    I finished putting together my diy dayton sub about a month ago, however im still modding it, I think i will cut it down in height to a more resonable 40"- from its 60". I of course will then me changing the port. I also plan to stuff it with some poly-fill and dress it up a little more, the tube sock i have is really ugly.

    I Hope to get some pictures of before and after, unfortunetly i was impatient when origianlly building it (I did not take pictures of the consruction).

    Now for my question, I'm currently using a 105W into 4Ohms @ 1% THD - Plate amp I transplanted from my old powered sub. I'm thinking that increasing this to a 'good' 200w + amp would please me more. So any suggestions to good amps-plate or otherwise, 200watts @ least and trying to keep it under $200CND. I was looking at pe's 250amp they have but when u add shipping its nearly 250. Are there any good amps I could find locally, in my futureshop or what have you store.

    Thanks alot for all the help I've received down this road,

    I am in Waterloo, Ontario. I bought the MCM Electronics 250W plate amp that is basically the same as the PE one.
    It is currently listed at $129US, however I bought it when it was on sale a few months back for $105. THe total cost to me after shipping and exchange rate was $210CAN. The amp is awesome (mine required the bass boost mod, but they now ship unboosted).
    I doubt you'll find anything in Future Shop that will do what you are looking for and I doubt you'll find much else cheaper AND as good as this amp.
    Good luck...
