    Just thought I'd pass this along. Some of you may know that
    MCM now carries a new version of a 250W plate amp. Previously, they carried the stock equivalent of the PE 300-794, stock meaning it had the high 30Hz bass boost. But the new version looks to be identical to Adire's 'new' AVA250. It has a crossover defeat switch among other differences. For one, the line level outputs are now true pass-throughs, no longer filtered like PE's amp. This could be good or bad depending on your use for these. The bass boost now appears to match PE's non-boost amp, with an Fc of 19.4Hz, Q=0.732 according to the handy Excel sheet provided by the owner to this forum. R226(56kOhm) and R227(120kOhm) are now the components of interest.
    The actual amp section is unchanged. Hope this helps provide options for those interested. I believe MCM has these on special for $99 through Feb.21.

    Kyle, it's www.mcmelectronics.com. The part number for the 250W amp is: 50-6281A

    They also have a 360watt plate amp with remote on sale for $135. Part # 50-6282. Not a bad deal at all!!!

    Confusing web site listings. I did a search and a list of two products came up: 50-6281 and 50-6281A. The 50-6281's description on the list is:
    "SUB ONLY - USE ITEM# 50-6281A FER AMPLIFIER MODULE"
    Click on that, and up comes a full description and picture.
    The 50-6281A description is:
    "SUBWOOFER AMPLIFIER MODULE 250W RMS AT 4 OHMS"
    Click on it and up comes a page with ZERO data and no picture. ???

    FYI
    The 300-794 is PE's non-boosted amp.
    The 300-796 is the boosted amp.
