    I can get the E&W ES-2000 2000 watt power amp for $350... do you guys think it's worth the risk considering it's made from an unknown company? I can't even find a webpage for them!
    Perhaps someone has heard of E&W and can atest to the quality of their products? Well here's a couple pictures: link
    and here are the specs:
    link
    The thing that caught my eye was the bridged mode specs. It states that it does 2000 watts bridged at 8 ohms, but at 4 ohms it's rated at 2000 Watts +-1bD... why wouldn't the rating be higher and what does +-1bD denote?
    Well anyway, I talked to the guy over e-mail and this is what he says about the product:

    What are you planning to power with this?

    Specs look ok but who knows how accurate they are. I'd be careful.

    I'll be using it to power a Buttkicker II, and possibly a Buttkicker I will be added in the near future. I'd get the Carvin DCM2000, but right now I'm a bit strapped for cash [​IMG]

    I don't know why you can't find their webpage. I found it, just like the first link said, at www.ewiusa.net
    Let me know how they perform, I'd like a new amp or two, and at that price, their smaller units must be pretty cheap!

    That's the resellers website, I'm talking about a non-existant manufacturers website.
