    oh yeah we can recomend several (guy here test amps has a utube channel) but what they saying is with box rise sub may only be getting 3-400 rms.. wire it to 1 ohm turn gain down to 1/4-35% see if that sounds better and learn how to adjust gain so amp don't clip don't turn hu volume over 75-80% max.. also do u have lp xover at like 80-120hz? if box is ported do u have the ss filter set close to port tuning or using it at all?

    Re: Not as much bass as expected

    oh well i see i'm behind on this thread.. check your amp settings and here's a video to help u set gain at least close to where it should be use a 50hz tone i'd say a good setting for 700rms would be 26.4v or so (so 25.5-27 is good just don't go to high with hu volume) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gg2gl-fz2Qc

    I find it quite interesting to the fact that you refuse to let go the extra 4 bucks for paypal fees, as I have ( I let it go. I don't see why you can't do the same.) , and yet you come here "crying" over someone who posted in the wrong section. We have gotten used to it by now....doesn't bother us anymore. But....it seems to annoy you. There's always someone new posting in wrong section at least once a week. You have a choice to leave this forum, or go with the flow. Nobody is pointing a gun to your head and making you start a thread or reply. Bothers you that much, then don't come onto this forum. You need to seriously grow up.

    Re: Not as much bass as expected

    The Hifonics amps in general are going to do much lower than rated on their output, but still should have plenty for that sub. For a reasonable amp I would highly recommend the Orion XTR2500.1Dz as it does over the rated wattage and can be found pretty reasonably. In my search for a reasonable amp output at a food price it is what I decided on going with. Amazon has it for 339.95.

    Re: Not as much bass as expected

    OP if you're still looking for an amp for that sub let us know what type of budget you're working with.

    If you play clean and have decent voltage, that hifonics will be just fine with your application.

    The XTR2500.1DZ is way overkill an XTR650.1 or 1500.1D if you want decent overkill but not insane.
