or i should use 3 jl audio slash 500/1 amps ?? but that would be my last option..jl amps are too expensive for me..is'nt there any other alternative to run my 3 subs..the subs are 600 rms each so in total i would need atleast 1500-1800 rms goin to them. i can afford single slash 1000.1 amp but 3 500.1's would be too expensive..i was looking at audioque 2200d or 3500d or kicker zx 2500.1 or hifonics brutus 2400 but i heard hifonics are not good amps. any professionals ?

400 - 500rms of clean power is plenty for them, wire them to 2.67 ohms and pick up a good sq amp. You could also just wire each to 2 ohms and get 3 solid sq amps. I would stay away from kicker and hifonics with these. Are you going for sq or spl?

to tell you the truth I think it would be, I've had a couple friends blow 2 10w6v2s off of the 1000/1. You can get the 1000/1 or 1000/1v2 its the same exact thing just different casing, I wouldn't pay more than 4 bills for a mint one though.

I dno how much shipping would be but i could probably find you one for $400 a new would be close to $600 and I dno if its worth it with shipping and stuff to Toronto.

X2 ^^^ I played 3 8w7's on a 1000/1 with no prob. It was more than powerful enough for daily but if you plan on competition then you might need more power.

thanks both of you.i'll probably get 1000.1 then :)

Fach

^^ yeah but who's going into a competition with w6s you know. And if you're going for SQ the 1000/1 will be a solid match, you'll be more than happy.

lol wtf is a SQ amp? bro the hifonics or kicker amps will be fine.. your paying more money for less power..these two have no clue what they are talkin about lol

The JL has a more adjustable EQ(more then my Kicker) but a good deck will do the same thing. That might be what he meant.. I hope
Kicker still smokes it in the output department though

ok i actually want mix of both better sq and around 1500 rms in total 500 for each sub..what do you think about audique amps ?

no clue right?...mmm you're a funny dude, you've never heard of an sq amp? SQ amps aren't just 2 or 4 channel amps. I've heard w7s and w6s on kickers and hifonics, they sound like doo doo. If you have the loot get the jl 1000.

If you can magically make 3 dual 4 ohm subs wire to 1 ohm go for it.
Bro if you feed those subs a good clean signal they will sound great, just not get that loud

Personally I would get the new fosgate power series the CPs. Thats going to be my next amp if I ever need more.

Fach
06-13-2011, 10:02 PM
^^ Yeah thats what I was going to recommend if he wanted 1500rms, look for the rockford t1500bd-cp, those are underrated and you should get close to 1300 - 1400rms at 2.67 ohms.

DDtC
06-13-2011, 10:05 PM
Maybe more then that if his charging system can feed it.

Fach

with imp. rise he'll be close to 3 ohms, not going to get much more than that, maybe 1500ish if he's got a solid extra battery and 0 guage.

sorry but im confused now cuz with slash 1000.1 around 350 rms to each sub is not that satisfactory for me cuz the subs are 600 rms each..i wanted to put atleast 500 in each..im already goin with sealed box..i think i have enough sq already since they are W6s ?? i need some loudness too you know

DDtC
06-13-2011, 10:19 PM
They will be loud just not as loud as you are expecting. They will be fine on 400 RMS and that Chinese made / amp will do that or get very close.. If you wanted LOUD subs you made the wrong choice

Efff that no hifonics BS and buy my Brutus 2600 and pay half of what you would for a d@mn 1000/1 and I bet you wont be able to tell the difference in the SQ...

06-13-2011, 11:35 PM
see guys like these confuse me. 2 of you are saying slash and 2 saying hifonics..what do you say about jl audio's hd1200 it has a bit more power..?? is it is as efficient as slash 1000.1 ??

Bettr n' Revrse
06-13-2011, 11:36 PM
Thats cuz JL stuff is over priced like crazy!

they could be perfect for my system if i had $1500 for 3 jl slash 500/1 amps

---------- Post added at 10:41 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:40 PM ----------

i can still return 3 10's and get 2 12's ..you think i should do that ?? will i notice alot of diff in 3 10's or 2 12's both w6v2 ??

If you have the airspace do 3...

i have space for 3 10's or 2 12's but in a sealed box..since w6s are not that thumpy and with slash 1000,1 i dun wana underpower them..i wanna get most out of my subs 350 rms each is nothing

JL, Kicker, Fosgate and a few other amps are underrated. The reason I'm telling you it fine is the 1000/1 puts out atleast 1200 watts. If you can get 2 12s ported I would do that. But understand the W6 does not get that loud as say a Alpine type R or MANY cheaper better subs. They are made for Sound quality not output. If you are fine with that any good name 1000 watt amp at 2 ohms will be fine for them.

Skip the Slash Series, too expensive and very inefficient. I would go with the maybe an Alpine M12, which is a bit expensive, around $500, but would give you the power you want, even with the weird ohm load. And thats a new price. Or even an Alpine MRP-M2000, which would give you 2k @ 2 ohms, which with the 3 ohm load you have, and the gains a little down, would be very sufficient! It can also be had new for about $425.

Those are just some ideas. Of course you can get the same amount of power from some cheaper (less expensive amps).

I forgot about the Alpine. Good choice.

He could probably find a PDX1000 for much cheaper, but not new :/

if you have the money. go for it, but as i been reading this thread, many has given lots of options. youre going for a sq setup, so having 333 to each sub would be decent enough. I would go with 1000/1v2 and get the subs down to 2.6 ohms

which amp kit should i use with my system ?? is streetwire ZN5K-00 0 Gauge ok ??

Hey what amp did u get? I had a slash 1000 and it was killer. I sent it back for a brutes 1700 pos but I needed the money at the time. The slash put out more then 1000 watts and that was at 4 ohms. This pos I have now is at 1 ohm and can't touch the slash and this thing is starting to die. But I did 2 shows with my 12w 6s and got 143.7 db on the first show, took 2nd place. The 2nd one was bass race and i got a average of 140 db took 1st place. And you can tell the difference of the two amps in sq because that's what my system was made for. If you want a nice sq system then try to run the subs at 4 ohms if not then at least 2 or higher. Oh when i had the slash I did 147.8 on music. If u clamp the amps u will see the slash kicks ***. I got some videos on YouTube under this user name.

I would strap 2 ap apsm1300s and wire the subs for 2.67 and call it a day.
