    Will this amp work for my setup?

    Hi I have 2 12in Alpine Type S and i need an amp to power them. They are DVC and their model is SWS-1243D.

    I was looking into The Audiopipe AP-15001D
    600 x 1 RMS @ 4 Ohm, 950 x 1 RMS @ 2 Ohm, 1500 x 1 RMS @ 1 Ohm
    1 Ohm load stable, Input level: 0.2-5v, Bass boost frequency: 30-80h
    Built In Variable 12 dB/ Octave Crossover, Low pass filter: 40-180hz,Subsonic filter: 5-50hz
    Bass Boost 0-12dB, Distortions: <0.2% thd, Signal to noise ratio: 70db
    Dimensions (WxHxL) 7" x 2.5" x 16"

    Will this work for my setup? it puts out enough RMS that I need but I need some review on the brand and model before I make any purchase. If there any other better suggestions please feel free to let me know! Thanks

    yes ,but you will need to turn the gains down ,as the amp puts out more power than the subs can take

    Will I still need to gains down if I wire them at 4 ohms?

    If the amplifier honestly does its rated power output at 4ohm, I would prefer to have the subs wired for final 4ohm too. As for tuning gain level with DMM, it can still be useful if you think that you may, by an accident crank your audio system so much that the amplifier sends a clipped signal which can damage the subwoofers. For a lot of music (rock, instrumental, pop), I wouldn't even bother with DMM, but if you drive subwoofers hard with rap music, or any other music with lots of synthetic bass, setting gain by DMM may be a good idea.

    Yes it will work fine . I really feel that ap gets a bad rap as long as u set your gains properly u will be happy. I am not very familiar with the type s subs but as long as u don't get greedy with the power than u will be fine.


    I personally prefer the apsm series audiopipes might take a look at them. I have an apsm2000 that bench end in the 1100 range at 12 volt 2 ohm. Not as rated but very close and as of yet it has been rock solid reliable .
