So in my Dodge Magnum I have two PSI Platform 2 12"s (1000W RMS each) in fiberglassed pocket enclosures with approx .68-.71 cu ft. airspace. I know that little airspace *****, but I need the trunk space, and Dave at PSI built them with my small airspace in mind. I'm currently running an old trusty Alphasonik PMA 1000DA amp. I initially planned to wire it at 1ohm to push 2060W to my subs, but for some reason it is shutting off , so i had to wire it at 2ohm's, so it is only pushing 1500W.
My audio guy recommended the Rockford Fosgate T1500, but told me that he's not sure if the difference would be worth the $600. I'm actually thinking about the RF T2500 which is 2500W of constant power.
My question's are:
- Am I simply screwed by my limited airspace?
- Would a amp upgrade yield noticeable results?
- What amp would you recommend?
More info about my subs:
Platform 2 - This is the beast! It has a very large amount of magnetic strength. This particular motor is geared towards high powered, high ouput use. It can be built to work in small to large ported, bandpass, and infinite baffle applications. While most comparably sized subwoofers on the market all lack in terms of low end output, this can be built with to deliver massive amounts of low end, while still sounding great!
If all-out SPL, BassRace, Street Beat applications are your goal, this motor assembly would be a perfect starting platform. With an extended length 8 layer voice coil, a quad stack of spiders, triple leadwires, and a pole blocking cap, these can handle up to 3500w RMS depending on the enclosure type, and up to 25,000 watts of burp power handling.
The motor also has a chamfered pole piece to aid in cooling during daily, high powered use. Some companies charge extra to add this as an option to their high power subwoofers, but it's a standard part of ours!
