhere around $500 or so. I don't have a great idea of what a realistic budget is, so I'm flexible, just would like to keep costs down.
I need some help figuring out where to start. Could someone please point me in the direction of some good resources regarding amplifier selection specifically?
Thank you all.
Quick edit: I'm using an optical connection from my computer to a Yamaha RX-V677 receiver. If anyone has any resources regarding the best connection between the receiver and amplifier, that would also be great.
