    Sundown 1500 actual output.

    I've seen the SSA forum's test on them, but that was with not to beefy of a electrical. The voltage always drops to like 12.5 volts. I know it's amp specific, but I want to try to find out how much they will put out. My electrical will be a batcap 3000, batcap 2000 (maybe 2), 2 runs of 0 gauge for power and ground, and a 250a h/o alt. I think my nine.1 might put out just as much power as the sundown. I'm just seeing if it would be worth it to buy a sundown.

    I've seen 5kw out of a strapped pair at 1 ohm ( .5 per amp ) at 12.8v

    I wouldnt think the 9.1 would do as much power, and even if it did it wouldnt do it for near as long before blowing up.

    Well I'm talking about just a single amp's power.

    There will be 2 amps eventually.

    ok 5000/2 = 2500. Strapping the amps doesnt make them do much more power, if any. it just allows you to half the load going to them.

    But that was also at a .5 ohm load for 1. It will be at a 1 ohm load.

    Re: Sundown 1500 actual output.

    So on his electrical he should see 2500w out of a 1500?

    Looks like a great electrical setup, but wow. Maybe I shoulda kept my 1500 :/

    were you gonna run yours at .5 ohm?

    probably should have stated that to begin with if you wanted it specificly

    Sounds like you really don't wanna buy the amp, so don't. Your not gonna see a huge output difference. But the 1500d will be more reliable.

    but to answer your question. at 1 ohm on decent electrical I normally see 2kw...
