I am in the process of building a scoop design subwoofer with a 1600 watt Celestion driver. I am seeking advice for how to power my sub once I have built it. I am looking at a Peavey PV2600 which can be bridged for a total 8 ohm output of 1800 watts. Since there is only one driver I am planning to use that option, I have read online that I can run this power to the one white mono channel on the driver. I am looking to find out if once I am running 1800 watts from the amp, how will I adjust the wattage to 1600 from 1800? I would really appreciate some help with this.
Item Condition: Working well; cosmetics (see pics) Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Bondi State: New South Wales Payment Method: Cash, Paypal Reason for selling: NLR Further information: Downsizing studio (mixers etc) and also my various speakers etc. One of the dust caps on 601s is broken but does not affect the sound at all. Included are good quality (unopened) crossover parts for DIY crossover improvement (to enhance the sound). Easy to do following on-line guide (or sell parts). The Sonic Solutions PB100 subwoofer is designed by B&W and built in UK. Cross-over frequency seems OK for the 601s3. Selling with studio amp (see seperate advert; Hafler P1000) and Preamp (see seperate advert; Perreaux SM2).

I have a stereo Setup (Denon DRA-375RD and Wharfedale Diamond 9.5) which i am relatively happy with for the time being (with the little one running around).
It is mainly used for music but is also plugged into the TV for when we watch movies. The room is around 20sqm
I was thinking of adding a smallish sub to compliment the system using high level inputs as the amp does not have a sub out.
What would people recommend for a sub $500 sub, i dont mind purchasing second hand as i will eventually do proper HT when the little one grows up a bit.
I would predominantly want it for music but also be able to perform when watching movies (that is more important than sounding good with movies and poor with music)
another newbie question.
I've been after some speaker wire. i've seen people use cat5/cat6 and all that but i think i'd just stick to standard speaker wires.
I'll be using the furthest speaker with about 17-18m because of how the speaker wire needs to be routed.
All speakers are rated at 150W but the Front ones that are rated at 250W.
the amp will be set under the TV and the only wires to be routed to the right will be the front right and the Surround right
all other ones will have to be routed through the left passing from the TV through Subwoofer, front left, surround left, back left and back right (about 17m)
unfortunately the house is rented and i cannot drill foor/wall/ceiling.
I've read online that i would need 14 Gauge wiring for the speakers but didnt say anything about distance. was just power and ohms.
Would it be ok to use 12Gauge instead of 14 gauge? would that have any implications ?
or better to just stick with 14 gauge?
would anyone have any suggestions on wire to buy that wouldnt be that expensive?
what are the thoughts on ugly?
have anyone used knukonceptz ?
I think i'll need in total about 70-75m of wiring so can get expensive fast.
the idea is to use banana plugs for everything.
i would probably use the same wire with RCA connector for the sub.

distance from amp:
