    Should I get a bigger amp for my BTL?

    I was looking for some opinions. Right now I have a 15" BTL off of a Hifonics BXi2006D @ 1 ohm. Supposed to be 2kw.

    Re: Should I get a bigger amp for my BTL?

    You definately want more than 2Krms for that sub. If you have any options at all I'd recommend at least 3K to show its potential.

    I would try a different box design if you are not happy. Then if it is not enough see about more power.
