    I'm not sure if this should go in 'Speakers and Subwoofers' or Receivers/Separates/Amps. Anyway...

    Anybody out there using one of those Carver Cube amps to drive your sub? I think they are 200w into 8ohm

    I like the idea of the quiet and the form factor.

    I have a SVS 20-31CS+, but am interested in any model feedback

    I used a Cube to drive my single 20-39. It puts out like [email protected] I also blew my driver in the 20-39 using a Cube while listening to TPM DVD pod race. Make sure your driver can handle that much power. I'm now using two channels from a Rotel 1095 ( [email protected] ) to drive my two 20-39 subs. The newer SVS models can handle 500watts I believe and would work very well with the Cube. But, a single 20-31 even properly calibrated would be asking for trouble. The Cube is a quiet and cool running amp and would work for a lot of applications in HT. But bridged it puts out considerable power.

    Hope this helps some.

    Helps a lot, thanks.

    I could always use just one channel. I'm getting fine results using a receiver channel now, which I estimate is high 100s into 4ohms.
