I'm going to be joining the oh so recommened diy club..and build a subwoofer. Now the room it will be in is my bedroom which is 12x11(not to big:frowning:) My budget is around 225, less the better:). And I dont need the volume to be crazy loud..so I was thinking a 150watt or so amp. Any reccomendations?

Thanks I was looking at those from looking at the $250 dollar earthquake anyone thread. Do I really need that much watts? Not that its alot but my room its pretty small.

No, you don't NEED that much power. But this is a quality amp with some nice features. You could save $20-$30 with the 100 watt or 150 watt amps but that's not a whole lot of savings, really. 10%-15% of the project budget.

Remember that the 150 watt PE amp has 4.4dB of boost at 31Hz. You can change this by opening up the enlosure, removing a circuit board and replacing 2 resistors.
