Hey guys! First Post!
I recently put together a system in my 2010 Charger consisting of 2 American Bass 12's, and a Soundstream Rubicon 2500.1. So far i have been very discouraged with its performance, unfortunetly. I have ran this ruby in the past on a Nightshade 15 and was happy with its performance, but something here just isnt right. I dont seem to be.getting much power to these subs.at all, and at the local audio shop when tested the amplifier i was rather discouraged to here him say i.was only producing 580 watts to the woofers (on 1ohm), do to box rise? I do not know much about this problem i am having, which is why.i have turned to you guys, after a very positive reference.
I was running the Soundstream VIR-8300NR headunit in the vehicle, and was told by the local shop that this may be part of my problem. So i removed the headunit and replaced with an older Alpine CDA-9830 i had just laying around. Quality seemed to be clearer, but that was about all.
I replaced the box with a 2 12 center ported enclousure, 1.85 cuft each. Thiss seemed to.help, but definitly.not.a.fix.
Also added an XS Power D925(I believe)
Previously i was running a crappy powerbass 3xl on a jl 1000/1 v1, and that sounded pritty good so i desided to.upgrade. Now iv got almost $800 into this "upgrade", and my old $100 craigslist system would make this look rather silly.
So i have fallen back onto the amp.... what would be my best choice for amplifier for these subs in the cost/quality ratio? :-D I am a noob, so all opinions are greatly appreciated.
