    Smallest 2.5-3K amp

    I know about the Taramps (are they really legit?) and Stetsom from back I the day, but who makes the smallest 2.5-3K now'a days.

    Re: Smallest 2.5-3K amp

    with koreans you can wire them to the dirt half ohm or lower to see 3k real world clamped. If you wire to 1 ohm then it'll be around 1750 clamped

    With brazilian you can only wire to 1 ohm and expect the same power clamped as the korean but with better efficiency. Its legit as long as you dont treat it like a korean and expect 3k clamped wiring them to the dirt. They can only handle 1 ohm, nothing lower unless its the bass series from taramps or the power series from sound digital, you can treat those like koreans easily wiring to quarter ohm and stuff.

    Re: Smallest 2.5-3K amp

    I think the prv 3500 would win the smallest. 3"x7"x8". The v2 taramps hd3000 is stupid small as well. 9"x 2.5"X11"

    there will not be an 8k unless the agenda changes.

    This is the current model lineup-

    400w
    1200w
    3000w
    6000w
    12000w
    15000w
    20000w
    30000w
    40000w

    This is all for 12v electrical systems.

    Re: Smallest 2.5-3K amp

    I have never heard of PRV...that 3500 is tiny! I forgot about Sound Digital...positive things I heard about them back in the days as well.

    I use to run a couple (one at a time) Stetsom 4k2d's years ago. I never had one issue with them. Loved those amps...the only negative about them was the really loud fan. Almost 120db just that!

    Do all these Brazilian amps have the loud fans? PRV, SD, Tara...

    They all still use fans but the newer models use SMART Temp control so hey only come on full speed when necessary.

    The problem is.. necessary is almost all the time, lol.

    The heatsinks are smaller so they get hot quicker compared to LARGE korean heatsinks.

    The height of these amps are normal size so only small fans can fit.

    Small fan with high CFM = High RPM = Loud dB

    Re: Smallest 2.5-3K amp

    That's what I figured. I knew tha fans were still there, I just didn't know if they had gotten any quieter.
    In a trunk car, as I had them, you could not really hear the fans. However in a pickup, as this is my application, would be annoying if I'm not cancelling it out with bass volume.

    I may just have to end up running two 1500BDCP's if I can't manage to fit a single 3k. All of the korean amps are pretty much the same size, right?

    DD and IA have the smallest Koreans. Most of the rest are all the same size.
