ive got an MA-audio HK 1398 700w rms x 2 @ 1 ohm powering 2-12" MA audio XL's 600w rms/1200w max. XLs have 2 ohm DVC and obviously are wired parallel. the amp works fine for most of my music (rock and metal), but some songs with really deep bass like nine inch nails, particularly the song Somehwat Damaged and any other songs with bass drop effects send it in to protect mode. i only keep the gain about halfway and the bass boost i think was at half. these subs arent installed in a vehicle at the moment so i cant go and try anything. it used to be in a 97 nissan XE extended cab and the amp was mounted on top of the box with about 1/4" of space beneath. i do have a horozontal 12v fan that was used on an older amp but i never got around to hooking it up to this one to see if it would work.
basically im just wondering if im better off going with 1 massive or 2 midsize class Ds or if theres things i can do with this one to keep it cool enough. id like to try and keep this amp. its 5 years old and big and i dont have another use for it and probably couldnt sell it for much. any advice is appreciated. thanks!
