    Alright my hifonics brutus 1700.1 fried so I sent it in on RMA. They no longer carry that amp so I now have a store credit for 243 dollars. I have a sundown sa 12 d2 and need a amp to power it. What do you guys suggest I buy from sonic electronix??

    Highly doubt you want to run at .5 ohm. Your looking for 1200-1500wrms@2 ohms. The MB Quard ONX1.2000D would be perfect for you.

    Re: $243 sonicelectronix store credit.

    Well, youre limited to .5 ohm or 2 ohm. So youll need an amp thats capable of going down to .5 ohm but youd need a good electrical or you can just get an amp thats rated at 2 ohms. I did a quick search on that website and found this amp. Not the best amp out there, but its still decent. Its rated at 2 ohms.

    EDIT: Also the amp that whitedragon picked out for you is nice too. Should be fine at 2 ohms.

    I read that as he has 2 SA 12 D2's not 1. Either way he can run 1 at 4 ohms or 2 at 2 ohms and still have a perfect power match up. It gives him room to expand if he wants.

    Doesnt matter. 4 ohm power rating is right where it needs to be for a SA 12.

    Not much you can upgrade with gear from Sonic unless your after low end gear. On top of that 99% of people are left wanting more. Not only does this give him over head, which is a great thing nobody here knows anything about, it also gives him room to expand and he didnt have to shell out cash on an RMA. If you had "free" money why wouldnt you get the best thing you could within your budget?

    What do u mean not much at sonic , xs power , headunits , accessories , lots of good stuff they carry besides the garbage woofers ..
    I'm not saying going big was a bad choice but saying it doesn't matter in your last post wether its one d2 or 2 is crazy cause it matters alot lol if he doesn't plan on upgrading he could have saved alot of cash and bought other items all I'm trying to say

    Your sub is a D2 so you will wire it to 1 ohm or 4 ohms.
