  • EP4000 amps

    Just wondering...

    As many people that have used the EP2000/EP4000's for DIY subs, I'm surprised there are not more people here using them for CHT subs...
    Especially with the recent fiasco with the Inuke amps...

    Any user experiences? I was thinking for the price per watt, this might be a better choice than the Dayton SPA1000 for a pair of SS-18's (with fan mod of course)?

    Respectfully,

    I used a EP4000 with a 18.2. I was not impressed at all. Sub ran much better with the Dayton.
    I came, I saw, I purchased.

      Maybe the difference for me was having two boxes...

        BA,

        Thanks and very interesting!

        I am thinking that an EP4000 might do well for me with dual SS-18's.

        The question now is, do I bridge it to both subs for max wattage and lose the advantage of SUB EQ HT / multiXT32 eq'ing both subs independently, or do I wired each sub to each channel (lose wattage) so Audyssey MultiXT32 can do it's magic with independent eq'ing of 2 subs?

        I guess if I want the huge slam effect with dual sealed subs, I'll have to go Bridged. Quite a loss of power if running 8 ohm load per channel, one sub to channel A, one sub to channel B.

          Dana - The nice aspect of the EP-4000 with the SS-18's will be future flexibility. You can bridge it and try it that way, and also in stereo, to see which works best in your system.

          And in a year, when you want more, just add another pair of SS-18's and run two from each channel.

            Hi dduval, I would set it up per channel first and let Audyssey XT32 do its thing. Now, listen for a couple of weeks...run all of your favorite demos and then try it bridged, run Audyssey again, and see/hear what if any difference there is. :salute:

              This is such an advantage with your passive subs...again, thank you so much for offering your subs this way. :applause:

                    Thanks - It does make sense to true bass lovers. :)

                      My experience with my SS18.T / EP4000 was similar to BA's. :applause: Great sound and plenty of power which was later used in an upgrade.

                        Gorilla,

                        Single SS18 or Duals? How did you wire it? for 8 ohm? 4 ohm? or Bridged?
