    I originaly planned on using a Dayton 12" DVC and this amp . But I have an Infinity 10" KAPPA series from my car sitting arround . Could i use it with this amp , or should I stick to the original plan ?

    I'll second that. You'll get a few Hz lower with the Dayton and transient response is much better above 50 Hz. You could also spend a few bucks more and get a Shiva.

    I'm going to use that same amp to build a friend of mine a sub so let me know how it turns out.

    Has anyone else used this amp? Is it truly 250 Watts?

    Travis,

    AudioXpress (formerly SpeakerBuilder Magazine) did a review of several plate amps last year. Of them, this was one. IIRC, it actually is rated a bit on the conservative side with something along the lines of around 280 watts. Don't quote me on this though. I may have it confused with one of the other PE amps in the review.
