    Is this amp big enough?

    A a lot of you probably know from my last few posts I'm going to be getting an fi sp4 15 either tomorrow or the next day. I had like two people tell me that my crescendo bc3500 wont be enough power for one of them at 1 ohm. What do you guys think? the guy before me had two fi sp4 15's on this amp and he said even though they wanted more power it got loud. what do you guys think though because if this amp isn't big enough for one sp4 then ill probably hold off on buying one and get something else. thanks for the help

    The bc3500 at 1 ohm with that sub will be just fine.

    Yes they'll want more power But you can always add a second bc3500 and call it a day

    is it even worth buying the sub and running one of the bc3500's? I'm hoping it gets down pretty well for one 15

    it seems that supplying the power to these types of subs can be costly. SMH....

    Yes it will be fine get a d1 sub tho. And run it at 2 ohms until you get the electrical up to par. Then run the sub at .5 and slam it hard
