    Soundstream Rubicon

    I was looking at the Soundstream RUB1.1600D. Has anyone had any of their newer amps and do they put out rated power.

    I had the 2500. Little bit over rated and it's kind of a power hog. Besides that they are pretty good amps, you can run them at a pretty low impedance.

    And this. If you mount it to your box get some rubber feet from lowes or something.

    Re: Soundstream Rubicon

    I was looking at them b/c of the lower price tag. Would I need a extra batt. to run the 1600.1 since they use alot of power?

    Depends what kinda vehicle you have. You might be able to get away with running it on stock electrical if you have a larger alternator.

    also the big 3 is a must. the more you can do to your electrical the better man anyway. i'd still do a extra batt also. what size alt you have?

    I love the rubicon line, I sell a lot of them. They are under rated on power and pretty reliable. check out
    Facebook
    for my last install.
