View Full Version : Team Russia tests Skar Audio sk1500.1 amps + clamp numbers inside

So after getting to play with the Skar Audio VVX subs - we were anxious to try the amps of the same brand....

and here they are, in Russia


We already had the VVX12's out of the Audi (and sold actually as quite a few people were very impressed by their abilities) and the Sundown z12v2's with d1 coils in.... so this meant we could take two SK1500.1's and and run them bridged @ 1ohm (0.5 nominal per amp)

Gains were set using the SMD DD-1, to ensure that there is no clipping.

here's a good vid playing Gucci, moving quite a bit of air and being slightly loud with 148+ @30hz on the meter (I know it's hard to see in the vid)


and here's the clamp of the power figures @ 148.4


we got 2930 watts of clean power from two amps with a rise to 2.5ohms and a drop to 11.6v.....this is also after about an hour of testing and playing music on drained batteries...... which is **** good, especially at this low a frequency

Overall, the amps are great, very well built, sound extremely plesant and are stable below 1ohm

Good job Skar Audio!

Can't wait to eventually pick up two of these bad boys, maybe after grabbing a set of the speakers and the 4 channel amp.
