Putting the finishing touches on my home theater system, and I find myself in the market for a monoblock amplifier. At least, that's what I'm told I need to help drive a passive (non-directional) subwoofer.
Currently, the powered subwoofer and five other speakers (R/L F/B and center console) are all going through the AV in their appropriate slots, whereas the passive sub is going through a 'bi-amp' plug. I'm not getting much from it, at least not compared to the rest of the speakers. Thus, the suggestion from the manufacturer to use a monoblock amplifier.
I really don't want to spend more than $1K, and I'm not opposed to used. Any suggestions along these lines, or suggestions otherwise?
Thanks in advance!
