    Skar amp for sundown subs? yes or no? help

    So I need some advice. I have 2 sundown sa12 d2s and im trying to figure out the best amp for them. Ive had people tell me a variety of amps to get from audiobahns to hifonics. Ive looked around and done my own research because the people that are telling me to get these amps know about as much as I do about stereos which is not that much. So I'm thinking about getting a skar audio RP 2000.1 and run them at 1 ohm. If you guys think that would be a good idea or if you have an idea for a better amp that would work with them please let me know because I'm going to be buying the Skar in about eight hours if I don't hear anything different. thank you for your help guys.

    If that is your budget, it is more than adequate.

    yeah should do fine (peeps here don't like the skar owner but most of their equipment is good).. depends how loud u wanting if u go ported the 1500 would do good as well.. based on new guys catch (ohm load) u will need the 2k sorry i didn't look at ohm load..

    Re: Skar amp for sundown subs? yes or no? help

    So if my final load is .05 or 2 then I cant run a one ohm stable amp? I actually have a Kenwood KAC 9106 pushing both of them right now and they actually pound pretty **** hard that Kenwood only goes down to 2 ohms though.

    Re: Skar amp for sundown subs? yes or no? help

    Id say look in the classifieds first. i wouldn't personally suggest running anything at .5 if you don't have an upgraded alt.

    Doubtful. Its a 2ohm amp. I think it would protect often
