    Good amp for sa-15

    What would be a good amp for a single sa 15? D4. I know I need to find more than 600 wrms at 2 ohms but what would be a nice reliable amp for under $200? How much power can an sa15 take? I am not planning on doing any electrical upgrades like the big 3, ho alt, etc.

    If you already have the dual 4 and want a descent amp for under $200, I would suggest the Audiopipe AP1500.1. It gives off like 950 @ 2 ohms. Set the gains with a DMM and you'll be good to go.

    Re: Good amp for sa-15

    A 2ohm mono load is a little harder to find decent power. However, if you look around for a bit you will find a few 500-600rms amps that do it at 2 ohm and at a decent price.

    If your enclosure is designed properly it should perform very well with that kind of power.



    You could get this cheap I'm sure...

    Just look through the classifieds and find something rated around 1k @ 2ohm

    FS: Powerbass XA-1500D Mono sub amp - this amp is a decent deal. Keep an eye on the classifieds and you'll find a good deal pretty soon.

    Could also make a post in the WTB section that you are looking for an amplifier that will do 500-750 rms @ 2 ohm with in your budget.

    Yea I already bought the d4 for 165 shipped. I couldn't have gotten the d2 for anywhere near that price. I'll look for an amp on here sometime this weekend.

    The Phoenix gold looks nice. I found a kicker 06zx1000.1 for 170 shipped. It has a 60 db signal to noise ratio, though. Isn't that pretty poor?
