    Whats the better amp to run at 2ohm

    A kicker zx1500.1 or a Cerwin Vega Stroker 2000.1? Both do 1500+at 2 ohm, the CV would do more if he decides to switch to 2 D4's to get more power but I don't think he will be any time soon. Also both are around the same price but one has feedback as I have delt with the seller, other has none on this board.



    Current set up: Island bombed out 92 mazda 626. Stock rust bucket

    66 Pontiac GTO, modified stock radio, Crossfire CFA 302, Kicker KS6.2's in the front kicks, Crossfire CFA 452 for the 6x9's I need.

    Re: Whats the better amp to run at 2ohm

    I've never used either of the amps, but I am always a fan of having headroom and the ability to have more power on tap. Plus, kicker makes some very ugly amps.

    Re: Whats the better amp to run at 2ohm

    That Stroker is an awesome amp (I owned 3 of them). Super clean, lots of power. Also way more versatile with coil options. It's so much more amp than that Kicker.

    Class GH topology. A/B sound quality with D efficiency. Yum.

    Re: Whats the better amp to run at 2ohm

    Kicker! But seriously, I told you the same thing about having the head room with the CV etc... Its more "bang for your buck" but if its never going to be ran @ 1 ohm, the head room doesnt apply. lol Both amps will give you around the same power @ 2ohm, one is cheaper and only stable @ 2ohm and one allows for upgrading in the future yet costs a bit more. All depends if he wants to spend the extra money and take the risk with a seller with 0 feedback really.

    Re: Whats the better amp to run at 2ohm

    yeah thats why i'm going to go with your kicker. Feedback on a big purchase is a biggie. Plus the kicker would sell a hell of a lot faster locally if he does decide to upgrade in the future.

    Im not trying to sway you one way or the other...But, you know I'm good for it. I would be weary of making a $300+ purchase from a first time seller. On a smaller amount, Ive taken a chance with first time sellers...but when ya get up there to a decent amount of money, I usually pass on them. Either way you go, if he never goes below 2ohm, you're not going to notice a difference in power and it saves a little bit of money getting the kicker. Personally, I wish I would have bought a 1 ohm stable amp in the first place..but the kicker is a nice amp and one of the better amps out there rated @ 2ohm.

    If he cant agree with it go Kicker. Or ask if he is willing to do a third party kind of thing.
