    power for a DD

    i just purchased a new 9515g dual .5 and right now it is being powered by an earthquake phd 10000 w/2 its being run at 1 ohm and doesnt seem to be feeding enough power to it

    So i want to upgrade to something better. What would you guys suggest?

    I was thinking of two sundown 1500D's and strapping them. Would the sub be able to handle it?

    The power rating on that sub and most subs depends on your box and your "music" you are playing.

    Soundstream XXX6500D
    (2) Audiobahn AWT15X (Love this sub)
    6.9 Cu Vented @ 38Hz


    One reason why I hate working at Circuit City...
    "Why does this Kicker only say 750 watts while the Bazooka says 1300 watts and its only 60 bucks?

    well the box is about 4.5 cubes tuned to 35 hz and i plan to play alot of bass heavy music daily. It would be used quite a bit.

    As long as you got 1500-3000 watts to it, you should be ok.

    Pretty sure the SD's should be strapped at 2ohm, might want to check their site to verify...

    unless you wanna wire your stuff down to .25 or 1 ohm... but than again I would just get a d2....
