Need advice on an amp to run 2 x 10" subs
My wife has just got a 1962 Cadillac convertable which has been shortened by 35" and had a pretty special custom paint job. She wants a sound system in it that will be impressive enough to take to car shows without sounding silly in the corner!!
We already have a fairly decent Kenwood head unit and CD-changer, but I have never attempted to do anything that loud before.... We have a pair of Memphis Audio 10" 600W RMS subs with dual 4 Ohm voice coils, so we can bridge the coils to give 2 Ohms per speaker. I have found a Jensen amp which I hope will be adequate, because we are on a VERY tight budget for this...
Is this gonna be worth having, or (bearing in mind this is a convertible) is it just going to sound underpowered? If we have to spend more to make it sound good, then I will, but we are gonna have to wait a bit to save up!
For midrange, we have a pair of Sony 6 x 9's which I will run direct from the head unit for now, but put a small amp on when we can afford it...
Any advice would be great!
