    well 1000 bucks for an amp is alot but considering i was gonna buy 4 of those kenwood amps at 200 a peice an extra 200 bucks would be worth it because that looks like one hell of an amp and what do you mean by @.5?? im new to everything in car audio

    your not going to find a good enough 4 channel or 2 channel for the price. you dont need 4 mono-block amps for 4 subs. you can run 1 mono amp on all four, just have to wire it right. are you getting d4 or d2 subs?

    i would agree to get a solid 3000rms amp. those subs take every bit of 1000 each, just feed them clean power

    your going to be spending a lot in electrical upgrades to be able to power those subs properly. yes get the dual 2 ohm versions if you want to wire to 1, which is recommended.

    Re: need amp ideas for 4 sundown audio sa-8 v2

    We did 4 SA8's on a 3500 a few times..works pretty well. If you plan to run that much power though, you need to consider electrical upgrades to go along with it.


    I would keep the 8's if that is what you want, but look around the classifieds for a used amp perhaps... You could look at the SoundQubed 2200 or 3500 both will do very well on those 8s.
