    Solid Audio

    My friend bought a Solid Audio amp for $200 plus tax at local shop. Rated at 1200w. Guy at shop said "best bang for the buck."

    Yay or nay?

    Anything else in that price region that'll power 2 Diamond CM3s (SVC) nicely?

    Re: Solid Audio

    As for me, I'd rather go for name brands that are popular (eg. MTX, MMATTS, Alpine, Xtant, PPI, Planet Audio, etc). Never heard of Solid Audio. Inspite of it all, as the saying goes, "You get what you pay for."

    Hey guys, thanks for the replies. Right now the Solid Audio amp is running 2 12" DA M3 (older svc ones). I think my subs can take 400w rms?

    The ratings for the amp are:

    300w rms x 2ch @ 2ohms
    200w rms x 2ch @ 4ohms
    500w rms x 1ch @ 4ohms
    600w max x 2ch @ 2ohms

    I'm not sure if this is right, but I bridged the amp, so it sees my 4ohm subs 2ohms? The bass doesn't feel that tight. It is a HUGE upgrade from my RF punch 40.

    For 2 subs, can you use a monoblock amp?

    --confused

    I would run the subs at 8 ohms mono, to get the 4 ohm stereo power to them. 1/2 RMS is plenty to get the full output from a sub.

    So wiring my 2 4ohm svcs to 8ohm load like that?

    So much power is each sub gonna get? Will it be more the way I have it currently or with this setup? I think I'll give it a try tomorrow.

    Re: Solid Audio

    I have that exact same setup, I got it from the car audio depot. I think the amp isn't all what they say it is but it handles the diamonds pretty well. how did wiring them with the 8 ohm impedance go, more or less power?
