I threw that reply out just as I had to take a conference call with the IRS and a client. That only took about an hour. Then I came to the same conclusion you guys did. In addition most car audio subs need a sub out feed from the main amp don't they? The pro audio subs have a stereo in and stereo outs. I can't feed a sub with the line outs from my EV monitors, that defeats the purpose. The signal path has to go the other way, sub first, then to the EV's. And yes, I need a powered sub not passive.

Scott, the DIY plate amp includes the stereo ins/outs so it accepts the signal first then feeds it back to the monitors. That's not a bad deal, I found a dual 10" enclosure for $39. Just cut out a hole for the plate amp, install two decent drivers and I'm good to go. That may be the best thing.

It would still be cool to have both you and Mac on my speed dial.

Rail gun, baby! Twenty-two bazillion rounds per minute! Only prob is keeping it loaded.

BTW, I have contacted a guy about his craigslist ad for a Behringer B2092A Truth powered sub. It's more than I want to pay and I have no idea where I'll put it, but it was made specifically for my mains. If I don't get that I'll go the crossover and amp route.

I've thought about everything everyone has said here. I currently have messages out to two individuals on craigslist, one with the Polk PSW10, the other with the notionally equivalent JBL PSW-110D. The JBL is halfway across the state but Ai Wants Itt. 150W RMS, good to 30 Hz, etc. I'm just not crazy about having to build or modify cables to use it, but hey. I passed on a Behringer B2092A which is purpose-made for the speakers I have. It was just too big and heavy (75 lbs.).

Ryszard - I checked and the Polk speaker outlets are pass-through, not cross-ed over, so it may not be the ideal solution.

I can't find the exact topic, but on the subject of subwoofers, I use a system that has what I call just a woofer, with sattelites. The woofer is 10" with a crossover built in, the sattelites only 5" mid-high range. I have 2 sets, one in my bedroom studio, and another for live performance. I play mostly to audiences of 30 or less, but have used this system for over 200 in a gymnasium with no complaints of too loud or I can't hear you. The system is the very old Dawn speaker system using a 8 channel Carvin amp. The satelites have dispersers which send the sound out in a pattern like the Bose, and others, eliminating the need of monitors. The whole system weighs less than 50 lbs. I had to replace all the speakers due to age. Both system I found on EBay for less than $200 and the new speakers ran me about $100 for each system. For what I do, it works perfect for what I do. I also have a larger set using 12" sub with 8" satelites that I rarely use. Dawn is now building a new system using the same technology as the Bose, but are about the same price. The original Dawn's were way ahead of their time, and being built and sold in Kansas, they never caught on much. But they sure work nice.
