    Memphis 4k vs Saz-2.5k

    Like the title says:
    The situation is this. i can trade my memphis 4k for a Saz-2.5k + cash. i would run the memphis @ 1 ohm and the saz @ .5 ohm. i more worried about the amount of power then i am the cash honestly. im going to recone my sub regardless ofwhat amp i have to d1 or back to d2. i know both amps do rated. but power wise which would be the better option. to me the only + in the trade would be i would pretty much have the money to buy my recone but i would be decreasing power.
    so looking for imput

    Re: Memphis 4k vs Saz-2.5k

    Honestly man I had the 4k and I didn't like the way it sounded at all the bass just didn't sound right at all I tweaked the amp for a while to sundown just sounds better to me the sq they put out is great one thing I like is the subsonic on the sundown is a lot lower then the Memphis and I like to play stupid low **** lol

    meh...... im not worried about sound quality. when competing spl/db's, its doesnt help. im just looking for pure power and scores on the meter

    as far as the subsonic filter goes i honestly never play below 37hz for what i listen to. but yea im looking for spl more then sq. it was just a thought because he offered it the trade and i didnt think it was a bad one just wanted some other opinions.

    There is no question if your wanting power 4k is the way.I have a memphis 4k too and i never had an issue with sq. People just think sundown is better because that's the wagon everyone is on. I wouldn't give up the power for a for a less power amp and a little bit of cash.
