    Best DJ power amp for AV passive subs?

    Hi, just need some advice on what is best for 2 Jamo One passive subwoofers. I was thinking of a home power amp but I need it to be 4ohm 200w and, of course it's over £650 for a really good one, to much for me. So, last choice is a pro DJ power amp, but do some go down to 25hz or below? What...
