    Affordable amp suggestions

    Hi guys, I bought a sundown audio sd 2 10 2ohm, as it turns out my measly 380 rms pioneer amp can barely move the sub, so I need an affordable amp which can run this sub at its max potential.


    Thanks

    That sub would do well on 500-1000w, just make sure to set the gains on the amp correctly. Both of the amps posted above would be fine.

    If you wanted to buy new, this would be a good choice - Precision Power PPI BK650.1D (BK6501D) 650W RMS Mono Class D Black Ice Car Amp

    Those amps haven't impressed me, they have to be ran at 0.5ohm to get rated power out of them is what I've read from a few people who have them

    Agreed on the Audiotechnix, it seems like the 1200 clamped somewhere upwards of 1500. Gotta love 12v ratings

    The audio technix seems like a great option but since my car is a hatchback and the interior is like pitch black it's white color would stand out like an eyesore :/
