Phillip Torres (45Bandit): The 12" spec rms rating has went 800 to 700 to 500 in the past couple of months. What's the right spec?
jeff Sanderson: I was looking at the 8" version for my jeep JK. What amp should i go with. a 5 channel with bass remote and ease of instillation or two separate amps. How would you get input from the factory 430N. Thanks!!!
Ruben Umanzor: I blew 2 on 800watts in 2 days
rluna5688: They don't handle 800 rms I blew two on first day running a kicker zx1000
Sonic Electronix: How many watts RMS can these subs handle? If they are Dual 2 ohm subs then go with 2 ohms.
juan gonzalez: which subs would you recomend?? would it be better to get 2 rts 1 ohm or 2 rts 2 ohm? powered by a Brutus 1700D?
Sonic Electronix: You would only want to do it if the subwoofer was single 4ohm or dual 2 ohm.
XxBigZ23xX: could you temporarily bridge a 400w 4 ohm amp to a cvt? does it matter that the sub is 2 ohm and the amp is 4?
Sonic Electronix: A sub does not care what amp is powering it, only that it gets power. Any amplifier that is 800W RMS will work fine for these woofers. The wiring is important, you have to figure out the final impedance of your subs and match it to the amps.
chris h: I'm planning on getting just one comp. RT
is there any specific amp that would be good. Wouldn't it be a monoblock 800watt?
melito04: What about soundstream i have heard some bad things about hifonics that they get into permenant protect thanks
Sonic Electronix: Monoblock amplifiers are always preferred for running subwoofers.
melito04: Should it be a mono amp or 2 channel?
Sonic Electronix: A 1600W amplifier at the impedance your woofers wire to. Try a Hifonics amplifier, make sure you set your gains correctly and listen responsibly.
melito04: What kicker amp would you recomed me to run two 12" comp rt they seem to burn the coils real easy???
melito04: I doubt that it wont push both subs good i got one already On that amp and its smelling like burt it bumps good bt ima try two
Sonic Electronix: You could but you would only be giving each subwoofer half of it's rated power. They will still work but they won't be at their full potential.
Sonic Electronix: The 8 inch sub is 400W RMS and the 10" is 600W RMS.
melito04: Can i do 2 12 on an 800 watt mono alpine amp?
