    Parts Express has a 250W class A/B plate sub amp on sale right now for $129. Even the regular price of $135 is a steal. The part # is: 300-794. Here's the link:
    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...=9388&CATID=43
    There are app notes to adjust the bass boost on the website.
    Also, I have the 250W class D sub amp from parts express. it packs a heck of a punch for the size... being that class D amps are so efficient. It's far more power than my Shiva can handle for home theater apps. I've got it in a 3.3cuft vented enclosure and like it very much.
    Also, Adire Audio (http://www.adireaudio.com/cd/ava250.htm) has a 250W plate amp that has recieved great reviews. It is the same amp as the "Apex Senior" from www.apexjr.com , however the one from Adire was ordered specially from the manufacturer with the bass boost disabled. It also has a built in rumble filter. It runs $179 - not a bad price either...
    Of course, if you want really nice sound, I'd look on ebay for an old Adcom GFA-555. You can generally pick one up for about $400. They're great amps in general, and make awesome sub amps.
    Well, that's all the suggestions i can offer for now - got2go2class!
    Hope this helps,
    Scott
