    Rockford 2500.1bd-cp

    Looking to run 2 Sundown SA 12's at 4 ohms on this amp. Does that sound legit?

    You can run those sa's either at 4 ohms or 1 ohm on that amp with the gain set appropriately, however, the size of your enclosure will play a part on how much power you intend to feed them.

    Re: Rockford 2500.1bd-cp

    I would like to stay at 4 ohms so I will not overpower them. This amp makes 1500-2000watts rms at 4 ohms shouldn't that be ok if my box is on the small side?

    Agreed, unless you plan to upgrade subs later.

    Re: Rockford 2500.1bd-cp

    OK thanks Sonic. I have the Rockford amp just want to get 2 12's that handle 1500-2000watts total. Would a TC Sounds LMS-r be a better choice than the SA's if I was looking for SQL?

    Dont have any exp with that tc but most people stay away from the new tc's.

    I would recommend:

    2 of this XCON 12 Sound Solutions Audio 12" 1750W XCON Series Subwoofer - SSA STORE
    or
    2 of this Sundown Audio Z v3 12" Sub woofer 1500W RMS Subwoofer - SSA STORE
    or
    2 of this http://store.ficaraudio.com/bl12/

    sonics on the right track but better yet get on the pre-order for the sundown x-12 $300 each and conservative rated 1250rms each

    Re: Rockford 2500.1bd-cp

    I love how the Sundown Z's sound. I was considering them for my next build but everyone I know powers them with around 2,000 watts each. Would a pair of Z's still hit hard at 750w rms each? I prefer the bass to be loud even at lower volume on the headunit too that's why I think the SA's will be a better choice on the power I'm planning on running (1500w rms at 4 ohms).

    Re: Rockford 2500.1bd-cp

    Thought you were going to go down to 1 ohm, hence why I suggested the higher rms subs.

    With 1500 watts rms, I would do the ssa gcon's or the sa's. The gcons would be my first choice in this application.

    Re: Rockford 2500.1bd-cp

    You could probably run the SA's on that RF 2500.1, but it seems like a bit much. Like prior in this thread, I'd change up your subs. I love both that amp and those subs, but I'm sure it could be better for the power and money.
