So I just bought on craigslist a Hifonics 1200 @ 1 amp. Dude I got it from had it on an AQ 18. Impressive videos on youtube up it. I bought it with out powering it up.
I powered it up to make sure it worked and sold my p500 that I had about 30 seconds after that. Then we finished hooking and setting it up and man does this amp ****.
To get any volume out of it at all I need to be at +15 on the subwoofer level. I got the same volume out of my sub on the p500 at -1 on the head unit. Gain is set just over half, not using any of the bass boost stuff.
I got the amp because I had just bought a Sundown sa-15 but the way its powering this current temporary sub it does not seem like it will do **** on this sundown.
What do I do? It works fine just doesnt seem as powerful. Do I need to just buy a real amp that actually does rated or what?
Don't laugh or judge but I sold my four 10s so currently I am running a single 4 pioneer premier sub. rms on the p500 is 200 @ 4 and the hifonics is over double at 450 @ 4. I literally hooked it up and have half the output. Not sure what the deal is?
