The amp will be less expensive and give you the same performance.

    people need to stop worrying about overpowering a sub, if you know how an amp works, you could run a Sundown NS1 to a Kicker Comp and be just fine.

    HD is their new line right? I heard people complain about the RIPS tech. I don't even know what that is.

    Thanks for the suggestion but if I said "I don't want a hifonics amp" and you "suggest" a hifonics amp then I can only draw the conclusion that you can't read. Hombre.

    Do you even have a legitimate reason for not wanting to wire down lower? Plenty of people wire sub 1 ohm for daily, with no issues.

    I'm lazy. It came wired in the box and I already had to take it apart once just to fit it in my trunk. I want something that I can just plug and play. I have wires. I have a sub in a box with speaker wire coming out of the box. I just want something to connect the 2 without too much hassle. I don't have meters and all that professional stuff and I don't plan to buy all that since I know there's other options. And to be completely honest (if you couldn't tell already) I don't know that much about electronics in general. I can hook stuff up but don't know anything about resistance, amps, volts and all that stuff. That's why I came to a board with people that know what they are talking about.

    Bro its super easy to wire in parallel. Just run a positive and a negative from each voice coil into the negative and positive inputs on your amp and you're done! Tons of online diagrams and stuff.

    Re: I want 1500 rms @ 3 ohms.

    Alright everyone. Lets say I've narrowed it down to the JL HD1200 and the Rockford t1500. Is the jl worth the little bit extra? It's only a couple hundred bucks which I'd be willing to spend just so everything matches but.... Does the t1500 have anything significant over the JL?

    ... so you're too lazy to get a drill/screwdriver, take your sub out for 5 minutes, follow a wiring diagram (http://www.carstereo.com/help/images...g_parallel.gif) and put it back in? you need exactly one tool.

    you realize that in that 5 minutes, you saved yourself around 200-400 dollars, right?

    I know how to do it. I just don't want to. Like I said, I'm lazy.

    Correct. I'd rather pay someone. If I was that worried about price then I'd have pyramid subs.
