    AQ 1200D an overkill for a single SDC2.5?



    Merry Christmas to me


    I know the 1200D will push far more than the 600 RMS of the sub. What do I need to do to keep from blowing it? I've been told just to keep the gains down and I'll be set, but I just wanted to make sure.

    you will be ok if your ssf and gains are set conservatively.

    should be ok... IIRC the AQ1200 does 800@2, and their subs are pretty underrated.

    So with the right box you should be perfectly fine

    Nice equip btw

    Its a 12. Thanks guys.


    and I just looked it up, and it'll do 870 @ 2ohms.

    Bear with me here, I'm obviously new to this whole thing, but how do I set it to run a 2ohms?

    I figured I'll get this up and running first, and if I think I need more I'll throw in another down the road.

    Its a dual 4 so just wire it in parallel

    Hook all the + to the + on the amp and all the - to the - on the amp and it will see 2 ohm's
