    which would you choose

    I am planning on getting a eD 15A and a tsunami amp. I was thinking maybe the db1800T and only running it @ 4 ohms for 900 wrms . It seems like a good buy and if i decide to add another speacker or change the set up I could drop the load to 2 ohms to get 1800 wrms, which I probably will never do. Besides it will run cooler and cleaner @ 4 ohms and still be enough power for the A. Or I could get the Db1100d and run it @ 1ohm and squeeze 1100wrms out of it with no options of expanding. The 15A will be in a vented enclosure so 1100 wrms may be pushing it a little. Please give me any reasons you would choose one set up over the other.

    And also would 4awg power wire be sufficient for the 1800T if i only planned on running 4ohms 900wrms?

    Re: which would you choose

    I like the idea of the 1800 amps and a single 15A. As you said, more expansion possibilities. Oh, and I wouldn't go that far as to say that you won't ever require 1800W+ RMS from them.

    As for wiring, I guess you COULD get away with a 4gauge, but to be safe, at least a 2? If you're concerned about wiring costs, get welder's cable instead. Ask snova for details.

    Cool, I have already ordered the 15a and the 1800. I am going to try 4awg with a 90 or a 100 amp fuse because I already have it in my truck from last amp. I believe the 4 gauge will be alright as long as I keep it at a 4ohm load with 900wrms. If i ever decide to add another 15A and drop the load to 2 ohm I will definately get something 2awg or bigger.
