Hey! I need some help deciding on a speaker amp and a subwoofer. I have a pair of Micca MB42X’s right now, and I was looking to add some more bass to my desk setup. I have a cheap Kinter 2020a+ amp that distorts the audio at about 1/3 volume.
For a subwoofer, I was looking at something like a Micca MS12, BIC America F12, a Dayton 1200, MartinLogan Dynamo 300 etc… My room is about 12.5 by 12.5 feet (with a 4.5 by 5.7 “box” area for my door) and the ceilings are about 7.5 feet tall. I figured something like a 10 or 12 inch sub would suffice.
As for an amp, I was looking at something like the SMSL SA-50, or something like the SMSL AD18, just something that can get my Micca’s pretty loud without distortion (I think around 50 watts should be fine) I also just found the SMSL SA100, which seems like a solid amp.
I’m willing to spend about $200 on a subwoofer and around $100 on an amplifier. Any recommendations or pointers will be greatly appreciated, since I dont know what to buy. Thanks!
